    Are the terms in bold correct, teachers?

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    They are both terms I would recognise in this context.

    "shortfall" = the sum falls short of what should have been paid.

    "leave settlement" is likely to be the amount due in lieu of leave [this will depend on the company concerned and how it negotiates with its employees].

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    Would 'arrears' have been a better word instead of 'shortfall'?

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    Not really. The shortfall indicates that the recipient expected a sum, but that the amount paid was less than expected - there was a shortfall.

    Something paid in arrears is something that is late in payment or paid after a specified date.

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    According to the sentences in the lst post, it was a case of payment not received yet rather than 'amount paid was less than expected'

    I can see what you are getting at, but in this case it seems there was a shortfall in expected payments over and above the normal salary payments.
