i heard my boss saying, "there is no such thing as indefinite leave." Is that for real? I am not really that knowledgeable on that matter, but i heard from several colleagues that it does exist?

yap it does exist..it only means that your leave has no definite or exact time or date to report in the office..you can ask those government employees.. they have that kind of leave..

I don't know about government employees but I'm pretty sure no other company or management would allow an indefinite leave. Every employee is important in a company as it fulfills a certain function. Putting that function on delay without the knowledge of when the person will return an do that task is very inefficient and ineffective. What if the person is never coming back?

It means you're still bind to your contract but your as good as fired.

In the Philippines workforce setting, ordinary employees do not have indefinite leaves. Companies provides a new employee with 15 vacation leaves and 15 sick leaves per year at the most. Some companies increase this days depending on your years in service, some do not. 60 days are given for maternal leaves and 7 days for paternal leaves. Willie Revillame is on definite leave, but this is given to him by his management as a form of disciplinary action. This type of leave is not paid.
