Dear Ameya,
What are the profiles, in which your employees are working? The policy will depend on that. Even though employment rules remain the same. However, the business development and sales will require breaks differently from your off-location technical support team. The former will have a lot of travel, hence humanly need a day off after a long tour. While, the later will work towards the deadlines for the project or escalations as defined for teh role. This will require them to be available on call, even during their holidays. In case, you have knowledge-based research teams working from home, please consider the leaves on the regular policy.
Hope this answers your query. Please share the sector your firm belongs to and the type of talent you are designing this policy for.

Ours is a knowledge driven firm. We do end to end research, particularly in the field of equity research, business reseach, valuation services and IP research. We have a few employees working from home. I would like to know what kind of leave policy can we adopt for the same. Should there be less leaves given or should we reduce the cap on the number leaves being transfered to the next year differently than our regular employees?
A well-structured Work from home policy gives the employees the right infrastructure for uninterrupted working environment . The right technology tools and training in time management and IT skills will help implement the work from home program and also help employees adapt to this new working style .
Constant monitoring and using tools like skype and trello for work management and review meetings are important and motivate the employee as well .
You must also keep in the mind the security angle of the work from home program and ensure that your data is secure and not compromised .

Hello Everyone,
Please let me know is there any law about the to give specific number of work from home options to the employees?
We are software development company and five days working. We are giving one leave per month so total 12 leaves per annum.

As per current policy, due to some medical issue, emergency, and strike one can work from home.
We don't have fixed any specific number. Its based on case to case basis. But from few days we have observed that few people are misusing this which is effecting on the work.
So I need your suggestion, what you think
1.Limited WFH per month
2. Reserve WFH options for senior people only
3. No WFH for first 1 year.
4. No WFH at all
