Dear Cutinha,
Pl means previleged Leave
Cl means casual leave
Sl sickness leave.
As per factories act 1948, employer have to give leave (by what name it does not matter) .An employee can avail one leave for every twenty working days of the previous year which means 15 nos.now i am explaining how?
There are total 365 days in a year.If u deduct 52 nos of weekly off and 8 paid holidays
only 300 nos of days remaining .if we devide 300 by 20 you will get 15no which is minimum nos as per factories act
Hope all doubt r cleared.

Dear Cutinha,
Siba has clearly explained the provisions of PL (referred as Earned Leave) in Factories act.
Casual Leave (CL) and Sick Leave (SL) is as per the company policy and there are no rules for this.
If the employee is covered under ESI then he becomes eligible for Sick Leave as per the provisions laid down under the act.
Generally companies offer 7 days of Casual Leave in addition to EL. Sick leave for non - ESI employees are not provided for.

I have my doubts on this. One is eligible for PL/EL only if one works for 240 days in the previous year. So the minimum leaves that can be given becomes 240/20= 12.
Mr. Kannan, your comments on this please.

Dear Srabanti,
The provisions of the factories act states that any worker who has worked for 240 days or more in a calendar year is entitled for Earned leave at the rate of 1 day for every 20 days worked.
If the factory works for 6 days a week then as indicated by Siba the Weekly offs numbering 52 and 8 Holidays declared by the company will be the days on which the employee will not be working. So 365 days - 60 days (52 Weekly offs + 8 Holidays) = 305/20 = 15 days.
Trust the matter is clarified
