Dear All seniors,
Please help me take a genuine decision.
Our company is allowing 1 sick leave and 1 casual leave per month.
One of our employee took two days leave due to his illness, fever.
He had not met a doctor for his illness.
As per our leave policy I can sanction only if he submit medical document. Other wise it should be a casual leave.
In this situation and as per leave policy in our company he will not get sanctioned his leave unless he submit medical document.
In this way he will loose his two days salary.
Please advice me to take a decision on this. Any option for changing one sick leave to casual leave.
Please advise.
Waiting for your comments

As per me company will ask for medical certificate only if employee take greater than or equal to 3 leaves.
In many companies SL/CL credit on yearly basis.
you can deduct his 2 days leaves under the SL and dedect the leaves from his current SL balance.
Hope this will help you out

Thanks For your response. Please review our Companies leave policy What should I do in this particular condition Medical document means for us are doctors priscription document will do Thanks Soju

Offer to charge 2 casual leave days since he does not have medical documentation. If he doesn't wish to forfeit the 2 casual days then he will have salary docked for the 2 days, this will support your company requirement to get medical documentation when off work due to illness.
Thanks for your advice.
Here in our leave policy is not stating of conversion of sick leave into casual leave.
I think we need to modify the policy accordingly.
Our company is not providing 2 casual leaves per month. Only 1 casual leave per month.
Welcome more comments on this

Dear Sojuloyola,
We do have the same policies as you. it is quite understandable on the person's level that he might be sick and isnt able to provide any medical document from doctor.....ask him to submit any medical precicription or a bill which states tht he has taken some medicine for his illness.
Now a days it is too obvious tht people take sick leave as they need to apply for any other kind of leaves.
Ask him to submit any proof of his illness as it needs to be as per the company policy...thn tht is his job how to produce it.. you need to stick to wat the norms of ur organization has.......
Hope i have added some value to ur question.

Dear Soju,
If you have company policy that 1 sick leave per month,it comes under best practice and your company providing more leaves than it required.
Think socially,if somebody fallen it and he never visited doctors and the illness was not long period than i think it should be granted.
I agree with Mr. Kapi,if he/she has take more than 3 days means serious/fatal illness,then medical certificates is required.
Sometimes short period sickness also visible which showns unconfortable while at work.
Also change the matermity benefits leaves which only for first two child birth,please provide it for any numbers of birth.
Please specified about ESI coverage to those who covered under ESI and sick leaves benefits to be provided to them.
Please specified about PL,1 leave for every 20 working days.
Best Regards

Thanks A lot My final decision is sticking to our company policy. Since no conversion is allowed he is going to loose his two day salary if he fails to submit document within this week Thanks Soju
Very good inforamtion. Plase let me know if we can reduce casual and medical leave to 7 days each without breaching the provisions of laws. Thanks niraj.
