Kindly guide me about the EL/PL, CL, SL provission under The Govt. Act. Thanks & Regards Umakant
The EL/PL is payable as per Factories Act. When any employee works 240 days in a year he is entitled to get PL @ 1 days leave for every 20 days working.
Provision of CL is under Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act wherein employee may be paid 10 days casual leave whether paid or unpaid in a year at a discretion of the management.
As far as Sick Leave is concerned there is no provision under any act however it is a practice of the companies to give SL to those employees who are not covered under ESIC.
Dear Umakant ,
This is based on the company policy . It depends how much leave company want to give but there are some certain statutory obligation which is mandatory to follow . As per the factory Act 1 EL for every 20 days worked to be given . As per Delhi Shop & establishment Minimum 15 EL need to be given for 1 year of service. About SL / CL there is no provision in Factory Act So follow the state shop & establishment Act . And for Holidays go through the below mentioned website :-
Feedback is appreciated.
With Regards ,
