I’ve been working for a company (a startup) for 13 months. My contract states that I have 5 days of sick leave and 5 days of vacation leave, but it doesn’t state anything about when the converted amount will be given if unused. Both the sick and vacation leaves were actually unused, so I thought it will be paid to me together with my 13th month pay (mandated by law to be given before Dec 24, which I had to remind to my boss also). It didn’t happen, though.
Would it be professional to ask my boss when my converted leave credits will be given? I’m about to quit this job in February or March, so if ever, would that be a better time to mention the unused leaves?
