Our expert says:
I sympathize with your situation, but do not have the legal and bureaucratic expertise to answer your question. It must depend, surely, on the precise company policies and interpretations on which your employer works - isn't there an HR dept you could discuss this with, who could give you the right information ? I don't think there are any universal, employer-independent rules on this point.
