Hi all, This was a question asked in an interview.
If an employee goes out of India for official work during his Diwali break, is he entitled for a leave later on? Can he ask for those holidays later?

Hello Anonymous, Yes, he/ she is allowed to claim for leaves with reference to the organization travel policy guidelines.

If employee worked in Diwali vacations where other than him enjoyed vacantions/ paid holiday then that employee compensatory off and not leaves.

Any person who works during a holiday (weekly holiday, national holiday or festival holiday) during which the office / factory is closed and he would have otherwise got a holiday, then he is entitled to a compensatory Off.
This concept of compensatory off is provided for in the Factories Act and may also be in the relevant state Shop & Establishment Acts. The standing orders, if applicable, will also have a provision for the same.
In any case, its only fair to give a compensatory off to the person for the holiday he couldn't avail.
The rule of compensatory off is that it needs to be availed within 3 days of the holiday he has worked. However, if he is not a worker but an officer, then you can always give a more flexible option of utilising it. To that extent, you may consider it as a special leave instead of compensatory off.

Thank you for the reply
does it mean that the compensatory offs and the leaves would be different.
so in this case he would get compensatory off and plus the diwali holidays?
Sorry for my confusion as am a fresher and have recently started my career.
Thank you for the cooperation.

Hi, As you are giving him compensatory off for the Diwali Holidays thus, need not to give additional off other than compensatory off.
