    Can I request for more paid leaves?

    Our company sanctions only 15 days of paid leaves and I have used them all but I am in a middle of a family crises. I need more leaves and I am hoping to appeal to the good nature of my manager to sanction me more paid leaves. Is a manager authorized to do that?

    Hi friend

    I think most of the companies dont give any extra leaves without loss of pay. But of course the leniency in such kind of situations as yours varies from company to company. So you need not worry much and try your best to get your leave sanctioned. Yes your manager certainly has the power to give you extra leaves but he may have to consult the higher authorities for the same. As your reason for the extra leave is very genuine so you should not be afraid. Go to your manager and confidently talk to him. I am sure he will atleast give a thought to your request.

    What you can do is that go to your manager's office soon and tell him what your problem is. Tell him that you are in the middle of family crisis and that you want a certain no. of leaves sanctioned. Tell him that you have already used your 15 days of paid leaves provided by the company. But now due to some very serious family situation, you really need a leave . You dont want to lose your salary so you request him to please sanction you some extra leaves. I am sure your manager will certainly entertain you and do whatever is posible in his power. He may also consult other members of the management and then get your leaves sanctioned.

    I hope your family crisis ends soon and you get your leaves sanctioned. Good luck friend and God Bless

    Each Company allows a number of paid leaves each year.
    In your case since you have exhausted all your leaves.

    You have two option, you can request you Manager to sanction your more leaves to you.
    If he agrees, than it is fine.
    Otherwise you can ask for leave without pay.

    Normally in companies only senior Managers have the authrity to sanction more paid leaves than the alloted one.

    Dear Aspirant,

    The leave policy differs from company to company.In general there are 33 days of earn leave for a calender year if you have worked continuously for 365 days after completion of your probation period.Out of these 33 days,you can surrender 15 days for which you will be paid leave salary on the basis of your basic pay & dearness allowance.

    Secondly you can have 12 days casual leave during a calender year which you can avail maximum 10 days at a time,including your weekly off day & any other govt.declared national holiday.

    Thirdly there is provision of medical leave.

    You have been for15 days paid leave.It means you were on earn leave which can be extended up to a period of 180 days if you have it in your credit.So enquire of your manager HR & proceed further accordingly.

    Thanks.

    Ashok

    Dear Friend!

    As you already know that you are working in a company and you have to fallow the company rules and regulations. And its your problem and you have to handle that. Company will never allow for extra leave for any purpose. If you take extra leave then you will loose your payment in this case. Your company's HR and manage have to authority to provide leave for you but its not right for company purpose. So please don't put expectation from company's seniors such kind of facilities. Because if they provide you leave other employees can also put proposal for such kind of issues.

    3)Medical Leave

    4)paid leave

    5)Unpaid leave

    any company provides the total 22 leaves throughout the year

    so we need to the follow the company rules and guidelines

    company will never allow for extra leaves for any purpose

    if you take extra leave then you can lose you salary

    you company Hr and manager have the authority to provide leaves to you

    if you have any extra leaves convence them
