Good morning to all,
I have one query on benefit of bonus under Payment of Bonus Act 1965.
As I have already gone through the threads posted earlier and understood that female employees covered under ESI are not entitled to get bonus for the period when she was on maternity leave because wages paid to her were made by ESI.
Then what about those female employees who are not covered under ESI and wages will be paid by employer for the period of maternity leave according to the HR ploicy. Is she will get bonus for that particular period.

Please note that Maternity Benefit is not Salary:
Further, under Section 2 (21) of The Payment of Bonus Act, 1965- Definition of Salary/Wages:Maternity Benefit is not included.Hence, Maternity Benefit Paid is not Eligible for Bonus.
