Hi friends,
As far as I understand, we cannot club casual & sick leave together. Let me know if we can club casual & sick leave together Please let me know how we can do this ?
If we cannot club Casual & sick leave, please explain why ? I need to
convience the top management.

Dear Anita,
Leave is a privilege and shall not be claimed as a matter of right. When the exigencies of service so require, discretion to refuse or revoke leave of any description is reserved with the Competent Authority. Interpretation of rules/ procedures shall always be made in the light of policy. I hope ur query has solved.

SL and CL are meant for two distinct purpose. SL is taken because of illness and has to be justified by treatment documents for it to be qualify as SL and also if treatment cost are reimburshed by the company( if it is applicable). Usually SL is encashable at the end of fiscal year and may be carried over for a year.
CL is taken as leave as and when required but has to be pre approved by the concerned dept. a day prior to the leave. These leaves are kept so that employee can take 1 or 2 day leave casually( hence the name i guess) but with approval in case of certain short term requirements.
Leaves Policies are designed as per companies set up. I have come across many policies but have not seen clubbing of these two diff kind of leaves. I think it should not as they serve two distinct purpose.
I hope this helps you.

Dear Friends,
I also have a query on my organisation we plan to combine PL, CL & SL let me know if we provide a total of 32 leaves in a year even then do we need to distinguish them or we can simply mention as 30 leaves only. Is there any binding by Labour Law?

Dear Anita,
The concept of clubbing of CL and SL is an oft discussed issue in many organisations. As was pointed out in the other replies to your initial post, rules governing CL & SL vary according to the organisation's internal policies.
To share with you, we do not allow direct clubbing of CL & SL - however there is always a loophole - that you could apply CL for say - Thursday to Saturday & apply SL for say Monday / Tuesday. Similar loophole applies with a holiday in between. In such cases the weekly off or holiday is not counted as part of any leave.
The other issue is regarding the legal stand on leaves like CL,SL & PL. If I am not mistaken - the Factories Act is only concerned with Annual leave and its calculations and other terms. How much of CL & SL is given is left to the organisation's policies. Any views / clarifications on this ?

I have some difference of opinion in this matter. According to S&E act (Shops & Establishment act) the employee has to be given 8 Days CL & 7 Days SL. For Earned Leave 1/20 For every 20 Days worked 1 Day EL is earned.
and for Sales force which comes under Sales Promotion Act 15 CL & 10 SL has to be given. for There Earned Leave calculation has to be done 1/11 Days means for every 11 Days worked 1 Day EL is earned.
If any doubt please clarify with any other document also let us know.

As per the practice & Policies prevailing the in the industries Cl cannot clubbed with any other except compensatory off. Haffiz
The purpose of sl and cl is totally different. while sck leave is approved for illness casual leave can be taken for other reason. hence there is no issue of clubbing these 2 leaves together.
A colleague has taken leave due to ill health, can CL+EL(PL)+ Sick Leave available in his account be given to him. How many days continuous CL can be given.
