Please guide properly regarding the matter of showing the holidays as recommended by the state or center in th employee handbook??
If our organization is not willing to give such holidays to employees, being in the essential services like hospital, are we liable to be punished by the labor department in this regard??? please clarify...

You need to display on notice boards the list of holidays followed by your establishment. There is no mandatory requirement to include gazzette notification in the HR policy and Employee Handbook.

Not necessary to mention in HR manual but the list of holidays must be exhibited on the notice board as suggested above. The employees on essential services may be asked to come on such holidays and required to be paid additional amount as per the prescribed law of the land.

Employee handbook is not revised every year.. Gazetted holidays change every year. Employee handbook is revised only if there are changes in policies. In the handbook it is only mentioned that this organisation follows holidays declared by the government every year. As rightly pointed above, the annual gazetted holidays are displayed in notice boards and circulated through internal mail system to all employees.
