LOP Meaning in HR


LOP, also known as Loss of Pay, is when an employee takes leave despite not having enough leave balance but is granted permission. In such a case, the employer can permit LOP, and no salary will be paid for that particular day. Loss of pay (LOP) is also called leave without pay.


Employees Who Avail Leave Against the Company Policy Would Also Come Under LOP.


1. Factors Considered When Marking LOP in Salary:


Length of the Employment Contract


LOP calculations are made depending on the contract of employment and company policies. Employees on an annual contract will have their yearly income considered while making LOP calculations.


Tenure of Employment


Usually, employees in probation period are not allowed LOP without a valid reason.


Additional Benefits


Full-time or permanent employees are eligible for LOP against other benefits like overtime, sick leave, bonus, etc.


Nature of Work


In most cases, some categories of employees that perform hazardous duties are not allowed to choose LOP.


2. Can LOP be Reversed?


Yes, HR is authorized to track all employee attendance and make necessary changes. If an employee has failed to apply for leave due to some technical issue or manual error, then such incorrect entries can be corrected by LOP reversal in the HRMS.
