tilo Started The Discussion:
I wish to know if an employee resigns during probation period, is he eligible for 'Year End Bonus'
mentioned in his appointment letter CTC description. Also what other benefits can be withdrawn, during the settlement with him after he serves the notice period of probation period.
bonus is statutory obligation and you have to pay him whether it is written in appointment letter or not .
if someone has resigned and serve notice period as per appointment than why u want deduct from his benifits. you have to pay bonus ,leave encashment and his salary or any salary part of CTC that u have to pay legally .

As per the standing order act, No any notice will required for leave the services during probation period.So you can not deduct Notice pay. if you appoint any person on probation period you can not terminate him during this period except in case of theft or etc..After completion of probation period you may confirm him or terminate him or extend the probation period.
By "Year end Bonus", you mean, bonus paid at the end of the year based on profit ? Or it is Bonus payable under the Payment of Bonus Act 1965 ?
If it is under the Payment of Bonus Act 1965, the employer has to follow
the provisons of the Act; clauses in the appointment letter will not help to escape from the liability of payment of bonus.
The Payment of Bonus Act says that : -
- Every Employee who has worked for a period of 30 Days minimum & his basic is less than 10001/- is entitle for bonus.
- The minimum bonus he will get 8.33% on Bonus ceilling or which ever is less.
- The maximum bonus he will get 20% on bonus ceilling or which ever is less.
These are the prime context of Bonus Act.
