Dear Seniors,
My company is a 5 day working company but in these 5 days also employees are taking a lot of leaves due to which the work is never completed and mine is a very small company with very less no. of employees therefore all work depends on them,
my director has asked me to make a policy in which they work for atleast 20 days a month the issue is to complete the work however otherwise the company does not get the money, please help me as to what can be done in this case, can such kind of policy be made??

Hi Sonalo3,
Do one thing. Maintain a fixed number of leaves for an employee to be taken in a respective calender year. For example
Sick Leave 6
Casual Leave 6
Probation Leave 6
Vacation 5
Maternity 3
Bereavement 3
& Loss of pay -
Comp off -
So that it can help you out in stopping an employee, In taking more leaves than company allotted.

No but my questions is after the allotment of these leaves also if the person is taking leave then what?? and they dont fall in the leave approval category i.e. they are not confirmed.
From India, Mumbai
I suggest you to find out the reason for employee taking leave. because already your company seems to be paradise havng only 5 working days.. beyond this if employees are taking additional leaves means we have to look into this as serious issue..:( may be to some employees carrot theory may work out.. for some we hv to consider stick theory..:( before that as Mr.Santosh said pls place all the HR systems and proceedures in place so that it can be rules announced to them frm mgt side. then u can take a call based on their reaction..
All the best..

Hey if the employee is not confirmed then the employee comes under the probation category. so set some fixed probation leaves. hope this can solve the issue. Regards, Santosh

No but if their salary gets cut due to leaves they are ok with that taking leaves coz of sickness, marriages, puja and all.

yeah even that can solve the issue. good, but plan and think carefully before implementing anything. Regards, Santosh

Dear Sonal
What is your company's Staff Strength?
What is your company's Leave policy?
Are the employees taking leave beyond their eligibility?
How your company planned about the Leave on Loss of Pay?
Whether your employees are obtaining leave before proceeding on leave
What is your management's view on Absenteeism
Do you have any Discipline Policy for your company
What are the punishment you are awarding for absented employees.
If you reply to these questions then it will be easy for our members to give effective reply to your querry. Otherwise the reply will be incomplete and it is as like beating around the bush.
Wish you all the best
