Hi Padma

As per Tamil Nadu Industrial Establishments (National and Festival Holidays) Act, 1958, May 1st is a National holiday for which the employees are entitled for holiday with pay.

Hi

I am from an International Call Centre.

Here we do not give indian holidays, we give employees US holidays...

So in this case is it still mandatory to give the employees, US holidays + indian holidays?

Best Regards,
Tina

Hi Dsouza,

That depends from company to company, some companies give indian holidays and some give holidays according to usa, but that also depends on the employment contract signed between an enmployee and employer, it mentions whether usa or indian holidays will be given.

dear
as per tamil nadu industrial establihment(National and Festival holidays )
act 01 may be icluded in list of holidays,which will be applicable in Tamil Nadu.As per national festival and holidays act 01 may is not national holiday and it is not compulsory to add this is list of holidays.
however national holidays are fix ie 26 jan,15 aug and 02 oct but festival holidays including 01 may is to be decided by the management with the concurrence of workers.
