The company follows 3 days leave policy if a leave is taken on Saturday and Monday. Suppose a employee has 2 compensatory off in the same month. If the Compensatory off is adjusted on Saturday and Monday,whether 2 days leave or 3 days leave is considered?.
Please clarify.

Hi all,
Please clarify for the below situation.
Company policy -- 3 days leave if a leave is taken on Saturday & Monday.
If an employee is on leave on Saturday & Monday and has 2 Compensatory Offs.
If 1 Compensatory Off is claimed on Saturday, what is the rule?
Will it be considered as 2 days leave including Sunday or 1 day leave on Monday
considering the employee worked on Saturday (excluding Sunday leave)
Thanking you all

Hi deepak, nothing to worry about comp-off and leave rules. If you are happy with the staff you can give both comp-off on sat and mon so no leave can be deducted. Leaves does not have any fixed rules. Purely on HR and managements discretion.

Compensatory off and leave are two different things and not the same though in both cases an employee is authorized to remain absent and thus compensatory off is outside your leave policy and therefore in my view an employee can be permitted to take compensatory off on Saturday and Monday without clubbing Sunday.

Thanx Deepakji reg. Co-Off, Clubbing Leave.
We have to frame Leave Rules keeping the interest of Co.,duties under Factories/Shops Act., interest of workers as it can affect Co. name, workers Morale & Retention. Follow Uniformly to avoid grievance. I am Ex AGM-HR&A. with 35 HR,IR& Admn. Works of 7 Mfg. Cos. I CAN provide You all Rules, Forms for SHORT & LONG LEAVE, Extra Work - Co-Off Regr. Appln.PL.Encashment Form, M.B. Rules +Claim. LWOP.
Employees try to save Leave to encash when he quit. When he takes Leave 4 urgency & return after 2 days, how to Save/adjust W/O? Today, HR is blamed for Not framing Proper Rules.

As I understand the post after your clarification, you are talking of what is called sandwich leave rule, where a Sunday is counted as a part of leave when an employee is on leave both Saturday preceding and Monday post the Sunday.
That rule is a valid standard rule followed by HR in many companies.
However, the rule is for leave taken / granted in the normal course, consisting of PL / CL / SL or even LWP.
However, in my mind, compensatory off is a different category of leave, that is granted for having worked on holidays or weekly off. Putting a sandwich can rule with this may be in the policy but unfair. There is no rule of law either supporting or disallowing the rule.
If you have more than 50 employees, then I would suggest that you ensure the rule is a part of your standing orders and clearly worded to avoid a dispute.
