An insurance to save you from liability. Employee State Insurance or ESI is a scheme commenced by the Government of India to offer medical, monetary and other advantages to workers. ESI is managed by an autonomous authority - Employee State Insurance Corporation – which lies under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Labour and Employment. By law, any company that has more than 10 employees mandatorily need to have ESI. In some states, the number of employees is 20. Medical support to your team, will result into support to you.
Your team, remains yours.
From the very first day of employment, registered ESI members and their families are entitled to enjoy the benefits of complete medical care and insurance.
Pregnant women are entitled to maternity benefits that are payable upto twenty six weeks. This period can be extended by 30 days on medical advice. To qualify for maternity benefits, employers are required to contribute their wages for 70 days in the preceding two contributions periods.
Disabled employees can get 90% of their monthly salaries as disablement benefits.
Absence from work during illness can be taken for a maximum of 91 days per year along with 70% of the monthly wages.
