Forced Leave during COVID-19

QUESTION

Dear HR Practitioners,

Can an employer force an employee to take annual leave or unpaid leave during COVID-19? Is there a maximum number of days?

We encourage our employee to use their leave otherwise the no work will be charge as no pay leave. They can use up their leave credits for the rest of the year. However, if they resigned the overused leave will be deducted to their last pay.
