Hello All HR professionals, Can anyone explain me the difference between privilege leave and casual leave, Best Regard Anil Gupta
From India, Gurgaon
Privilege Leave (PL) ---

· Privilege leave earned during the previous year shall be credited to employees individual account on first of January of the following year.

· Employees under probation shall earn Privilege Leave during their probationary period and the same will be credited to their individual account only after completion of one year or probation period whichever is later. An employee can avail PL only after the same is credited to his account.

· PL should be availed for a minimum period of 3 days at a time, subject to a maximum of three occasions in a calendar year.

· Both prefixing and suffixing of privilege leave with off-days or holidays is allowed.

· Intervening holidays shall be treated as part of leave.

Casual Leave (CL) --- Casual Leave can be availed for a maximum period of two days in one stretch. Any un-availed leave at the end of the Calendar year shall automatically lapse. Casual Leave cannot be clubbed with any other leave category. Any National & Festival holidays or weekly holidays prefixing or suffixing or falling in between the leave applied shall not be included.

Hi Lavika Yadav, Many thanx for your quick response, My query was what is the difference between PL and CL
From India, Agra
Privilege Leave (PL) will be credited to your account at end of the year at 15 days per annum i..e.
if the employee works 20 days, 1 leave is to be given. Further this leave can be encashed at the
time of quitting the job.
Casual Leave (CL) will be provided as per the company policy which will be lapsed at the end
of the year, if the employee does not use it.
Hope you can understand the difference between both.

Hi All,
Another difference is that Earned leave is leave with wages where as Casual leave is leave with or without pay as per the provisions of company's certified standing orders..
As per the provisions of modal standing orders, it is clearly mentioned that casual leave can be either with pay or without pay. If your certified standing order does not explicitly state that casual leave need to pay with pay you need not pay.
Any difference in opinion or view may be please put forward.

As per clause 10-casual leave of model standing orders in respect of industrial establishments not being industrial establishments in coal mines, it is explained that '' A workman may be granted casual leave of absence with or without pay not exceeding 10 days in the aggregate in a calendar year.'' That means at the time of framing standig orders, you can define that casual leave can be without pay and get it cetified from Labour commissioner or appropriate legal authorities..
Hope this is clear now.

1) No. PL and CL cant be clubbed. 2) In the standing orders itself we mention the leave policy which differs from one to another. Rgds PGR
