Most companies follow the same leave policy. I dont think there is a special rule/act that is laid down for IT company in respect of leaves.
So 1/2 day casual and 1/2 sick leave can be given for each completed month. Also 15 PL for every completed year of work

Well I am also from IT Industry and there is no difference in the leave policy of IT Industry with the other industry.

given below is the leave policy that one of the IT company follows.Hope it might be useful



In order to simplify procedures all categories of leave have been clubbed under a single paid leave umbrella.

Policy / Procedure :

The purpose of Paid Leave is to enable the Employee to have necessary rest and recuperation of energy, to spend quality time with his/her family and for some emergencies

Paid Leave is calculated on calendar basis i.e. from January to December.

An Employee will be entitled for 24 working days Paid Leave in a year.

Out of 24 days leaves credited for the year, any un-availed Paid Leave in excess of 10 days, at the end of the year will lapse automatically. In other words not more than 10 days leave will be carried forward to next year.

All Employees are required to submit a leave plan to their Development center manager and project manager in LiquidHub USA / India each quarter stating when he/she intends to take Paid Leave of 5 days or more during the quarter.

An Employee who joins the Company other than the 1st day of January, shall be entitled to earn the leave in that respective year on a pro-rata basis

Employees should submit Application for leave in the prescribed format, 7 days in advance to his/her Development center manager and inform respective project manager in LH USA unless it is an emergency. Even leave of a casual nature needs prior approval.

All leave will be sanctioned by the Development Center Manager and sent to HR for records.

Paid leave cannot be encashed for more than 7 days in any year subject to a balance of at least 15 days being available. The overall limit on encashment is 28 days.

In order that we, as employer, respect the much needed employee leisure time, compulsory paid leave is provided for. Employees must avail a continuous paid leave of minimum of seven days in a year. This can be conveniently combined with Leave Travel facility

Maternity Leave

Entitlement : 12 weeks each for maximum of 2 deliveries

Excess leave thereafter has to be applied from Paid Leave if any.

Application :

Application for maternity leave should be submitted well in advance as far as possible. Medical certificate /

Fitness certificate should be submitted at the time of resumption of duties.

Paternity Leave : Two days subject to a maximum of two such occasions in all

hi phanish
Can you tell me is it compulsory that a company should provide for leave encashment.
Because some companies i know they do not provide any kind of leave accumulation facility.The leave accumulated with you is not carried forward to the next year.
Kindly help me clear my doubt

From India, Pune
Hi Skg, It’s not compulsory that a company should provide for leave encashment.It depends upon the company’s policy. from Phanish

Hi Ramesh,
You are being a very good employer by giving 18 EL and 12 CL. I believe you will extend the same kind of numbers for the SL as well.
Normally, CL and SL is not carried forward. How ever this is not a rule. There are companies that carries forward it as well. However it is my suggestion that you do not carry forward CL ans SL. Just carry forward the EL.
and yes, Maternity leave of 12 weeks is not included in this. I dont think it is mandatory for an organisation to provide for paternity leave, though I thnk most progressive and employee friendly organisations are making provisions for these as well. This again is something that needs to be decided at the policy level
Hope this is useful

Hi Phanish n all,
([quote="Phanish"]PAID LEAVE
In order to simplify procedures all categories of leave have been clubbed under a single paid leave umbrella)
As u said ,if your are clubbing the paid leaves in one umbrella.. isnt it possible that manipulations can occur in a large scale?. For eg. If we are availing 32 paid leaves+ national holidays in a year.. what if the employee takes leave for a month or takes leaves frequently.. what if there is an emergency case and they inform us they have to go on leave for 3-4 days..(and of course we cannot tell them anything they have the right to take the availed paid leaves)
How are the leave deductions / calculation done? Do we give a limit to leave that can be taken in each month?
What are the various criteria in categorising unpaid leave?
Which will be an ideal leave policy in an IT industry?
I am an HR personnel working for an IT firm in Chennai.The work force in my organisation is 40.
do let me know your suggestions..
