Does anybody know if it is possible to take the pay for unused leave that I have not been able to take? I am sitting with a healthy leave balance and have not taken much this year due to manpower being thin on the ground and have already been told that I can't get any more before the end of the year. The potential for taking any between January and March is unlikely (I may get a week or so) so there is a real possibility that I may find myself in April with 30 days still remaining (I had 15 days carried over from last year). If I apply to carry it over then I'm going to face the same problems next year and the year after that. I have still being putting leave requests in on JPA to give my management a chance to refuse them and therefore show that it is not my fault I'm still sitting with so much. Is it possible to cash them in? Even transferring it to another person as I'd rather give it away to somebody who could use it then see it just disappear.
