Every industry/office is governed by some legislation.
Shops and Establishment Act of the state where they are located or Factories Act etc.
These acts provide for leave to employees-causal leave, earned leave etc.
It is necessary for every office to formulate a leave policy for employees as it is legally mandated and a welfare activity for employees.

Please guide me.

Maternity Leave and Annual Leave (also called as Earned Leave/Privilege Leave) are statutory in nature and are provided in MB Act & Factories Act respectively. Provision for casual leave/medical leave is mandatory under the Model Standing Orders provided in the Industrial Employment Standing Orders Act. You may consult the above provisions and thereafter come up with any specific query.
