The employee was granted leave on loss of pay. On expiry of this period , he should have resumed his duties but he did not. He reported day after and wanted his absence for the day to be treated as paid Sick Leave. Your refusal to do so is correct because it was in continuation of sanctioned leave on loss of pay and perhaps he did not intimate why he could not resume on due date. Besides, if he has no leave to his credit as stated by you, where is the justification to treat it as paid sick leave.

You don't want to treat it as either sick leave or LOP.Then what do you want to do? Marking absent should be inevitably converted as lop or eligible paid leave or send for desciplinerary proceedings.at the end of the every month.
Fear of desciplinery proceedings he requested consideration as LOP.
Give him a chance..in human consideration
If he does it again go for extreme step of irregular attendance
Pls remind salary sanctioning authority has every right to grant LOP for any single day also. No problem sanction LOP for one day also.
