My company implemented new rules on Emergency Leave.

"Emergency leave will be deducted from the entitled annual leave. An employee is only allowed to an emergency leave less not more than 5 days in a calendar year of 12 months. Should the employee take more than 5 days, the employer has the right to deduct the employee's salary depending on the number of emergency leave."

Is this in accordance to Labour Law?

I don't know but I don't think labour law will protect workers who are in the habit of taking so-called emergency leave as and when they like and with any limit. The company may as well close shop.
