Dear Deepa

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.

Mr Sreeniwasan, Is it mandatory to give 12 CL and 12 SL, as what I knew was that minmum of 12 days has to be given as CL or SL. Cant we combine the two? as in just 12 days of SL and CL.

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....?

Dear All, Please let me know the Leave Policy under shops & establishment act. Also would like to know if a company has a policy to give flat 30 leaves can the company reduce it or not. Ravi

Dear Venkat,

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.

Comments submitted as requested.
