Wages and Unpaid Leave Calculation

Hi,I know this matter has been brought up a lot of times but I am really confused and need some clarification.I am a permanent employee paid monthly,so this makes me a monthly wage staff,right?My working days are from Mon-Fri.When I did some calculation,my wages does not include weekends and according to my boss,this is only fair as I do not work on weekends.But wouldn't this make me a weekly wage staff?Also,they use this calculation when counting my unpaid leave.For example,in September,there are 22 working days excluding weekends.So when i take an unpaid leave,they deduct the unpaid leave as salary/22 x No.of unpaid leave, which is a lot for one day!What I want to know is,is this the right way of calculation for both my wages and unpaid leave?Please advise,thank you.

Yes, the calculations don't seem to be correct and to your disadvantage. What you should do now is to make a complaint at the Labour Office.
