JCM Meeting of KVS – Child Care Leave
In JCM Meeting of KVS held on 22.8.2017, the discussion and decision on the subject of Chid Care Leave to KV Staff
CHILD CARE LEAVE & Vacation Salary
The Govt has introduced “CHILD CARE LEAVE” in the pattern of Maternity leave to encourage women employees to continue with their jobs alongwith their prime duty of Child rearing since, their representation in Govt. Jobs are still meager.
No department should unnecessarily frame any overriding conditions dissuading the women employees to forgo their Jobs at their time of child rearing. In fact Maternity Leave and Child Care Leave are identical in nature and granted for the same purpose and objectives. Hence, both leaves are at par with each other. It is acceptable that no women employees should sit on Child Care Leave without prior sanction of the same but it is not proper to withhold their vacation salary on the grounds of availing Child Care Leave during the year. “There IS no such overriding condition in any other Center Govt. establishment / Departments. ” Hence, said overriding condition must be amended instantly
