Dear friends,
i have gone thorugh the discussions made among all of you.
I believe that weekly off is applicable when an employee has worked for six days. In my openion if a emplpyee / workman is absent for six day continiously particularly monday to saturday he or she should not given sunday as weekly off. When he or she has not worked for a full week there is no logic to give him or her suanday as weekly off. If sunday is given as weekly off what will happen if he repeat this for next week.
Thanks and regards

Dear Mr. Lovlesh Sharma
no off is applicable for sunday if a workman has not worked for 6 continious days and more particular if he or she has taken leave or is absent from monday to saturday.

Dear lovlesh,
First see under which of the labour law you are required to grant weekly off day i.e. Factories Act, 1948, The minimum Wages Act, 1948, State Shops & Establishment Act etc. & then go through provision relating to grant of weekly off day under that particular Act.

Dear Ravishank,
it is not a matter of giving only sunday as weekly off or satudray and sunday both. it is question if any one has not attended the office for a week completely i.e. monday to saturday (all working days) he or she should be granted weekly off or not as he or she has not worked a single day in a particular week. if he is granted sunday as weekly off that he should be granted all four sundays as weekly off even if he has not worked for a single day in a month. i understand that weekly off is meant to give rest a emlyoee for working 5 or 6 days as applicable. but if he has taken/ used all six day than what is the fun to grant one another day as weekly off. even he has not posses any leave left with him or her.

Dear All,
No need to take everything as granted by employees. They are supposed work for the organization. In continuous leave without intimation will create many problems in the organization.
In my opinion from Monday to next Monday only the Sunday's salary would be deducting. Monday to Saturday and he comes on Monday no need to cut his weekly off

dear lovelesh
as per haryana & punjab factory act if a employee work monday for friday and saturday to monday is absent. in that case weekly off will not be given to him but if your co. is a manufacturing unit in that case you will have to made a policy. some co. using diff-2 rule. as per my co. if a workman working 4 days in a week. we will pay him weekly off. in this case saturday to manday does not matter.

Dear Lovelesh,
Your question is not complete. Your previous post and this post with some replies of other community members take the real problem totally astray.

The question should not be of weekly off, but weekly PAID off. Your question seems to relate to contractual employees or labor force. If your office or organization is closed on Sunday, would you ask the contractual employee to come to office/ organization and sit there without work to claim his/her wages, as he would not have worked continuously for six days prior to that Sunday. Since your office/ organization is closed, neither he would come to your office, nor he would be paid for that off if he has not worked for six days prior to that Sunday. But, if he has worked for 6 days prior to that Sunday, he would be entitled to a fully paid off for 7th day of Sunday without having worked. One more thing, if there is any National holiday, like Republic Day, Independence Day or Gandhi Jayanti in that week, and he has worked the other 5 days of the week, he would be entitled for the paid weekly off of Sunday, in addition to the National Holiday.

But, if your organization or factory is of a type where the work continues even on Sunday, there would be no question of an off particularly on Sunday. If the contract employee has worked for 6 days even up to Tuesday (including Sunday), he will be entitled to claim fully paid off on any day of the next week after Tuesday or another week by accumulating his days of off as per the provisions of the concerned Factories Act. Minimum Wages, Act, or the Shops and Establishment Act, as the case may be.

So, better you go through the relevant provisions of the Act and Rules applicable to your organization and State to be a perfect HR man.

Dear Lovlesh
I think not giving sunday as a weekly off to an employee who doesn't worked on saturday or monday is compelling an employee to take leaves during the week day's monday to saturday which is harmful for the company's bussiness and from work point of view.
So consider this fact that punishment is not a solution of the problem. Penal pay cut create frustrations among the employee's and they don't work diligently.

Dear Lovelesh,
Sunday Is Weekly OFF.
If an employee/Workman has not worked/Absent for six days (Monday to Saturday), still weekly off will be applicable.
Now, if he repeats this next week as well (From Monday to saturday), in that case, you can treat sunday as Absent again , if you have policy of
"Count Interviening Weekly Off".
In this scenario, he will be treated absent for 13 days.
