My friend doesn't have leave left in his account. He has already used SLs and ELs. Only Pls are left in his account. He will have to wait until July for new leave to be allotted to him.

Please check my sentences.

Whatever SLs and ELs may be, the ones he has used were specific. Write his SLs and ELs.

If another kind of leave is a PL,​ both letters of its initials should be capitalized.

I'm guessing those abbreviations stand for sick leave, personal leave, and perhaps elective leave? If so, then the first sentence doesn't make sense - if he still has one type of leave left, then he can't have nothing left. I'd also write out those abbreviations since they're clearly not widely understood.

I'd shorten it to something like:

My friend has used up all his sick and elective leave, and only has personal leave left until his balances renew in July.

Does "Planned Leave" refer to days which come from his annual allowance but he hasn't actually taken yet? For example, he has a week's leave booked in May.

If that's the case, just say "My friend has used [up] all his annual leave. His new leave year starts in July."
