Hi guys, I am planning on resigning my job. I need to give 15 days of notice and I have 10 days of annual leave balance left. and I am wondering if i can resign and use all of my annual leave. are there any ethics involved in this issue. Let me know.. Thanks,
I wouldn't think that this would be an ethical problem. But don't expect to get a good reference from them if you leave them "high and dry". One thing I try to do is give as much notice as I can and try to work with them so that they can get a replacement or can decide for themselves what their options are. If that requires you to work the 15 days and let them pay you for the annual leave then that's probably the best you can do for them. If your new situation requires you to be there quicker than the 15 days, which is unreasonable in my opinion, then you probably don't have a lot of other options. Not knowing what the new situation is, it is difficult to offer more specific advice. Good luck.
In the US companies are required by law to pay for unused vacation days when you leave. (I'm not sure how it works when you have a "time bank", e.g. combined vacation and sick days, but I'm sure you get some credit.)
Greg, its your right. Make sure you get the benefit in any form, if it is ok with you. First find out from the admin/HR/related dept if the company policy is to pay for the balance leave if not avalied till last. Talk to your boss and tell him you want to avail the remaining leave. If he says they cannot afford to give the leave now, if it is ok for you to get payment for you, no problem.
Or if the company policy is not so, tell your boss that it was no probs for you but the company policy does not allow you to take payment for the balance leave.
If he wants you, he will make the arrangements, likewise.
If not, he will grant you the leave.
Its your right. You are not purposefully giving them a difficult time. They will not be grateful if u will volunteer work for 10 more days.
Unless it has been a company giving you exceptional satisfaction so much so that you cannot really get in this weighing activity for them, be very sure of yourself to avail your right.
Alongwith being a good coder, try to be a good professional as well!

How about taking a nice long vacation with your family with all those leaves and then calling it quits...ofcourse hoping that you are resigning only because you've found a better paying/satisfying job.
