Dear Sir,
We are private firm in Pune. We want to to make 5 days working in alternate week.
We proposed our management that we will increase our working hours to 9:00 to 6:30 which are 9:30 to 6:00 currently.
Our Management is taking objection that weekly working hours are more than 48 Hrs, which is not adhering to labor law. Management is not ready to give through out 5 days a week at this moment.
Is there any solution on this so that we can make alternate 5 days a week and still we are sticking to labor laws?

Dear All
Working hours is fixed by the labour dept of the state.It varies from office to factories.You have to go by that rules. If you have settled your working hours(48hours)by a settlement i.e. bipatite or tripartite agreement you have to make another settlement with your management keeping fixed the total weekly hours same as you were doing previously.
instead of give whole two days holidays you may make it one day week or you may make it one and a half.......
Secondly, you strictly make it 6 days a week, and frame a policy which provides the employees a benefit to take the leave for two days a week in case if he is ready to work an hour extra/ as per the schedule, that is 9:00 to 6:30 as mentioned, in this way both would be benefited and does not affect any law, but make sure that you have a written copy with the employee signature of the selected schedule......... and also mention that once they sign they can not change the schedule as they wish...... if they want to change make it once in 6 months or 3 months as per your convenience....... and request them to agree for it unanimously (so that there wont be further burden of scheduling different) giving them some 15 days time to decide upon..........
Dear Sir,
Thanks for your valuable reply.
Regarding agreement, there is no such agreement exists in factory. Also no Union exists.
Can it be made as a rule by taking everybody's consent?
dear kaustubh,
Is the factories act applicable to you. If your working hours are 9.30 to 6.30 with one hour break for lunch then total working hours are 8 per day and 48 hours per week. For 5 day working, you can issue a notice under 9-A of Industrial Disputes act and if no one objects to it, you can inform the authorities about the change and go ahead.
Management is not ready to give it for every week since it is manufacturing company. Management is saying at the most they can think of alternate week. this is the only reason.
Mr. Kaustubh
