Hi Everyone,
As a Top Manager or Executive in a foreign company, how many times can you grant such a person for a Home Leave? Three times per year? Under which leave type will this be approved?

Hi Vishkrish,
The amount of leave should be stated in the Contract of Employment or Offer of Employment or Letter of appointment, therefore, you need to refer to the relevant document that was issued to the employee.
If an amount of Home Leave is stipulated then that is the approval required.
If Home Leave is not stipulated then the home leave is part of the Annual Leave.
I hope the above helps.

I work for a company where we employ expatriates in about 22 countries. When an expatriate is employed in soft locations such as India Indonesia, Thailand, Turkey and the like, we offer them leave of 30 days per year, but we pay for their official travel to their hometown once in 2 years. The tickets are provided for them and their family members.It is up to them to plan their leave and decide on how many days they want to take. The unavailed leave can be encashed. In case they desire to go more frequently, they are welcome to do so at their own cost and within the entitlement of their leave. Apart from that we provide for 7 days of Sick Leave and 6 days of casual leave. In case the employee is on single status then we provide for ticket every year.

We also have hard locations such as Nigeria. Here we allow them 26 days of leave after every 91 days of working if they are on bachelor status. In case they are on family status, then we provide for 31 days of leave after every 5 months.

In countries such as Netherlands, USA, Denmark, Mexico etc, we provide them with 21 days of vacation leave per year and provide for one ticket a year to them and their family members. Normally employees there desire to encash the ticket and travel maybe once in two years or more.

In France, we have an oil well and since the exploration is off shore, we provide for leave of 30 days for every 30 days worked and provide them ticket once in every two months.

In all locations, we allow the encashment of the value of the ticket in case they do not go on leave.

Hope this information is useful.

Usually in case of foreign nationals the terms of leave and ticket fare per year is part of the employment contract. Depending upon the type of industry and nature of work, you should as a company policy define leave quantum. This should also consider that it is above Indian minimum leave quantum defined in laws applicable to you as also the common practice of the foreign national's home country.
Useful information on how it is handled, probably in the oil & exploration industry, has been posted by an anonymous member.

Hi Friends,
Even I work for an MNC, with our presence in SEA , UK & US. We have home leave policy in place, wherein we provide 25 total annual leaves with 12 or more sick leaves ( according to the local country laws). The employees can avail the home leaves out of their annual leave wherein we provide them the return economy class airfare to the home country for the employee and there family once a year.
If a person wants to go back to the home country for more than once can pay for themselves and go within the annual no of leaves allotted.

Hi Vishkrish,
It all depends on the accepted offer.
If there is no mention of this, then get written instruction from a Director of the company, failing that then the most senior person you can get hold of.
