Dear friends I have a simple question. If someone is absent from work for personal reasons (not health other words they are not sick) then should the leave be deducted from EL or CL or SL?
We are currently deducting from SL first even if they are not sick, then CL then only EL even for personal work. Is this the right thing? Reason being following this practice the employees EL is accumulating and can be carried over or cashed out. So this is increasing our company's cost.
As per the act what is the right thing to do? Please advice.

Normally sick leave should be availed only for being sick and should be supported by medical certificate. Earned leave is granted when the leave sought exceeds three days. On the other hand, for casual exigencies, say for one or two days, CL is allowed. While all leaves are subject to prior approval, EL will require sanctioning in advance.

Hello Rays and Madhu ,
Thanks for your contribution , But i have one question in my mind how earned will calculate . suppose if we count 20 workings and 1 earned leave ,,, but in between that if employee took some casual leave or any leave still we are going to consider 20 working day ,,, please explain me in detail ..
Thanks & Regards,

Depends on the reason for his leave though not real. If leave not granted, no leave deduction but wage deduction.

Hi Rashmi,
The 20 working days - 1 EL is irrespective of the CL credit. But again you need to follow the law of land ( Shops and Commercial Est - if you fall under that) to get to know the exact basis for calculation.
On your earlier question, you need to get in touch with the employee, and ask him to send a letter / mail reg the leave. If he doesn't respond, you need to move legally.
If he does, deduct from CL first and then EL.

For calculation of PL/EL if a employee take CL or SL and it fall under 20 Working days for considering 1 leave, you got to treat CL and SL leaves as working days as you are paying wages for such leaves sanctioned.
