Dear Renuka

This is a professional forum, and you are expected to act in a professional manner. Calling your company sick in professional forum that also for such a small issue is not in good taste and also is not considered professional.

Some companies declare religious holidays on the basis of the composition of work force. If there are people of certain community in large number, then their religious festival is given consideration.

This procedure is not to be termed as racist or casteist in nature, but should be seen under the light of business acumen.

There are so many cultures and castes and religions in India and if a company decides to honor every religion and caste and culture, then when will it do business.

Also as a HR person you should see the larger picture, and understand the fact that company has larger responsibility of generating revenue, service/products, not only towards it clients and customers, but also towards the society in general. The company also has the responsibility of generating employment and developing economic capacity of its work force, and this is possible only when the company is making profit, and profit comes when it runs and operates at optimal level of performance.

If your company is following all statutory compliance, then there is no need for you to complain or cry foul against your company.


Even in the Middle East, There are reduced working hours for Muslims. For non muslims, regular working hours apply. This is from the government and forwarded to employee from HR dept also. Government holidays declared for Eid only which all companies follow. However, due to work pressures, our senior management which includes muslims, they still work full hours at full capacity. so i would also suggest you be more sensitive in voicing and phrasing your concerns in public sites.
Dear Renuka Always keep in mind work is worship. If you enjoying your work than you don’t bother about holidays except in some exceptional cases. Sumit
Dear Renuka
If you worked on first May, then you should have fought for that as you have valid point to it, instead of standing up for above mentioned holiday.
Rest is your choice.
As HR person I can suggest you, for you are a HR professional, but the call and choice as to what is right and wrong or just is for you to work and act upon
true octavious,
i always believe in the phrase "work is worship"but parallely we should not neglect our family as well as
from past one year i have worked all the festivals and Saturday
now i started feeling i am completely stressed out
