Hi all,
My company's leave policy states the a permanent employee can have 24 days of previlage leave - this can be accrued also.
this is in addition to the casual leave and sick leave quota.
What does your company say in terms of previlage leave? what does it mean to you?
Is my company being too good to employees?
Please give me your inputs.
Sneha
Hello Sneha:
Well, it is difficult for a third party to comment on your company's approach towards the employees in case of leaves.
No. of leaves being offered to the staff depends on various factors like, statutory compliance, nature of work, working hours, whether the staff works 5 or 6 or even 7 days a week (sometimes). So your 24 days of leave may include a compensatory off too. So, I suggest you to study all the parametres and then think about it.
Best wishes,
Babita
HI EVERY ONE I AM ANJU WORKING AS HR ASSISTANT IN ASIAPOWER OVERSEAS. I WANT TO KNOW FROM WHERE I CAN GET GOOD STUFF 4 HR RELETED STUDY IN DELHI.
Companies consider that leave is not a right but a privilege granted to meet social and personal needs of the employees. As per Delhi Shop & Establishment Act, all establishments in Delhi have to give a minimum of 12 CL, 15 PL. These figures may vary from state to state. It is at company's discretion whether to give more leaves or not. So in my view its good that your company is giving 24 privilege leaves. Most of the MNCs follow such practice regarding leaves. Moreover, productivity doesn't depend on how long you work. It depends on how efficeiently you work.

Hi Alin,
I was wondering why you have this doubt that you are being too good to your employees.
What you have described is normal in the banking sector in India. And considering that they get nearly all public holidays, its frightening when you count the actual working days. But they dont seem to be the worse for wear - as far as organization performance goes. Some of them get "AAA" ratings and do quite well.
As Abhishek mentioned, leave is a privilege. Do you have cases of misuse? Those would have to be dealt with on a case to case basis. I overall agree with Abhisheks comments.
What is the reason fo your doubt?
Regards
Ryan
Dear Abhishek,
Its true that productivity depends on efficiency.
but in some cases, being present in the office becomes important. we are a software company, and employees work closely with clients and there are always one thing or the that the client wants to talk to them about, long absences are a problem.
since the employees know that they have leave, they tend to use them even if they dont strictly need to.
I just want to know if your company also has the provision of 24 days of previlage leave?
btw, our company is in tamilnadu
Thanks
Sneha
Dear Ryan,
The reason I had this doubt is because of the hitches that we have as a mid size organization when employees take off long holidays. it does not affect their individual performances though.
i understand that they are allowed to take such holidays according to their leavce policy. All i wanted to know was, does ur company give 24 previlage holidays per employee?
Thanks
Sneha
Hi Sneha,
Actually, my organization gives 30 days PL per annum for all employees. :D
So, if productivity is not affected, then its no problem. To handle customer queries in their absence, ensure that your process documentation is upto the mark and current. Also ensure that current status is handed over to colleague and boss prior to the employee proceeding on leave.
All the best.
Regards
Ryan
wow! ha ha ok.. then i guess we arent as good to our employees as you are to your employees :) the PL can be carried for a maximum of 3 years, right? Thanks for the input Ryan Sneha
Hey Sneha,
please remember that giving them a leave entitlement of x days and sanctioning (allowing) them to avail the leave are 2 different things.
:lol: :wink: Would you like to revise your definition of "being good to employees"?
By the way, this is also a complaint in quite a few organizations that work pressure is such that they are unable to avail leave (part or all of it), and hence a policy of leave encashment was born.
I am not aware of such limits for carrying forward of PL. As far as I understand, carrying forward one's leave balance is an internal company policy, which can vary from organization to organization.
All the best! and you're welcome.
Ryan
:lol: ya, i guess we might redefine "being good"
in our company's policy, the PL can be carried over for a maximum of 3 years. it expires after 3 years, no encashing.
as you said, it seems to be a matter of internal policy and does not seem to be hard and fast legally.
