Wishing everyone belated Happy Dassera,
We come under the purview of Bomaby Shops & Establishment Act , having "Head Office" in mumbai & across pan India. We have our own set of policies which includes "Leave Policy" drafted as per Bombay Shop & Establishment Act.
Now my question is for my other branches, do i have to draft leave policy as per state wise or is it ok if I follow the same policy which is drafted as per my Head Office i.e (Bombay Shops & Establishment Act)
I request all you to kindly throw some light on this issue, as my VP says the Leave should be drafted as per state wise.
Thanking you all in advance

Dear member,
As we all know that Shops & Establishment Act is a state Act & we are obliged to enforce different leave provisions according to these different state shops Acts. Leave provisions are at not uniform in all the states & therefore how we can adopt Bombay Shops & Establishment leave provision for other states. To avoid this irregularity you can frame leave policy keeping in view the highest no. of leaves under different heads to be granted under any of the respective Shops Acts.

The basic difference that would arise is with regard to the list of holidays because there are few states which make certain leaves compulsory and that has to be adhered with.
So just get in touch with the state authorities and they can provide you the details.
Hope this helps

Yes, since Shop Act is a state-wise item as well leaves. You need to draft the leave and other relevant rules as per the respective State Shop Act only

Yes your VP is correct. It differs from one state to other state there is no other way rather than reading the respective SE act of state. Then we have to tabulate the leave eligibility of each state and start comparing.
If you want to make it uniform across PAN India, then you have to choose the highest benefit extended by that state and you to formulate accordingly.

If your leave policy is more beneficial than any of the state's S&E regulations, then it will be valid otherwise you can't impose one state's S&E leave rules on any other state which is more beneficial than former one.

Dear Member,
If the casual workers are on the rolls of the Establishment/Shop then you are to give leave & holidays in accordance of the State Shops & Establishment Act applicable to you.
