hello friends and seniors,
wanted to ask you one question. we're a small to medium sized company. we're giving 16 leaves per year to our employees besides holidays and weekly offs. we're not offering any ELs in our company right now. is it possible for us to offer more leaves to those employees who have been with the company, for 5 or more years. Or does it not look appropriate? i mean our MD might not be interested in increasing the number of leaves for all employees, but he may agree if we propose that at least those who have been with the company for at least 3-5 years can be given additional leaves....
pls. suggest what can be done in this matter. waiting for your early response.

Hi Meenu
The Acts say Minimum leaves to be given to the employees, say as per the Factories Act where your company fall in, have to give minimum leaves of PL 15 or 16 as if you divide 365-52 weekly offs = 313 days divide by 20 = 15.65 days say 16 leaves. All the 16 days are given to a workman only when he perform his work for all the 313 days if not his leaves depend on the No. of days he really performed his work during the given year time.
Secondly it is to the employer discretion to given more of leaves to specific employees are not no Act will stop him from given more of leaves to his employees, the Act only objects if the employer give less than the minimum leaves specified in the Act.
Many companies are giving more of leaves to its employees basing on the designation and efficient workmen.

whenever some one ask question regarding leave he should first tell under which act company is covered .in your case whether your company is covered under shop and est act or under factories act.quantum of leave is different under different act.
in my view there should not be vaiation on the basis of length of service.

more leaves for old employees
Dear Sir,
many of the times our sr. managers ask for the special leave, shall it is apllicable for them. Some companies give 1 special leave for Manager level. Please help me out.
