As u r working with Service industry, so u will come under shops and establishement act. According to that u can give 18 PL/EL , 12 CL OR SL to your employees.
During probation , a employee is entitled to avail only CL AND SL. After confirmation he can avail PL/EL , but all his PL would be accumulated of probation period.

According to the law, only EL (earned leave) or as some people call it PL(privilage leave) is legal compulsion of any company. Rest all the leaves depend on the standing order of your company. Go through your company's standing order thoroughly and the number of leaves mentioned there is what you are entitled to. Like in my office Sick Leave is not given to employees who are availing ESI benefit. So this all depends on your standing orders.
EL is calculated as 1 day leave for every 20 days worked. This is a leave you earn after working for 20 days. A person earns it and it is accumulated. He can avail it only in the next year or working after 240 days. A trainee also earns this leave but he can not avail it during his training period. He can encash it if he resigns during this training period.

it depends on the company , as some companies call it a sandwitch leave and deduct all three day salary and some big companies consider only saturday leave as a LWP. Regards Sheeba
