Annual Leave Entitlement for Employee above RM2k

I would like to know if an employee whose salary is more than RM2k and in non-manual field, does he still entitled to have annual leave? If yes, is the AL entitlement follow what stated in Employment Act? 

Besides, for such an employee like I mentioned above, if he is entitled annual leave, can the company hold the annual leave until he has completed the first 12 months service? This means that he can only use his annual leave entitlement after 12 months of service. Is this legal?

Thank you!!

Their entitlement of annual leave will then depend on the terms and conditions in his contract of service. The number of days of annual leave, sick leave etc etc should be clearly stated in the contract of service. The EA will not apply.
