According to the applicable Punjab Shops Act, 1958 as applicable to the state of Haryana we are to consider the date of joining for calculation of Earned leaves. Earned are allowed after the close of the year (April to March).

Madhu.T.KNormally earned leave will become due after 12 months of joining. However, it is okay if you credit it commonly for all the employees on 1st of January proportionate to the days worked in the preceding year by the new employees. There is no law which says that leave can be allowed only after conformation. If it is so, I am afraid, if any employer will confirm any employee?

PRABHAT RANJAN MOHANTYThe general rule of "Earned Leave" is calculated at the end of Calender Year as per the norms of the establishment or as per the state rule if not having separate leave policy or 1 day Leave per 20 working days from the date of employment.
The clause of leave narrarted in appointment contract with other conditions by the employer. So nothing can be spelled in the matter, rather the decission of the employr is final.
