Default Doha - money instead of annual leave

Did anyone has experience with such cases?

example:
basic salary 30000
accommodation 12000
transport 2000

I used only half the annual leave and the other half will get the equivalent in cash. Does it count only the basic wage or + accommodation. The employer wants to count only the basic salary, while I think it should be counted accommodation also. When I used half of a annual leave I received salary and allowances for the full amount without any deduction.

if you received your basic salary plus your allowances when you took your leave, then surely the same would apply if you are getting the cash equivalent for not taking your leave.

why don't you just take your leave and get both.

I received basic salary plus allowances when I took first part of the leave. I can't take second part leave and get both becouse today is my last working day. I am done here and leaving home. I found in labour low that calculate base is basic sallary. Calculate base, according old labour law, was basic sallary plus cost of living allowance.
I guess you are right Leannmean.

Thanks for help.

Salary in lieu is normal only basic, as your rent should be paid for the entire year whatever. It's not as though they haven't paid you 52 weeks of rent. Check your contract.

Why would you get housing allowance as well as basic in lieu of leave?
