Good day! Presuming that an employee has an aggregate of 20 days of vacation leave credits for this year. And by the end of the year, he/she only used 1 day of the mandatory forced leave. Should HR deduct the lacking 4 days based on the mandatory 5 days leave or is there no need for deduction as long as he/she used at least 1 day of forced/vacation leave?

Particular to the forced/mandatory leave, Section 25 of CSC MC No. 41, s. 1998, Omnibus Rules on Leave, provides, thus:

Sec. 25. Five days forced/mandatory leave. – All officials and employees with 10 days or more vacation leave credits shall be required to go on vacation leave whether continuous or intermittent for a minimum of five (5) working days annually under the following conditions:

(a) The head of agency shall, upon prior consultation with the employees, prepare a staggered schedule of the mandatory five-day vacation leave of officials and employees, provided that he may, in the exigency of the service, cancel any previously scheduled leave.
(b) The mandatory annual five-day vacation leave shall be forfeited if not taken during the year. However, in cases where the scheduled leave has been cancelled in the exigency of the service by the head of the agency, the scheduled leave not enjoyed shall no longer be deducted from the total accumulated vacation leave.
(c) Retirement and resignation from the service in a particular year without completing the calendar year do not warrant forfeiture of the corresponding leave credits if concerned employees opted not to avail of the required five-day mandatory vacation leave.
(d) Those with accumulate vacation leave of less than ten (10) days shall have the option to go on forced leave or not. However, officials and employees with accumulated vacation leave of 15 days who availed of monetization for 10 days, under Section 22 hereof, shall still be required to go on forced leave.
