Chandigarh, June 12—The employees engaged by the Haryana Government under the Outsourcing Policy have a reason to cheer.

The Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, has accorded his approval to the proposal.
Disclosing this, an official spokesman said here today that the leaves would accrue from the first date of joining of the employee. The Electronics and IT Department has been advised to amend its policy accordingly.
Under the Outsourcing Policy Part-1, the state engages private agencies to deliver services. Private sector establishments are covered under the Punjab Shops and Commercial Establishments Act, 1958, where there is a provision for minimum seven paid casual leaves and seven paid sick leaves for employees.
Such agencies or establishments have been directed to strictly comply with the labour laws. These leaves would accrue from the first date of joining of the employee with the private agency or establishment, the spokesman added.
