Hospitalization Leave under Probation

I admitted to hospital due to dengue fever when I worked at the site. Doctor gave me 2 weeks hospitalization leave but my HR said that these 2 weeks will be unpaid leave instead of hospitalization leave because I'm under probation. Is this legal?

Hi VanessaMeg,

1) Even though your salary not covered under Employment Act, however EA can be as reference what is minimum that an employee can get from its employer.

2) Employee under probation more or less equal with confirm employee.

3) Therefore, you still entitle up 60 days hospitalization leave under the same Act.
