Leave Management System in Debugged Pro – The Complete Guide

What is a leave management system?

A leave management system helps in recording, managing, and tracking employees’ time-off requests. Its main objective is to handle employees’ leave requests impartially while ensuring that the employees’ absence from work doesn’t adversely impact the business.

If you still use paper forms, emails, or excel sheets to record employee leaves, you’re heading for a disaster. It can be anything from payroll processing errors, legal compliances, or employee crunch on a particular day.

Contrarily, a good leave management system provides a unified view of employee availability across your company and saves you from all these troubles. Some solutions, like RazorpayX Payroll, also synchronize employee leaves, shift timings, and holidays with payroll for automated payroll processing.

Now, before proceeding further, let’s look at the various types of leaves in India.

Types of leaves

There are various types of leaves that are either instructed by the government or willingly provided by the company.

1. Earned Leave (EL) or Privileged Leave (PL)

There are five privilege leaves per year available to employees.

2. Sick Leave (SL)

The company will provide each employee with six sick days per year. If an employee becomes ill and is unable to work, they may request these leaves.

3. Casual Leave (CL)

Six CL leaves per year are available for employees in case of unexpected circumstances or personal matters.

4. Paternity Leave (PL)

The father of a newborn baby is given five leaves per year to care for the mother and the child.

5. Marriage Leave (ML)

Each employee is entitled to five marital leaves per year.

6. Maternity Leave (ML)

The mother can start her leave before giving birth if she wants to prepare for it or take it after. In that instance, the employer won't offer the employee any type of leave, but she can rejoin the company whenever she feels better.

7. Compensatory Off

Compensatory Off: Unlimited (Authorized by the team head and management)

8. Loss Of Pay (LOP)

Employees who take leaves without any balance on their accounts will be considered absent unless they have a balance in their accounts.
