Compulsory Leave

Can the employer force the employees to take the compulsory leave due to less work to do?  Some of them are on the monthly pay basic.  If they don't have any annual leave to deduct, then it will be treated as unpaid leave.  The annual leave entitled is on the prorata basic, so they only entitled 1-2 days annual leave per month.  Whereas the compulsory leave sometimes will be 1-2 days in a month, too.  This has been practiced by the employer for a few months.  They were asked to sign the leave form, it means that they applied for the leave, either annual leave or unpaid leave, not compulsory leave.

Please advise what they should do about it?

That is not good. If the workers are not sympathetic with what the company is facing, I think they have the cause to complain.

In the year 2009, we worked 4 days per week.  With having the mutual agreement between employer and employee, there were about 5-8 days unpaid leave per month.  The working days were back to normal since 2010. In the following years, the business of the company were having profit.  However, our salaries were remain the same.  Due to this incident, we are not willing to cooperate with the employer anymore.

Do we have the right to reject the compulsory leave?  That's mean, we come to work on the day that employer ask us to take leave.

We are kindhearted employees.  Because of the living expenses kept increasing, we are suffering if taking unpaid leave.

Please advise what should we do if do not want to go to labour office.
