Dear Seniors, I have an employee who is sick with some serious problem. He is on an ESIC leave for the past 2 years. Do I have to compulsorily have him on my rolls. I don't mind his getting the ESIC facilities but the problem is he is a countable person for all calculations. What are my right in this regard?

ESIC Act says
73. Employer not to dismiss or punish employee during period of sickness, etc. — (1)
No employer shall dismiss, discharge, or reduce or otherwise punish an employee during the
period the employee is in receipt of sickness benefit or maternity benefit, nor shall he, except as
provided under the regulations, dismiss, discharge or reduce or otherwise punish an employee
during the period he is in receipt of disablement benefit for temporary disablement or is under
medical treatment for sickness or is absent from work as a result of illness duly certified in
accordance with the regulations to arise out of the pregnancy or confinement rendering the
employee unfit for work
As per this I think you cannot dismiss him from duties while he is on ESIC sickness leave.

Are you sure, the employee is really sick ? Did anybody from Management visit the a matter of courtesy as well as to check on the fact ?
If you have manpower problem, hire a person of equal calibre on temporary basis.. Also, ask the employee, who is ill, whether he would like to continue..

Dear Shyam,
You can't terminate or Remove his name from your Company Muster Roll. when he is under medical leave from ESIC. Before going to remove his name from Muster Roll, please thorough Below Sections of ESIC ACT 1948.
Section 72

Section 73
Under Section 73, an employer cannot dismiss or punish an employee during the period of his certified sickness etc. Contravention of these provisions attracts penalties provided under Section 85 of the Act.

Dear all,
In case a person is availing benefit on sickness grounds, no action for termination or his abandonment can be initiated.
However, if the employee concerned seems to be availing sick leaves on factitious or manipulated grounds / manners, such case can be referred for examination from the Insurance referee of ESIC by mailing your such complaint to the RO concerned.
