In our organisation one employee was on Maternity leave. After taking maternity leave, she extended her rejoining for one month i.e May 2019 and we had not given salary for that month as she said mark it as an absent. She started working from June 2019. In her case I have following doubts-
1. Is she eligible for paid leaves from April 2019-20? or we need to calculate it from June 2019 as she was absent for one month.FYI,We are giving 21 days paid leaves to all the members in our company.
2. Is there any law or policy or rule where it is mentioned that if employee is joining after taking maternity leave and extending one more month for joining then she has to do the formalities as new joiner again because she was absent for one month. (6+1)
Please suggest, what should I do in this case, as I am not agree with the management. They are saying, she is eligible for paid leaves from June 2019 (17.5 paid leaves) and she is kind of new joinee.

Hi, 1)The employee is eligible for full leave as per your leave policy. 2) No need to do formalities as a fresher. Her emp no, PF number, ESI number(if applicable) all will continue same.
