Hi
As per statutory laws you shall consider even Sunday as leave. But once again the company policies should be defined clearly. Few organisations won't consider sunday as leave but few will consider.

See if employee is absent on Saturday and Monday , then Sunday is consider as paid leave
but if employee takes leave on Saturday and join back to work on Monday, then Sunday is not considered as paid leave
AND about the festival holidays:
for Married female-taking leave one day before festival can be permitted as unpaid leave(depending upon your organization policies, no hard and fast rule)
ON THE FESTIVAL DAY THE LEAVE" HAS TO BE PROVIDED"..
BUT BEFORE AND AFTER FESTIVAL TAKING LEAVES IS NOT GRANTED. IT SHOULD BE DEDUCTED FROM SALARY. See bcoz as we know INDIA is a land of festivals and now n then we celebrate one or other festival...so in such case if organizations go for granting leaves, it would result in bad productivity.so as per my point of view ...taking leave before and after festivals, should be counted as paid leaves(exception for married women) and it should be communicated in a proper manner to the employees of organization on prior basis

Hi,
First of all please let us know which type of industry are you employed with. Again do you have a prefix and suffix rule in your leave policy? Without these information, the comments given will not help you.

The comments given by me are from the general or common leave policy of various industries - leave is for Six days worked prior to it i.e. from monday to saturday . This is for a monthly rated employee.
Now, it depends upon type of leave. If a casual leave is taken on saturday it is ok and the employee has to report for duty on Monday. By chance, if he takes a leave on Monday, then at that time it cannot be a casual leave and it can be only sick leave wherein Sunday will be excluded and not taken into account, i.e it will be paid holiday- not to be deducted from the leave balance.

In 'Leave Management', there is a concept of 'Prefix/ Suffix'. Normally, the companies permit Sundays/ Closed Holidays to be either prefixed or suffixed with leave, but not both. As an example, if an employee takes leave on Monday, Sunday can be permitted as a prefix. And if he is on leave on Saturday, Sunday can be given as suffix. In the present case, the employee has to be on leave from Saturday to Monday (3 days) since he can't have the privilege of having Sunday, both as a prefix & suffix..

But, it all depends on the 'Leave Policy' of a company. If your policy clearly states that the same Sunday/ Holiday can be taken both as a prefix & suffix with leave, no one shall be in a confusion. But you may also need to clarify that Sundays/ Holidays falling within a leave period shall be exempted while calculating the total number of days for which an employee was on leave. This may be an employee friendly policy but, in principle, it negates the definition of the continuity of leave period and is thus not encouraged by organizations.

Clarifying all these aspects with examples in a company's 'Leave Policy' is, therefore, important not only from the employee viewpoint, but also to enable 'Leave Management' by the sanctioning authority & HR.

Dear Mr. Jeevarathnam cuold i know in which law we can find that, that Sunday has to be considered as leave..
5th December 2012 From India, Bangalore

Hi Devendra As per the act If any employee takes leave on both Saturday & Monday then leave is of 3 days. But leave policy may vary based on employee friendly
5th December 2012 From India, Bangalore

As per general consideration Sunday is the rest day for the worker who worked 48 hours (6days x 8 hour per day) for the company. But if the worker willfully taking leave on Saturday and Monday frequently, you may make few corrections in your 'Agreement' based on minimum working hours per week.

If any employee takes leave on Saturday and Monday it will count three days leave and you asked if he or she takes leave before and after the festival then, we will not consider festival as leave becasue festivals are paid holidays. Hence you will count only those leave which are before and after the leave.
