If a female employee is expecting & her salary is such that she is covered under the ESIC benefit but in between her increment takes place & she is not under the ESIC benefit any more so will the company reimburse her or she has to claim it under the ESIC act because (The contribution is for period of April 12 to September 12 but the benefit period for this contribution is January 2013 to 30th June 2013). The female employee is currently 7 months pregnant
There is contributory period of ESIC from April to September and October to March . And beneficiary period from Jan to June and July to Dec.
If one has made contribution from October 12 to March 13 she will get benefit till Dec 13.
we cannot stop the esic contribution if increment takes place in Jan we have to continue deduction till March.
Hope your query is solved. All the best to you.
Trupti rightly answered regarding when to stop contributions.
Seniors please correct in case am wrong.
Greetings of the day!
I fully agree with your first part that Trupti ji has correctly answered the query. However, with due respect to you Sir, I differ with your remaining part.
According to section 65 of ESI Act, an employee is not entitled to receive two benefits at the same time for same period. Where an employee is entitled to more than one benefit, he or she has to choose which one of them to receive.
Section 5A of MB Act says, every women entitled to the MB under this Act shall, notwithstanding the application of ESI Act, continue to be so entitled until she becomes qualified to claim MB under ESI Act.
