Hospitalization Leave - Update 1 (Replies)


Hi Fellow HR colleagues,

One of our employees who was on a fixed term contract and who had been intimated of their last date of service on cessation of this fixed term contract met with an accident and was given hospitalization leave from just a few days before their last date of service extending well beyond into the new year.

Would like to seek your feedback on the responsibility of the Employer in such a situation, considering that the employee's services have ceased on the last date of previous year.





It is not necessary to extend his paid hospitalization leave beyond the agreed last day of service and since it is a fixed term contract.




Logically the responsibility of a company is up to the contract period only. However, if it is just a minor accident and the company has intention to continue another new term service, then company may consider to share half of the hospitalization benefits which subject to mutual agreement.
