Dear All, This is Deepa ,Please help me out with the leave policy which comes under Shop & Commercial Establishment act
As per Shop Act, we have to give 12 casual leave , 12 Earned leave and 12 Sick leave. Total 36 days. This is the bare minimum leave prescribed under the ACT. However, nothing prevents the management to increase the quantum of leave.
EL is allowed after completion of one year of service.
Unavailed Casual leave stands lapsed and shall not be carried over.
A total of 36 days leave is mandatory. 12 CL,12 SL AND 12PL(Previlege or Earned leave). Accordingly registers need to be maintained every month for all employees. Leave not taken need not be carried forward or encashed.
The following attachment are the list of registers to be maintained as per Shops & Establishment act. If anyone could give me some tips on how much mandatory is it to maintain these registers or anyway that i could reduce these manual work....?
First decide under which of the Acts your unit is covered i.e. Factories Act, Shop Act or National,Festival Holidays & Casual & Sick Leave Act & thereafter go through the Leave provisions for different leaves. In general it is hereby told that CL & SL lapsed at the end of the year & EL may be carried forward to a certain limit.
