In France it depends how the contract is written. If it does not authorize to take leaves, they have to be paid by the employer at the end of the contract ; if they are authorized and you did not took them, they are lost and not paid.
In Philippine labor law, unused sick leaves and vacation leaves are paid. However, there are conditions. In most of the companies I've worked with, all unused sick leaves are convertible to cash. However, there is a limit as to how many unused vacation leaves can be converted to cash.
