Respected Seniors, Legally in Maharashtra what should be the period of leaves applicable for the Covid 19 affected Employee? Please suggest.

I don't think there is no legally mandated leave period for Covid 19. The period of absence of the employee due to covid may be treated a sick leave and for sick leave beyond three days employee has to produce evidence in support ie medical certificate. The same may be followed for Covid employees a medical certificate fitness to resume work and a negative RT PCR report may be insisted on the employee reporting to work. The number of days Covid disease lasts in a person varies from person to person

As per the guidelines issued by the Maharashtra Govt, 17 days quarantine period is prescribed for people testing COVID 19 positive. Earlier this period was for 14 days. Although government has not mandated to give leave to employee during the quarantine period, but there are very few organizations which have taken decisions to sanction Covid 19 special leave to their employees either full pay or 50% for the quarantine period. Some other others have decided to adjust against sick leave of employee.

Dear madam,

It is up to you to grant special Covid leave for the prescribed quarantine period or adjust the absence against his sick/ privilege leave. There is no mandate to treat it as special leave over and above his current leave entitlement.
