Regarding child care leave, the conditions of sanctioning child care leave is reviewed and a certain change is found necessary while granting child care leave (CCL).
One of the conditions to grant child care leave was that, the child care leave may not be granted if there is any earned leave at the credit of the person who applies for child care leave. This condition is deleted and now onwards a person can avail child care leave even if she has the credit balance of earned leave.
All other conditions such as,
(1) CCL may not be granted more than 3 spells in a calendar year,
(2) CCL may not be granted for less than 15 days in a spell
(3) CCL in probation period: CCL should not ordinarily be granted during the probation period except in case of certain extreme situations where the leave sanctioning authority is fully satisfied about the need of Child Care Leave to the probationer. And such leave also should be for minimum period only,
Are remaining unchanged.
Child care leave may be granted to the mother of disabled children up to the age of 22 years of the disabled children with minimum 40% disability and the child should be dependent of the employee, but all other conditions should be satisfied.
