But in the case of CL and SL the relevant section 13 (2) of Kerala Shops and Commercial Establishments Act 1960 reads,
"Every employee in an establishment shall also be entitled during every twelve months of continuous service a)to leave with wages for a period not exceeding twelve days on the ground of any sickness incurred or accident sustained by him and b) to casual leave with wages for a period not exceeding twelve days on any reasonable ground."
So 12 days of SL and CL prescribed is not minimum but maximum in a year.
There are IT companies in Tvm which gives SL ,CL @ less than 12 in an year based on the above wording.
In addition IT employees are entitled for leaves under ESI Act and Maternity benefits Act and for holidays as per Kerala National and Festival Holidays Act.
Standing Orders Act is applicable to IT establishments in Kerala having 50 or more workmen.Till standing orders are certified for such establishments, the model standing orders of Kerala will be applicable, which prescribes 10 casual leaves.
IT companies in Tvm may contact me for further advice.
