Provision of Maternity & Paternity leave.
Are workers also eligible for the same leave policy as that of employees?

Dear Priyanka,

For eligibility & grant of Earned Leaves to workers you are to adhere to chapter VIII of the Factories Act, 1948 which relates to leave with wages. They are also entitled to get seven Casual Leaves as per The Punjab Industrial Establishment (National & Festival and Casual & Sick Leaves) Act, 1965 as applicable to Delhi.

There is also a provision in this Act for 14 days Sick Leave at half pay in a year. However the workers entitled to sickness benefit under the Employees State Insurance act, 1948 are not entitled for sick leave. Since most of the factories are covered under Employees State insurance Act, 1948, the sick leave provisions are generally not applicable on workers employed in factories. It has also been clarified in Section 14 of this Act, that nothing contained in this Act, shall affect any right or privileges, which any worker is entitled to receive under any other law, contract, custom or usage, if such rights or privileges are more favorable to him than those to which he would be entitled under this Act.

You are to go through the definition of the worker in both the Acts i.e. Factories A ct & The Punjab NFH Act, 1965 & extend the minimum required leaves to them in accordance these Acts. After this for remaining staff & officers of your factory who are not covered under the definition of the worker, you may make Rules for grant & procedure of these leaves.

Dear Mr. Khola, There is any difference in Leave Policy between Company falls in Factory Act & Company falls in Shops & Establishment. Rgds Santosh
29th August 2009 From India, New Delhi
Dear Santosh,

Yes. The leave policy will be certainly effected by the coverage of unit i.e. Factories Act, 1948 or the State Shops Act & if both of the Acts are not applicable then also this policy may be different. It is not obligatory for us to frame leave policy under any of the Acts but to streamline & to regulate the functioning of the unit we give our attention to this aspect. When we only grant statutory minimum leaves according the applicable laws of the unit then there is no need of preparing this policy as everything is prescribed in the law.

While preparing leave policy for any unit one should keep in mind the laws relating to grant of different types of leaves. Which is our appropriate Govt. i.e. Central or State? Which of the Central or State laws are applicable? Leave Rules/ policy of the concerned unit should not be contrary to the applicable laws. If we have certified Standing Orders then these should also be kept in mind.
Clarification provided as requested.

Dear Trilok,
We do not find any provision relating to CL & SL on carrying forward the leaves. These leaves lapses at the end of the year. If you have leave policy/service rules/CSO which allows you to forward these leaves then it is OK.
