Hi All,
I have a query, ours is a small outsourced media company working 5days a week, people here work very hard and many a times they work all night as the projects we get have dead lines and we have to submit it on time, for this no OT is paid nor any food reimbursements are given. Taking leave is also very tough as everything again depends on the projects scheduling. Only if there are less projects people here can take off. According to our leave policy, in a year we can only give 8 days paid leaves for festivals, as many festivals and compulsory holidays this year are falling on weekends, i have adjusted them to other festivals, just to be fair as 60% of the employees stay out of station and they would prefer to go to their home town for festivals.
What is the normal practice? Can someone please tell me if any festivals falls on weekends; can that holiday be given/adjusted to some other festival.
Seniors Please advice. We also have no comp-offs anytime, whatever situation, I want to be fair for the employees here.

Hi Anupama,
Generally, it depends on company policy. If management is willing to compensate then there is nothing wrong to adjust those leaves.
As you said there is no OT, no comp offs, then i think it's fair to adjust those leaves.
Let them feel company is also taking care for them.

Hi Anupama,
See, when we look at Employee Welfare/Satisfaction point of view, we have to adjust those leaves to other festivals, then only employees feel better and they celebrate.
As Asmitha said, employees should feel company cares about them.
As per me..its a good decision u have taken by adjusting leaves.
