dear all
we all are writing what their establishment is giving leave to their employees but actually it is not right ,we should consider what law says beyond that we can extend the benifit but we can not curtail it.
all business exstablishment are covered either under factories act or shops and establishmdent act.wheter it is IT industry or any other industry we are covered under one of them.
as per factories act one el for 20 days working and cl/sl/peternity leave as per certified standing order.
maternity leave as per maternity benifit act for 12 weeks.but no act has provision for peternity leave.if anyone have any knowledgepls forward the same for forum knowledge.
