LOP Full Form
LOP or Loss of Pay, refers to a situation where an employee takes leave without sufficient leave balance but with the employer’s approval. During LOP, the employee doesn’t receive a salary for the specific day of leave. It’s like taking unpaid leave and can affect the employee’s earnings. Employers allow LOP for unplanned time off, causing a temporary loss of salary.
Employees Who Avail Leave Against the Company Policy Would Also Come Under LOP.
Factors Considered When Marking LOP in Salary

2. Tenure of Employment: Usually, employees in probation period are not allowed LOP without a valid reason.
