As per the Shops and Establishment Act, the following is mentioned regarding leave entitlement:

(a) after every twelve months', continuous employment, to privilege leave for a total period of not less than fifteen days;

(b) in every year, to sickness or casual leave for a total period of not less than twelve days;

My queries are as follows:
1. Do we need to give leave after the completion of one year? Or we can credit but staff can avail or encash it after one year
2. Do we need to credit leave to staff on month to month basis? If so how many minimum we can credit which staff can avail.

Your inputs would be much appreciated.

The queries are answered below:
1. Going by the provisions quoted, 15 days privilege leave is to be added after every twelve months of service from the start. If you credit the leave in advance, then it has to be allowed to be availed during the 12 month period, encashment can be after the period is over. Merely crediting without the option of availing is of no value.
2. Crediting on monthly basis is cumbersome as it will involve dealing with unwieldy fractions for privilege leave, you can make it half yearly or quarterly as you may like it. CL/SL can be allowed to be credited on monthly basis.
