Any body at customer's site or during travelling if he misses weekly off, then you need to cover this in your Travel policy. Here you need to apply fair and equitable management practice to take into account maximum concerns, difficulties faced by employees away on tour vis-a-vis of course other entitlements facilities in terms of TA/DA, L&B etc.What I mean to say that there are not so many employees traveling , number is small who are travelling or on deputation out at sites. It may be a situation, where employee after travel of 20-24 hours reaches home after 7-8 days, he can be allowed rest of 4-6 hours at home , this as an understanding with his immediate superior.
Leave POLICY / entitlement for employees should be one and in general a common for all employees if you have treated touring employees as explained above.On same logic, if an employee, at customer's end , works beyond eight hours should not be paid overtime , because this type of practice will only create difficulty from administration point of view.
