Dear HR Experts,
Greetings for the Day !!!
I have recently came across with an Issue as raised by my Female Employee. That whether can we Club Earned Leave with Maternity Leave .????
Request you all to share your views on the same as soon as possible.

Yes if the female employee is having enough leave balance in her account one should be allowed to club both the leaves, so that the mother get enough time to nurture her new born
First of all examine your own Leave Policy/Rules reg.what it says about clubbing. Otherwise, EL & medical leave, LWP can be combined with maternity as it's permissible in many organisation. However CL normally not clubbed.I have not come across any Estt. not permitting this sort of clubbing of EL with ML.

In addition to maternity leave, a female employee can avail child care leave,in which her earned leave ,medical leave etc. can be included.
Yes. It is continuation of maternity due to ill health, EL can be considered as a special case.
In con continuation of your maternity leave you can very well combined incontinuation of your Maternity leave subject to availability in your leave e account. If not, on the genuine ground you can request the management to grant advance EL which can be adjusted in the next year. I fully agree with Mr.Varghese Mathew and Mr.Gurumurthy.

Dear Member,
EL & Maternity leaves etc. are considered only for eligibility condition but we are to calculate the no. of EL only on No. of actual working days during the year. Earned leaves are to be granted in the next year.
