Hello guys,
I’ve been working for the employer 3 years but they don’t provide any leaves at all including annual leave, sick leave,... whenever i’m on holiday, they didn’t pay annual leave or when i sent them medical certificates, they didn’t pay for sick leaves. And no annual leaves amount on payslips.

Is that illegal? Most of the staffs don’t have any leaves from them. They only chose 1-2 people for leaves
Thanks for your help

What does your employment contract say? Sounds like you are hired as a casual/contractor and paid a flat hourly/daily rate.

First things first...

Are you even being paid "on the books"?
Pay slips? Time sheets?
Payment Summaries?
Tax?
