We all know that it is mandatory to close offices on the day of voting. And there is a legal penalty on opening office that day. If we give OFF to Employees on the Voting Day, can we compensate it with working on some other day? Early Response would be highly appreciated

Yes you can give the compensate by working on any other day before giving the off on election day and see that the gap is not more than 3 days. May be you can work on any sunday... and give the off on Election should be brought to the notice of Inspector of Factories if applicable.

The holiday for casting votes by employees is expected to be a paid holiday. If you direct employees to work on a sunday or any other off day, it will again be a paid day though not necessarily be at double the rate of pay by interpreting it as Over time day. Therefore, there is no meaning in calling employees to compensate the day lost. Regards, Madhu.T.K
