Dear Sir,

In my company their is no holiday for the election day. It is Pvt. Ltd. Company. In Pune election was held on 23rd of April .

on election day if some employees work from 10:00 to 4:00 ( normal working timings are 10:00 to 07:00 ) then their is no extra salary we will pay ( as per my manamement ) is their any rule ?

Kindly guide

When there are so many campaigns all around asking us to cast our vote I ever wonder why do such concerns raise instead the firms encouraging their employees to do so. Isn't it kind of a CSR for all the firms?

And for Archana, why dont all you ppl get together and put it across as a concern to your heads unitedly so that you receive some action.

And what Jiya has said is practical. Can compensate it by working on some other occassion.

There is an amendment in the Representation of People Act 1951, Sec 135-B was inserted and it states that effective 1st August 1996 " Every person employed in any business, trade, industrial undertaking or any other establishment and entitled to vote at an election to the House of People ot the Legislative Assembly of a State shall And Parliament, on the day of poll, be granted a holiday. Therefore it is mandatory on the part of the employer to grant paid holiday to employees who are entitled to vote for election.

In view of 15th Lok Sabha election, the polling day on 13.05.2009 (Wednesday) Tamil Nadu government has declared as public holiday. Employees of our institute attending duties on that day are eligible to take Compensatory Off. -  Member Since: Jun 2008
You can compensate election date holiday with off by checking whether he/she is present on off day or not.
