Dear Deepika,
Employee cannot avail/claim for Sick leave as per S&E Act for their family members.
But there are different scenarios of the company now a days. As per company policy , if company have policy for their employee that they can avail Paid leave in case of ill health of their family members, then employee can get the benefit, and company can adjust his/her SL/CL/EL in that case.
