Hi, Total EL entitlement per year is 30. Out of 30 we need to use 50% and 50% will be carry forwarded to next year. So only 15 EL will be carry forwarded. Regards, Krinesh.

Dear Indu,
The PL/EL (Prevailage Leave and Earned Leave)is same,as per the act for every 20 days you work you will be provided with 1 day of earned leave, so in a year it is 18 days per year and it is en cash-able.The unused PL/EL can be carry forward to next year and the capping depends upon the company to company policy,this may be 30 days maximum,45 days maximum.

Dear Member,
Pl accumulation is depend on the notice period. If company given notice perod for one month then pl can be accumulated for one month because when the employee is leaving the organisation and he is not completeing notice period or company is releiving the employee immediatley whatsoever reason that time same will be adjusted.
This is totaly depend upon the policy of the company, some company is not accumulating PL for next year and balance will be encashed in the last month of year or financial year because employees are taking leave any time and the organisation is suffering their work.

Every company has different rule about it. Please refer the Leave manual of the organization.
You can refer: Shops & Establishment Act, Factories Act for further inputs in the matter.
In most of the cases, The PL (Privileged Leave) / EL (Earned leave) are linked to the length of service in the organization, and is credited to the employee after completion of one year of service.
Factories act do state that the individual should have been present of minimum of 240 days for becoming eligible for EL.

Dear All,
Pl is earned on the basis of working days. Forwarding the balance PL for the next year is totally depend on the company policy.
Some company is forwarding the pl for the next year as per their notice period while employee is leaving the organisation, if notice period is 60 day company is mataining the 60 days pl accumulation of the next year.
if anybody lwants to eave within two months so he will pay two month's salaryto the company or to work two months and take encash the balance pl.

Dear Indu
The EL / PL accumulation policy is purely depends on the company description, if company wants to give benefits to the employee, depends on the PL alloted per year

Hello Everyone,
Can anybody share, what should be the leave policies applied in startup IT company????
11th October 2017 From India, Delhi
Dear all, I just resigned from manager post in a manufacturing industry on management staff cadre.my leave credit is 32 days while resigning and 92 in jan17 and 88 in jan16. Our company says they neither consider for waiving nor encash and says only applicable for workers and not management staff sice we don't come under trade union act. Guess my company comes under factories act and shop & est act tamilnadu. Am I eligible or not.

Dear All,
Upto 3 years your Earned leaves can be carry forwarded but not your other leaves.
And at the end of 3 years your EL will lapse so as per labour law you can encash maximum 30 EL on your basic pay not on gross pay.
Yes, it's completely depend on company/employer whether he wants to adopt this policy or not But I couldn't find anywhere that based on skills(workers & management) leave encashment will also vary.
15th December 2017 From India, Delhi
More than denying leave encashment in every annual year denying it to consider in waiving off for balance notice period or pay on exit is what wounding. Moreover they claim that all is applicable for workers and not for management staff. My leave credit from 2008 till now is as of every Jan is 41,42,51,51,51,50,60.5,75.5,88.5 and 92 in 2017 Jan and 35 in Oct 2017. My gross is 54k and basic is 12k. Served 36 days without pay hence 36*2 equals 72 days leaving 18 days having unclaimed previous close to 70000 of medical and conveyance. With all this they say I have to 250 RS. My one day wage is 1802 for calculation. Do you think I should conpromise with their calculation.

What would be the standard leave policy for contractual employees in a Private limited IT company?
27th July 2018 From India
In general private limited companies do fall under respective state Shops & Establishments Act & therefore it will be better to grant different applicable leaves under that Act to your employees.
