From "bluecrab" : Hi,
We are a medium sized Holiday resort company based out of Bangalore South India.
We are in the process of finalizing our leave policy. As it stands, I have mentioned below a summary of the same.
21 PLs in a year
7 CLs in a year
7 SLs in a year
We allow our employees to carry forward 10 PLs each year. This is encashable either on resignation or when and employee accumulates over 45 days.
SL can be carried forward for a maximum of 14 days and is not encashable.
CL cannot be carried forward and cannot be encashed.
We had decided that holidays falling in between leave periods. for eg if leave is taken from Friday to Tuesday, Sunday will also be counted as leave and will be deducted from the employee leave balance.
Some employees have taken exception to this and argued that Sunday is a deserved holiday and should not be counted while calculating leave.
Could you please give me your inputs on this and what the labour laws say about calculating leave.
Regards
Thomas

Again the deductions what you have mentioned is correct... Advice your employees that Prefix & Suffix of a holiday, public holiday, etc would be considered as along with the holiday also...

Dear Thomas,
Leave Policy is company specific, what you have done is correct as per your company policy.
There is no act that prefix or suffis holidays are to be included or exleded.
But in some companies the holidays coming in the leave period are not considered.
Its up to you how you frame the policy
Best regards,
