Sickness Benefits
Sickness Benefit represents periodical cash payments made to an IP during the period of certified sickness occurring in a benefit period when IP requires medical treatment and attendance with abstention from work on medical grounds. Prescribed certificates are; Forms 8,9,10,11 & ESIC-Med.13. Sickness benefit is 70% of the average daily wages and is payable for 91 days during 2 consecutive benefit periods.

My question is , the workmen who is covered under ESIC, will be entitled for 7 Sick Leave provided by the company or not.

Dear Manjula,
When one employee is covered under ESIC, and whenever, he fell sick, the concerned dispensary issues him a certificate allowing him to take rest depending on the sickness. One certificate is to be handed over at his office for their information and another copy of the certificate is to be submitted to the concerned local office. After completion of his sick leave, the concerned Medical Officer will give him a fitness certificate he will get monetary benefit from the ESIC local office and for the sick period, the office HR people will mark him as under ESI Leave. Hence he is not eligible for the sick leave. This is for your kin information.

There cannot be double compensation. SL in addition to ESI sickness benefit would be double benefit and is not to be allowed. Sickness benefit provided is as follows and is ample, so there is no need of SL in addition.
SICKNESS-BENEFIT (Section 49 of the ESI Act)
Sickness Benefit is paid in cash to the insured persons to compensate their loss of wages in the event of sickness certified by an authorised medical officer. It is admissible for 91 days in an year and the cash benefit is equal to 50% of the wages.
