Even if the Payroll is locked, the Employees are allowed to apply all types of Leaves except LOP; this is because:

  • There are chances Employees may have forgotten to apply Leaves earlier
  • In spite of Employees applying Leaves, there is literally no chance of any pay-outs getting changed

The Employees cannot apply for LOP for the previous months because:

  • LOP means Leave without Pay and the Employees would have to receive a cut in their already paid out amounts.
  • This would affect the statutory figures, which should not be the case
