saswatabanerjeePlease provide the details of the type of organisation and the place where the employee was working. the regulations differ from state to state.
You need to check the Standing Orders as well as the applicable laws (Shop & Establishment / Factory Act) for the rule. In most cases, it is an unalienable right to encashed earned leave, so what your HR Handbook says is irrelevant.

Suresh RathiStanding order has to be certified by lab dept and no clause as stated by you will stand test of law.Kindly recheck if your standing orders are are certified
EL/PL is to be paid irrespective of reasons for termination
From India, Delhi
Whatever be an industrial establishment and the nomenclature of the leave of accruing nature linked with the attendance of an employee and bestowed with the privilege of accumulation to a certain extent, certainly there would be a statutory provision for its encashment as a terminal benefit notwithstanding the nature of termination of employment. Such an unqualified statutory benefit of employment cannot be taken away by any other means. Any such rule inconsistent with such a statutory provision is null and void. Would you deny salary or wages for the days worked upto the date of dismissal?
Therefore, the nature of termination of employment has no correlation to the payment of unavailed EL/PL at the leave credit of the ousted employee.

prashant.deshpandeYes, I am very much agree with contributions made by learned members and to be specific by Sir Umakanthan M
Dear Member, Any decision, policy, act of an organisation if contrary to the prevailing statute will be null and void and the same can get challenge in the court of law. You as an organisation should refrain yourself from such practices which may harm to overall organisational image and reputation. Suggest to go through the Act carefully and act in line with that. Because of such practices many more organisations have faced honourable court's verdicts which proved against Factories/Establishments.
