This type of leave is called as Sandwich leaves. As per shops & commercial establishment act if any employee is availing leave before & after holiday then company can treat it as 3 days leave. IE as 15th Aug is National Holiday (Govt Declared Holiday) and 14th & 16th if you avail leave then it can be treated as 3 days leave
But in few companies as employee benefit they will consider it as only 2 days leave. If at all you have the leave policy you can follow else ask your management and proceed
It changes from company to company

Hope you guys are all well. I have some question on various leave issues. If any employee of Industry take 2 days leave (1 is before weekly holy day / Govt holy day and another is after holy day) than It should be count 3 days casual leave or 2 days casual leave? Secondly, if any one have 12 days annual leave & 8 days casual leave in-hand meanwhile he wants to take 1 day leave after weekly holiday than is it right to deduct 1 day leave from his annual leave? If not, Why? Thirdly, In a accounting year (July - June or Jan - Dec) 10 casual leave accepted. But is their any provision that, 10 days leave for 12 Months (As per labour law - 240 working days = 1 year) So, Per month casual leave is 0.83 day. if any worker / employee wants to take 3 days casual leave in the 2nd month of a accounting year. In this scenario, is it possible to consider him 3 days leave? Also, In this regards my comments is - He works only 1 month, so he is eligible for only 0.83 days leave, How can I approve 3 days casual leave? On the other hand, Where 10 days CL due unavailed so, its doesnt matter to approve 3 days leave.
So, I need yours concrete guidelines, please.
With kind regards,

In response to query, What are the leave types available in your company. If there are CL and EL/PL. The the employee can avail two CLs before and after Holiday/Sunday. only two leaves will be calculated. Festival/National/Public Holiday/Sunday will not be counted as Leave. If it falls intervening EL.. then the holiday will be treated as EL only. Again it will be depend on your company leave policy. If there are no Leave rules till now, you can follow this. I think I answered your query. If you have still confusion, Please le me know at / 9902889283.

National Holiday cannot be a Restricted Holiday to any establishment. The festival Holidays can be restricted subject to agreement with the workers union. List of hoilidays are to be prepared and displayed on prominent place of the Company/establishment.
Now prefixing and suffixing of the holidays or weekly day of rest. In this case, only Earned Leave so called as Privilege Leave can be prefixed and suffixed to the holidays. The intermittent holidays are exempted from the leave period. I repeat only in case of EL/PL. In case of CL/SL either can prefix or suffix to the holiday but not both. In case of sickness the intermittent leave or weekly holiday shall count in the leave period.

Its always advised to have a clear cut leave policy in the organizations to avoid such confusions. The statutory Acts are not very specific about suffix/prefix or considering intervening holidays as leave. Acts have specified how and what is the eligibility. The leave structure and policy of the company depending on the various applicable Acts as base and making a employee friendly and employer benefited lies on the management. To cheat benevolent employees, the management may make such irrational policies. On the other side to control the absenteeism level also.

National Holiday cannot be treated as Restricted Holiday, It is against the norms and policy of the Govt of India.
In the instant case an intervening National holiday of Independence day shall not be counted as leave, it being the National Holiday. However,an intervening holiday/weekly day of rest is not counted as leave if it is Casual leave but will be counted in any other type of leave.

as per the company where i work in we have entitled PL, Cl, Sl, CO (comp off, is entitled to take a leave if he/she work during weekends & other holidays) and also the company grants 7 days marriage leave, if incase somebody has taken 20days leaves which include weekends as well, so kindly tell me how to adjust the leaves taken, can i adjust with the above leaves as mention above and also do we include the weekends holidays for 20days leaves.
eg, 20days leaves taken
