Manager's Negligence on Filed Leaves of Subordinates

A pleasant day.

This is regarding the issue of my colleague filing his leave form and just leaving it thru his other colleague since he was about to go to other branch. Our manager signed it but since he was also in a meeting that time, he could not remember if he put it on top of the his table or on the work bench of the one who filed said leave. Our manager just took note of said leave and plot it in his calendar. Until such time (about 20 days) that said employee complained that his leave conversion is way too high. He then noticed that the no. of days he filed as leave was still creditted. Thus, he was absent and was not paid holiday premium pay.

Audit, however, reiterated that there is a gap on the procedure of HRD on Leave Approval. But HRD is pointing to the negligence of the manager and was about to sanction him since he was not able to give such document to HRD.

Our manager also insisted that said employee should have at least made follow up on the status of his leave and should also inform HRD about this.

Hope anyone can enlighten me on this.

Thank you.

Command responsibility falls on the manager.
