Full & Final Payment clauses for Service Discontinuation
- If the service is terminated with/without due notice from either side, the full & final dues settlement will be done in 45-60 days after getting clearance from accounts department
- If an employee is terminated immediately from Employer’s side, his/her settlement would be done by 45-60 days. He/she does not need to serve notice period in that case. The final calculated payment and settlement letter would be provided
- If an employee resigns immediately and does not want to serve full notice period as instructed by HR, the salary/final settlement would be done in adjustment of salary for the notice period not served or in cases legal action can be taken from company’s side depending on the severity of the situation/ assigned roles & responsibilities. Example – Person A resigns on 15th day of Jan and does not serve notice period of 30 days or as instructed by HR, in that case A would not be eligible to get 15 days salary. If A serves a notice period of 20 days instead of instructed 30 days, A would get (15+20-10)=25 days salary. If A serves full notice period of 30 days, A will get full salary [Full Jan + Till 14th Feb as per above example, 15+30=45 days salary] and settlement as per calculation.
- Full & final payment will be done in A/C Payee cheque after signing settlement letter & exit policy documents or as instructed by the management/HR at the time of exit interview.
- Management holds the right of deciding about final payment and settlement on case to case basis depending on the employee’s code of conduct, conflict of interest , performance, exit interview and few other internal evaluation factors as per company policies.
- PL & CL adjustment is not applicable in notice period.
- Definitions of PL & CL are not same. Prior official intimation through email is required for taking PL.
- In exceptional cases management may approve conversion of CL to PL but that is not a general rule.
- Medical leave is treated as Casual Leave (CL) unless requested to adjust with (Privilege Leave) PL – Management may consider this exceptionally, not as a rule, if given supporting documents with official request to adjust Medical Leave with PL.
- No perks, incentive, bonus , gratuity or other benefits except PL encashment will be applicable in case of termination /resignation. PL encashment is subject to the standard industry practices and as per available previous PL balance/adjustment of the employee. Advance yearly PL encashment is not applicable in case of termination or resignation.
Please be very clear that we give you flexibility in office timing, special leave, bonus, incentive & other benefits considering your punctuality, dedication, involvement, performance, commitment, productivity, client satisfaction, business growth etc. This is completely on management to decide. These are applicable for all, not exception.
1. Our office timing is 10.30 AM – 7.30 PM (9 hours a day including lunch break)
2. 16 minutes late from reporting time is one late mark
3. 6 late marks count to one day leave
4. There’s no paid work from home
5. If one is allowed by management to work from home with prior permission, he/she is eligible for half day salary provided he/she validates work with end of day report
6. There are 2 Casual Leaves one can avail in 4 months, overall 6 in a year (ex. Apr-Jul – 2 CL, Aug-Nov – 2 CL, Dec-Mar – 2 CL)

Few examples of CL/PL calculation below:

b) “B” takes leave on Monday & Tuesday after official holiday/s (like after Sunday or Sat+Sunday both days official off).. 2 days leave will be counted..not 4 as the leave is not stretched
c) “C” takes leave from Monday after official Sat+Sunday off and he joins next week Monday – 7 days leave will be counted, but in same case if he takes leave on previous Friday before official Sat+Sunday off – 10 days leave will be counted
d) “D” takes leave from Thursday, Friday is a national/regional holiday, Saturday & Sunday weekend off and he joins on Wednesday – 6 days leave will be counted
e) “E: takes leave from Wednesday, Thursday & Friday are holidays, Saturday working, Sunday official off day, he continues leave next week also where Wednesday is a holiday and joins on Monday – 12 days leave will be counted
11. One becomes eligible for leaves & other company benefits after confirmation of employment. These benefits are not available for trainees or those who are in probation period
12. Salary is mostly processed between 17th-20th of month. In case of delay it’s informed in advance
Other policies exist as before (mentioned on your appointment letter)
13. One confirmed employee gets 6 CL per FY, i.e. 2 CL per 1/3rd of the year.
