Benefits for workers and paid time off in India
Here are some of the statutory benefits and paid leave obligations to bear in mind while discussing the terms of an employment contract with a candidate in India, as well as some ways an employer of record may help your business’ benefits strategy.
Employers are required to provide 26 weeks of paid leave for the first two pregnancies of an employee, and 12 weeks of paid leave for any subsequent children, as well as for moms who are adopting or using a surrogate.
Employees who are pregnant and have worked for their company for at least 80 days in the year previous to the due date are entitled for benefits with written notification given seven weeks beforehand.
The Shops and Establishments Act regulates the “annual” or “privilege” leave that non-factory workers are entitled to, which varies from state to state but is generally at least 15 days each year.
The national Factories Act protects factory employees, who get one day off for every 20 days working (up to a maximum of 12 days off).
India has three national holidays:
Independence Day on Republic Day
the Mahatma Gandhi birthday
In addition, depending on the state where the business is situated, employers must provide five to nine festival holidays annually. Employees are entitled to double pay if they must work on a public holiday.
The Shops and Establishments Act largely governs personal and sick leave. Employee rights range from seven to twelve days, and sick leave is defined differently in each state of India.
Employees in the manufacturing industry are entitled to up to 10 days of sick leave, which is controlled by the Industrial Employment Act.
All citizens of India are entitled to free public healthcare, however the vast majority of people rely on private treatment.
We may be able to provide professionals and their families optional additional medical insurance coverage at a more affordable rate as your employer of record in India.
According to the number of workers, India’s social security system mandates employer contributions for pensions, health insurance, disability benefits, and gratuity payments. Additionally, donations from businesses, employees, and state governments help to pay for workers’ compensation.
Employee benefits in India are mostly covered by employer social expenses, but if more coverage is required, we can talk to you about possibilities like supplementary pension contributions or life insurance.
