Yes he can apply for earn leave.This leave can be availed on any ground .No medical certificate is reqired as per leave rules
Ashish Ovalekar (Manager Legal & Compliance) 03 September 2009
Basically all government employees are governed by their service and conduct rules, which are normally different for State and Central Government employees.
Normally for availing sick leave, there is no need of prior approval or intimation, but for leave, limitation is normally provided for availing maximum number of medical leaves at a length.
For availing earned leave, the employee would have to apply in advance, in government organisations, and hence i really doubt whether sick leave and earned leave can be availed back to back.
I would suggest, that you confirm the same from the Service rules which governs your service conditions, so that you may not be issued a memo or a show casue for violation of service rules, or your leave being converted to leave without wages.

Fitness certificate only signifies end of medical leave and is not bar on commencement of EL from next day. Please note even if you are sich upto Friday you get fitness on Saturday and join on Monday.
However opnce a leave is granted on medical grounds fitness is must irrespective of fact whether any further leave is applied or not and withut such fitness one cannot be taken on duty.
