Is Sick leave and Medical leave are same, or different. Does the Employer need to Provide Sick leave and Medical leave? Please advise !!

Dear Manochitra,
Most probably your question pertains to shops and establishments, I think. Sick leave generally means short spells of leave taken by employees on occasional and ordinary sickness like cold, stomach pain, fever etc., which require a brief medical management. It is thus different from that of medical leave which has a long duration of treatment under constant medical care and supervision. For further details, pl refer to my reply dated 22-11-2016 on the thread " How many day medical leave ".

There is no difference between sick leave and medical leave except in nomenclature. It is granted while in employment for short or long duration of sickness.

Dear Manochitra,
The sick leave and medical leave is same. You need to follow the leave rule of your establishment or Standing Order, to interprete the nomenclature.
