Hi This is SRI,
I am in to a new company which do not have any written policies. I need your help. Help me by send me a draft of HR Polices like Leave Policy, Working Time, Permission, Late, Over Time, ect.

From India, Alappuzha
Dear Srikanth,

Please find the Leave Policy as below (this was drafted by me); according to your company needs, you can change the following clauses.

1. No. of leaves entitled.

2. Prefix or suffix (i.e., hoilday / weekly off before or after the leave, employee has taken)

3. A national hoilday / Weekly off falling in between the leaves taken.

4. if there is no leave card, then use a leave application form.

5. Encashment: Either give the encashment at the end of the year or when the employee leaves the company.

6. Encashment can be either basic salary / Gross salary.


Objective:To provide a standard policy for administering and granting employee leaves of absence.
Types of Leave: At_________, there is no differentiated leave. All confirmed employees are granted 30 days of leave per Annum.
Leave Entitlement:
Every confirmed employee is eligible for 30 days of leave per annum.
The calendar year for leave entitlement is 1st April to 31st March of next year / 1st Jan to 31st of Dec of next year.
Leave will be credited at the beginning of each calendar year. Employee commencing or leaving employment mid year, the leave entitlement is calculated on pro-rata basis.
During probation / training, the employee is not eligible for leave. In case of an exigency during this period the Regional VP may grant advance leave which will be adjusted against subsequent entitlement of leave.
Please note:

1. Employee can avail Half day leave; which should be either the first four hours of the work day or last four hours of the work day.
  • Employee can club the leave with weekly offs or public holidays either as a prefix or suffix but not both.
  • Any organization wide leaves like National Holiday or Festival Holiday falling in the period of leave will be taken as part of leave.
Procedure for applying for leave:
You are required to take an approval from your reporting partner at least 2 weeks in advance before proceeding on leave. Requests for leave shall be considered in the light of current and anticipated workloads.
Each person will have a leave card against his/her name that will be updated by the employee as and when leave is taken. On obtaining the approval, the leave card has to be returned back for records. Leave record for each employee will be maintained at each location.
Employee should first check their leave balance before applying for leave. If leave balance exists, the employee should complete the required details in the leave card but if no leave balance exists, the leave will be treated as Leave Without Pay
After completing the required details in the leave card, the employee should seek approval from immediate superior.
The immediate superior has a discretionary right to sanction, defer or refuse leave as per the exigency of work.
If Employee is absent from work for any reason, and that absence has not been previously authorized by his / her immediate superior, he/ she is responsible to notify the immediate superior soon as possible.
In case of such unauthorized absence on a ground of medical reasons for more than three days, employee is required to submit a medical certificate on your return to HR.

Procedure for Cancellation of Leave:
Employee may change his leave plan and reverse the sanctioned leave, in such event the un-availed leave will be credited to his account. The Leave sanction stands void. Employee will need to submit a fresh leave application for availing any leave in future.
The department head can also cancel the once sanctioned leave on situational / need basis. If an employee proceeds to avail the cancelled leave then those days will be treated as absence from duty and the rules pertaining to absence from duty will be applied.
Procedure for Extension of Leave:
As it is necessary to get prior approval for leave so it is also for extension of leave. The employee has to apply to his/her department head for extension of leave well in advance and get it sanctioned to avail them. In case an employee overstays the unsanctioned leave availed will be treated as absence from duty.
Leave Without Pay:
1. When the employee has no balance leave to avail, any leave taken thereafter will be treated leave without Pay.
2. During the period of LWP, the employee is not entitled for any pay or allowance.
3. A maximum of 3 months of LOP can be availed on the approval of the management. This will be applicable only on case to case basis after evaluating the leave.

Carry forward:

You are allowed to carry forward maximum of 30 days leave into subsequent year. Any excess leave will be lapsed. In this scenario, you will not be entitled to receive pay in lieu of any unused leave, while in service.

Upon your separation with the company, you will be entitled to be paid in lieu of any unused Leave at the date of release from Quadrile Partners. If you exceed the leave entitlement, the excess days will be adjusted at the time of full & final payment.

Leave encashment will be based on the Base Pay.

On retirement, Leave encashment is tax exempted subject to certain condition.

1. If an employee is absent from duty continuously for more than 7 days (including any National / Festival / Declared / weekly off days which may fall in-between), an official correspondence from the HR department will be sent to him asking to report to duty and to provide explanation for his absence.
2. Based on the enquiry any action deemed fit would be taken by the management.
3. If there is no response from the employee within the stipulated time mentioned in official correspondence, it would be assumed that the employee has withdrawn his service from the company on his own accord and recorded accordingly.

Maternity Leave:
· All confirmed expectant female employees are eligible for paid leave of absence from work.
· An expectant female employee is entitled for 90 days leave
· The eligibility is for upto two children only.

Dear Anu,
Thank you so much for your valuable inputs, well.. i just have few issues.. i would be glad if they can be discussed :
1) Annual leave - I guess that CL's , PL's, SL's, compensatory offs constitute the annual leaves. Will there be any other types of leave that come under annual leave?
2) Family and Illness leave - will this be leave with pay or without pay..?
3) Can you please tell me what is Bereaument leave?
4) Can you please tell me what is committe work leave?
5) Return to work after disability - will this be a leave or a long leave type..
I also request the HR friends to kindly give their valuable inputs regarding the same..

From India
Dear Harsha,

I have tried to answer your queries, CiteHR members, plz correct in case u find anything incorrect.

1. All the types of leaves, except Maternity & Paternity Leaves fall under Annual leave.

2. i am not sure of the answer to this question, u might as well check it someone else.
But i feel it shud be paid leave.

3. Bereavement leave is paid leave that an employee is entitled to because of the death of a family or household member as defined by the terms of the employee’s employment program or collective bargaining agreement. Bereavement leave is available in addition to an employee’s accrued sick and annual leave.

4. i m also not sure abt this one, i doubt if this type of leave exist in India. i had read this on a company's website based out of India.

5. Diability leave - can be considered if an employee has met with an accident. and in such cases, the emp is paid.

Also, Plz note - the Bereavement Leave & funeral leave is one and the same.

I hope this answers ur queries.

Casual Leave. Every confirmed employee will be allowed 8 days casual leave on full pay in a calendar year. Employees can avail half day casual leave for first half or second half of the shift with prior permission. Employees who join service in the course of the year will be allowed proportionate casual leave after their confirmation in the Company’s service. While calculating casual leave, fraction of leave for half day or more shall be treated as full day’s leave and fraction of less than half day shall be omitted. The casual leave is non-accumulative. However, unavailed full day casual leave will be added to the privilege leave in the following year. Not more than two days of CL can be taken at a time.

Sick Leave. Every confirmed employee will be allowed 4 days sick on full pay in a calendar year. Granting of Sick Leave will be at the sole discretion of the Management.
