Hello, I have recently joined as Asst HR manager in a 24*7 pathology laboratory which comes under Bombay shops & establishment. The employees here have only two weekly off i.e. Sunday and for the other two weekly off payment is given and also no festive off.

Now I need to streamline all the HR process n policies. So first I need to give them the salary slips. Can anyone tell me if I can include the two Sunday payment in the salary slips? Is it legally advisable?

dear member

it is not advised to show the two Sunday payment (weekly off) in the salary slip of the employee.cause according to the weekly holidays act 1942 every shop,restaurant,and theaters has to grant a weekly holiday to the employee work in the respective establishment.

on the other hand if in case, employee issue arise for any reason and employee apply legal recourse against you it may be a problem.

You need to change your manpower allocation. Each employee needs to get a weekly off. Some may have it on Sunday, some of other days of the week. But you can't deny them weekly off or make them work (whether or not you pay extra wages is immaterial).

So you can stagger the weekly off
But you need to give it to everyone

1. Please correct me on the facts if I am wrong. I presume that these employees are employed on monthly salary?
2. If they are on monthly salary, exclusion or inclusion of Sunday/week off does not arise.
3. For the working on week of days, are you paying them over time wages or single one day wage?
4. You can show the payment of week of as OT wages.
