SINGAPORE – Civil servants and public healthcare workers have been given greater flexibility this year to clear their unused annual leave due to the Covid-19 situation.
In an unprecedented, one-off move, they will get a longer period to clear their untaken leave and the option to encash part of it.
The new move allows some 85,000 civil servants to carry forward half of 2019’s annual leave into 2021, if they have not used it by the end of 2020, said the Public Service Division (PSD) in a statement on Tuesday (Nov 3).
