Is giving Earned leave Mandatory as per Indian Labour Laws?
Right now in our company we have only 1 CL & 1 SL per month.
So considering this we have only 24 leaves per years for confirmed employees.
Is this right as per law ? or do we need to amend this?
Thanks & regards,
Ashvini Kumar

As per the labour laws of Tamilnadu Government, an employee of an establishment is entitled to 12 days of casual during the first 12 months of his service and after 12 months of continuous service 12 days of 'holidays with wages' i.e., earned leave. and sick leave with wages for 12 days (onthe grounds of sickness or accident. As regards wages for sick leave, the employee should obtain the benefits from ESI Corporation if he is covered by the ESI.
An employee can accumulate "holidays with wages" i.e., earned leave upto a maximum of 24 days only.

Every 20 days continuous service entitles for a days paid leave to every employee.... Regards,
According to the "Bombay Shops and Establishment Act", "every employee who has worked for not less that two hundred and forty (240)days during a year, shall be allowed leave, consecutive or otherwise, for a period of not less than twenty-one (21) days".
Any extra leave given by the employer is based on the organisation's leave policies.
Hope this helps you!!

Is there any impresimition or penality if any company is not provinding any leave to their employees>
Dear Ashwini,
It is mendatory for every organization to give PL with CL & SL. The condtion is that CL & SL you can give any employee from very first month of his joining. But for availing PL employee need to be confirmed or complete his 240 days from the joining date. The number of PL varies from state to state as per labour laws.

Is there any penalty ,If company doesnt allow leave to its employee ? What option does the employee have in such situation ?
Is there any panalty, if company doesnt provide any leave (i.e SL, CL & PL etc) to their emlpoyees. Is there any rederssal form for the same ?
Penalty provisions are also there under the Leaves related enactments which are applicable in your case.For redressal for such type of complaint you are to approach your area labour office.

Hello friends,
I would like to know whether it is mandatory for an organisation to define PL, CL, & SL for their employees? In my organization we can take 15days leave in a year and we get 10days paid leave for the hoildays.....however those 15days are not defined as to whether they are PL's, CL's or SL's. Is it mandatory for an organization to do that?
