Negative leave (or 'Negative Balance') is when you take more leave than you have been entitled. Allowing negative balance for a leave type is similar to providing leave to your employees on loan.
Employees can pay back the negative leave in a few ways. The employee and employer should agree upon the terms before ever taking the accrual loan.
