If an employee applies for unpaid leave while serving their notice, can the employer extend the notice period?

The notice period gives you and your employer time to plan for a smooth handover and transition. Both parties should agree on how you will spend this period, including planning leave and work duties.

If you apply for leave during your notice period, your notice period remains the same, unless both you and your employer agree otherwise.
