Dear Senior
The organization I work for, the owner doesnt give any leave on any of the national holidays. Also we get only 2 sundays off in a month. The first and last sundays we are working. If there are 5 sundays in a month then we work last 2 and the 1st sunday on nxt month continuously.
Working for a pvt ltd co which is into collections
What can be done? Pls help

Dear Sapan,
What type of organization you are working in?
Secondly according to factories act and Bombay shops and establishment act, a employer has to give compulsory weekly off, but he cannot ask to work at stretch more than 10 days in case weekly off is not given, he has to give comp off.
Also in probation period upto 3 months leaves are not given, you have take only national holidays, you can put application to hr for restructuring leave policy.

Dear Sapan, The Factories Act, 1948 says that a person who work for 8 hours a day must be given his weekly off on the 7th day. The weekly off if denied, the employer can be taken to court. Most employees don't do this as this will endanger their work and wages. The employee is generally at the mercy of the employee. Many "good" organizations also abet the "crime"

Dear Sapan,
Your company is working on Illegal path. It is against Factories Act 1948.
Company must have to give one weekly off in a week. and total working hour should not exceed 48 hour in a week.
Approach to your company management. Show some legal terms infront of your management team.
Is your company paying OVERTIME to all?
What is working time in your appointment letter?
How many working days in a week/month as per appointment letter?

From India, Surat
Dear Sapan,
You know well what your company is doing is illegal. You need to talk to the senior management on behalf of all employees. If they agree then implement new policy in place duly signed, if not then don't be a part of dirty and illegal practice of the company, better search new option.
Chill HR

From India, Gurgaon
Dear Sapan,
it is clear that Company must have to give one weekly off in a week in national holidays... if an employee is working in national holidays.. the employer had to pay the salary 3 times.
for exp:- A per day wage 300/- he is worked at national holiday (i.e 15th aug) then the employer have to pay 900/- to that particular employee.

From India, Hyderabad
This is the ground reality in India. It is against the prevailing and applicable laws but is common in small organisations. Going in for legal process for relief is not advisable since it will time consuming and not worth the effort. In case you enjoy the job except for the weekly off and holidays issue then speak to the management who may pay you more salary to compensate for the additional work. My advice would be to change to a better job.
From India, Mumbai
Dear Mr. Mundra,
As most of the contributors have already given you info about the factories act which provides for weekly off, I suggest you to write to the HR seeking weekly off and off on national holiday and payment of enhanced wages for working on weekly offs and national holidays for the works done earlier along with compensation. Wait for fifteen days or so. Probably by this time your HR should have addressed the issue, if not, then send a detailed complaint to the Labour commissioner of your jurisdiction. And if the problem still exists then prefer to file a court case seeking enhanced compensation for the periods worked and enforcement of weekly and national offs.
It is preferred you take more of you fellow employees on board the issue to support your claims.

Hi Sapan ,
Seniors have already covered all basic and facts of this issue , one thing is that no employer can force you to work for more than 50 hours weekly.
and as we cannot exceed 8 hours of work daily excluding your break hours . this is illegal practice and can be dragged to court. your overtime cannot exceed more than 200 hours yearly
Standard work day 8 hours
Minimum rest while at work 30 minutes per 5 hour
Maximum overtime limit 200 hours per year
so this is not ethical and is duly illegal .
