Salary eligibility during temporary disability

Dear community,

I'd like to understand in case of temporarily disability, can an employee be eligible for salary for period of 3 months.

Shall look forward to your advise.

Regards,

Harpreet

Re: Salary eligibility during temporary disability

Dear Harpreet,
 
It depends if or not:
 
1. You are an employee under the Employees Compensation Act,1923
2. The injury you sustained is due to an employment accident and whether disability is actually temporary as defined under the Act. 
If an employee, irrespective of his eligibility under the Employees Compensation Act,1923, gets injured in an accident while on duty and undergoes medical treatment for a period of three months, then logically it is the moral responsibility of the employer to pay salary for such period of absence. 

Regards,

Kamlesh
