I know the above information, we are paying Every year statutory bonus in b/w sept or oct MONTH but our management is saying instead of giving month of Oct adding to the F&F calculation itself, if employee quit.is it correct.
25 days Salary=15000/-
Leave with wages=8000/

Statutory bonus certainly forms part of the F&F Settlement. It can not be denied just because of the fact that the employee's exit happens to be in the middle of an Accounting Year unless the outgoing employee has not worked for 30 days in the year. However, the only difficulty would be the amount of bonus since the books of accounts for that particular AY are yet to be balanced. Therefore, alternatively it can be mentioned in the F&F that proportionate bonus for the service rendered upto the termination of employment of the individual would be paid later when the quantum of bonus for the AY is determined.
