I am working with Pvt ltd IT based company, having 50+ employees.
In my company there is no as such formatted policy for leave and absent-ism.
In our offer letters and appointment letter they have mentioned, that you are allow to take one day of leave in month, that will be paid. Employees want me to change this. Can you lease suggest me the exact leave format or policy i should introduce..
I am not sure about how many leaves and all a person can take, or how many sick leaves, casual leaves an employee can take...
Kindly guide me for the same.
Looking for your valuable reply..
Thanking you & regards.

Dear Manjiri,
Look into the shop and establishment act that is applicable to your company.
In my opinion, it should be Bombay shops and establishment act.
You will have minimum no. of days of statutory leave mentioned in that.
You can not give anything lower than what is mentioned in applicable shop and establishment act, but your are free to give anything which exceed that mentioned number of days.

Hi Manjiri,
as its a small company, you and your Management can decide on no of leaves to be given in total. Its ok if you do not bifurcate the leaves in Sick and Casual.
You can allot 1.75 leaves per month, i.e 21 leaves in a year, Employees can take leaves once they have enough leave balance in their leave account.
You can speak to management and can change from 1.75 to 2 leaves per month, depending upon their discretion.
Lemme know if any thing else required.

Dear Sir, Company strength is 50 to 55 employees. So please guide me on that basis.

Hi Manjiri, It doesn’t matters on how many employees you have in your company, Policy can be easily implemented when the strength is less.

Dear Manjiri,
Please check that whether your unit is coming under which act. All the acts as far as leave policies are concerned or similar. But overall, you have to pay 15 days P.L. subject to completion of 240 working days in a calendar year and pro-rate if the employees joins in middle subject to completion of 2/3rd of his attendance. For computation of leave the procedures are explained in the Act.
Over and above this, your company is free to grant CL and SL . This will be based on calendar years irrespective any employee. Normally 7 to 8 casual leave and 12 days Sick leave are being permitted in a established organizations. This is a policy matter can be decided by framing a standard employment Rules of your company and get it approved by the Management and follow it.
