Query related to leaves

Dear All,
I have just started my career in HR in the service industry. In our industry, Mumbai Shops & Establishment Act is applicable. I have some queries regarding the leave policy as per that act. Can anybody suggest me what should I do in the below mentioned situations:
1) Can an employee encash the last year’s PL in the current year? If yes, then can these PLs be encashed at anytime during the year or in the month of January only?
2) If the employee has already encashed the PLs and he resigns after that, then will he be asked for the refund of the same?
Thanks in advance.

  • Earned leaves can be encashed by the employee in the next year, once the leaves have been carried forward to the next year. the quantum of leave to be encashed in each case is not more than 50% of the Earned Leave at credit or 30 days earned leave whichever is less.
  • If an employee is ready to get released on acceptance of his resignation, in such cases encashment is received on the date of release of such employee provided he/she serves his/her notice period, if any.
  • The trainees can encash unveiled leave with full stipend at the time of completion of their training. In calculating the period of Leave with full stipend, all holidays and off-days whether occurring during or end of the period shall be excluded.
