Four types of leave you DON'T have to give to employees....When employees ask for leave, you must give it to them because it's your legal obligation, right?

Read on to discover four types of leave you don't have to give to employees so you can effectively manage leave.

Did you know that not forcing your employees to take their annual leave could end up costing you anything up to R15 000 per employee?
That's right - employees that don't take leave could be costing you just as much as those that abuse it.

That's why I'm excited to introduce you to a resource that completely takes the stress and confusion out of managing annual leave in your company.
