Are you sure your condition is being met?

Try this and see if you get an alert box:

if(document.getElementById("empStatus").value == "Y")
                  {
                        alert("condition met");
                        document.getElementById("Approve").style.cursor='default';
                        document.getElementById("Approve").disabled = true;
                  }

This is the behavior because disabled is not a standard property of hyperlinks. If you want to disable a hyperlink, you can do several things. One is to temporary remove the href property, something like

document.getElementById("Approve").removeAttribute("href");

Then, you will still need to remove the onclick. The other method is again change around the onclick, then you can add a disabled style to the hyperlink using Javascript and style disabled links a certain way (default cursor, certain color, etc.)

Both methods, you need to switch the onclick. To disable, for example, you will need

document.getElementById("Approve").onclick = function() { return false; }
