Dear All My company having 400+ employee (including production staff) is reviewing on leave policy. The Policy is "payroll will deduct all leave (that have been taken in the month) from the salary of that month. But at year end payroll will give the money back for those leaves (for 24 days only).
The purpose of this policy is to decrease the absenteeism in the organization.

So all of my seniors are requested to please give their output in view of law aspects. And assist me whether it can be feasible or not?

thanks & regards

Hi Ravi, This might have an adverse affect in the in-flow of manpower in the organisation or increase attrition.
I would personally not prefer to work for a company following this policy. Instead why not start attendance bonus?

Hi Ravi,
This practice in principle may reduce absenteeism for few months, but in the minds of people, the respect towards the management will be lost.
Later, the employees will get smarter, since they are bound to get 24 days paid back, they will come back to square 1 .
Try working out an amicable solution (Which is always possible)
Good luck

Dear Ravi, First examine which of the Acts are applicable to your unit relating to grant & accumulation of different kinds of leaves & then see whether you are correct in doing so. Whether any of Acts allows you to accept this practice.

Hi
Leave is a right to an employee, you can not gust grab it away with your own decisions. If at all you want to implement the system you are doing now, you have to take the consent of all the employees and with unions if exist and draw out the same actions that are to be taken in a employees standing orders.
As you have employed 400 + employees, your organisation mush have a employees standing orders. As per the Employee Standing orders Act, if an organisation / establishment having a strength of employees 50 or more mush have a employees standing orders duly certified by the commission of labour. So all such
decisions must be taken and implemented with mutual agreement of employees or its unions.

Dear Ravi,

I am afraid your scheme of things will not stand scrutiny of Law or of HR Professionals and even Employees. I feel you are confusing absenteeism with availing leaves. Even in case you implement your scheme it will no way reduce absenteeism. Please remember, whenever any employee remains absent without prior intimation and valid reason for the same, he should be treated as absent and salary for that day should not be paid. Supervisors and managers generally take very lenient view and approve leaves subsequently for such absence and also complain about absenteeism encouraged by them.

What needs to be done in your organization is to define and document proper process of availing leave/s, strict implementation of the same. Controlling number of leaves will be absolutely in the hands of immediate bosses. If they do not approve any leave/s, employee will loose salary. Cases of frequent absenteeism should be dealt by HR Dept. by taking timely disciplinary and penal actions.

Thanks & Regards
