Hi All,
In our organization, employees have accumulated 40 -50 PL's.
Now they are asking for encashment. Our HR Policy is also not clear on this.

First you have to frame HR policy for PL encashment, there is no statutory proceedure in leave encashment. Do as your management wish.

Dear Vineet,
You have not mentioned the name of the Act under which your unit is covered i.e Punjab Shops Act,1958 or The Factories Act,1948.Leaves provisions are there in both the enactments. It is made clear that there is no provision in the labour laws for encashment of leave during service period but these are encashed at the time of making of full & final payment to the employee. Maximum no of leaves which can be encashed is 30 under EL head. If the mgt. wishes then this limit can be increased.

The organisation should make a leave policy wherein all the leaves like sick leave, casual leave, privilege leave or earned leave are clearly defined... As far as EL is concerned.....
if an employee, has 50 EL balance.. then a policy should be made that at the end of every year 20 EL should be kept balanced and that to EL can be availed only thrice in a year. So and employee can avail EL encashment thrice and that to keeping 20 balance...for that year....

Thanks for the info Jaya. But I've one doubt on point no 5 & 6,as in my organization, Public holiday can be excluded from PL, but we treat weekly of as Leave if a person is taking a PL continue (if WO coming inbetween his Leave period). So I want to know, is it a policy of your organization or Govt?? Also we can accumulate 100 days PL in a calender yr. More than 100 days PL will be encashed (it is our company policy).
