Dear Shuvra,
Please find reply to your query as below :
1. Ideally you are not suppose to deduct salary or leave for the full day. Yes, you can deduct atual late coming time from the salary of the employee. Yes, you can deduct half day leave if employee is late for 4 hrs in total and full day leave if employee late for 8 hrs.
2. It is rightful to deduct salary if leaves are exhausted.
3. Now a days many company works in flexi shifts if this is not actually affecting work culture.
