There is nothing called as Leave salary apart from annual vacation or any other form of leaves either vacation leave of ordinary paid leave from your accumulated account calculated on your working proportionate to your service period.
If you are asking for leave salary payment in advance before proceeding on leave is very much pracitced in gulf region. All employer pays all dues with leave salary dues before proceeding to country of origin.
Whether your employer is paying additional leave as leave salary over and above approved by labour laws is subject of research then.
Leave salary means "the salary for the paid leave applied" . If you have any other interpretation of leave salary then I am sorry I really don't know what else constitute "leave salary"
Each worker shall be entitled to his basic wage and the housing allowance, if applicable, in respect of his days of annual leave.
