At the end of the leave, you may, if available, return to your previous position. If the position is not available, you may be offered another available position for which you are qualified. If no position is available, if you are able to return to your workplace, you will be fired and you can apply for the next available position. When could an employee take a vacation without pay? As a general rule, an employee would take leave without pay if he had exhausted his other leave provisions. It can be an employer, i.e. trying to reduce costs/layoffs during business difficulties, or employees, for example the requirement for a longer leave to self-isolate during a pandemic when they are not infected. In addition, the details of the leave should be as follows: sometimes people tend to overload their efforts and overload, which leads to stress and illness. As we can only go on holiday for a few days, one or without pay is necessary for leave without payment. Absence from work can lead to discounts in your pay slip, but sometimes most of us have no choice but to take them, as paid leisure time is already fully exhausted and no further extensions can be made. Leave without pay is not as simple as oral notification to your employer. And since we do not receive a memo or we would like to find in a surprising way that the dear employer has already found you a replacement when you return, you must make a request for leave without pay either by e-mail or on paper.
