Sandwich Leave

What is Sandwich Leave?

Sandwich Leave is considered in leave policy if a public holiday or weekend falls between your leaves then it is counted as leaves. This is counted if the holidays are just immediately before and after the leaves.

If an employee applies for leave on the 14th of august, and there are public holidays on the 15th and 16th, then rather than 1 day, a total of 3 leaves are going to be counted. So, if an employee takes leave on Saturday, even Friday is a holiday, and Sunday will be considered as leave taken, and therefore, rather than 1 leave, a total of 3 leaves are going to be deducted from the employee’s leave balance.

It’s unfair to employees, there are still many companies that follow a sandwich leave policy to stop employees from going on long holidays.

If Saturday and Sunday are week offs, then Instances of Sandwich Leave Policy:

  • If you apply leave Friday.
  • If you apply leave on Monday.
  • If you apply leave on Thursday & Friday.
  • If you apply leave on Monday & Tuesday.
