Unexpected Time-off (Unplanned Leave)

What is Unexpected Time-off (Unplanned Leave) ?


The term ‘Unexpected Time-off’ or ‘Unplanned Leave’ is used to denote the kind of leaves that an employee takes without applying for it. It might also refer to the leaves that the employee takes without informing their manager or supervisor.


Generally, employees would take an unplanned leave in cases where there is some kind of family emergency or in cases of sickness or injuries. Companies generally provide a range of sick leaves in order to accommodate the fact that the employees might have to encounter some kind of emergency sometime.


However, some companies might require a medical certificate or some other document proving that the employee did indeed take the leave for the reasons they had informed after taking the leave. This is done to make sure that the employee does not misuse the sick leaves.
