Generally, its observed that most of the employers either ask their employees to compensate on Sunday or any other Holiday. Or they adjust the same in CL. Can Employers take such actions ?

Hello,
As per the IT and ITES policy 2003, companies that fall under public utility services and Essential Services and those in IT Parks are allowed to work 24/7/365. So does this notification exempt those.? Can anyone comment if employees of such organizations come and work if they want or should it be a paid leave for all.

Dear All / Seniors
I am having one question. Whether this paid holiday is applicable to contract workers also. I mean, being a holiday we are not deploying the contract workers on that day. How we pay to them in lieu of paid holiday ?
