Employee Leave Policy
I have Attached Leave Policy
The objective of this policy is to explain the leave entitlement and procedure for availing leave. You are eligible to the following leave benefits.
Annual / Earned Leave
Our annual vacation plan is designed to provide you with the opportunity to rest and get away from the everyday routine. You are entitled to annual leave of up to 15 working days in a calendar year. The EL will be accrued only after the completion of each year. You shall be entitled to earned leave only on confirmation of services.
Un availed earned leaves if any for the year can be carried over to the next year. However you can carry over a maximum of 10 ELs only. An employee, once entitled for Earned leave, is advised to avail at least minimum of 5 days leave per annum. In order to satisfy your preference and to meet the staffing needs of your department, you are advised to discuss your vacation plans at least two weeks in advance with your reporting manager.
Earned leave can be accumulated from year to year, up to a maximum of 60 working days at any given time. Any leaves over and above 15 can be claimed for encashment. Earned leave payment would be calculated as per the current Basic salary.
