We are working on 1st and 3rd Saturdays only ,that too for Half day. If any one is absent on Saturday, will it be considered as half day leave or full day leave
Waiting for your response.

Dear Indu,
It depends completely on your organisations decision, but ideally if working hours for Saturday is 4 hours and someone absent for the day then it will be considered as full day absent only.

Dear Indu,
It depends. Why your management have specifically chosen the first and the third Saturdays only as working days that too half a day each? Whether all the employees or a skeleton staff alone are required to work? Whether these two half working days are meant for any interaction between the field/branch staff and the head office? Whether this practice is in vogue under any collective bargaining agreement with the employees? Only the answers to such and other of questions regarding the practical and factual issues in your organization can give an appropriate response to the query raised in the thread. My personal view would be to treat any leave taken on such a half working day as a whole day's leave to ensure the achievement of the purpose of this arrangement.

I worked in an organisation which observed Saturday as only 1/2 day, but leave on the day meant full day leave i.e one day.

Even if the working hours are decided as 4 hours for an day one should not confuse it with half day working. Working hours are 4 hours means operations for the day will be active for 4 hours as decided by your management but if any one decides to take a leave it will not be compared to working hours it will be benchmarked absence for working hours in an org & will lead to full day leave.

It depends the Leave Policy of your Company. In general half day working is treated as full day working and any leave taken or absence from duty is treated as full day leave i.e. one day.

What your policy speaks over the matter or Standing order?
Whether you receive 1/2 pay or full pay for satyrday working?
Whether you count saturday working is 1/2 or full while count leave or gratuity?
Any absent on saturday to be considered as one day, if is getting full pay for that day.

Dear Colleague,
Treating one day's leave for absence of half day on Saturday, has sound logic.
Firstly, for half day working salary is paid for full day and secondly to discourage employees from taking leave on half day working on Saturdays.

Dear Colleague,
Treating full day's leave for half day's absence of half day working on Saturdays has sound logic.
First, for working half day on Saturdays, full salary is paid. Second, to discourage employees to take advantage of availing leave on Saturdays although it is made half day working .

Hi Indu,
I second Umakandan in his views. Also ideally it will be considered as full day leave. Though you work reduced hours on the mentioned Saturdays, those days are considered as one business day ethically. Still you can go ahead and speak with your management and try going extra mile, by considering leaves on Saturday as half a day. Provided you should have a good Leave Management tool. Good luck!

This should be like this :
If organisation provide salary for full day as per (Mon- Fri) than this will be count as full day absent,or else for half day.

It depends the Leave Policy of your ORGANIZATION. In general half day working is treated as full day working and any leave taken or absence from duty is treated as full day leave i.e. Absence one day.

As your organisation pay full day salary for half day work on Saturday obviously Adsense for Saturday will be treated as full day .If your organisation pay half day salary for half day working on Saturday then leave on Saturday must be treated half day

In my opinion, it should be considered as full day as the working hours for those 2 days are limited to half day. If some one comes for attending duty is considered as full day presence then not attending duty should be considered as full day absence.
However it depends on the organization and logic differs. I have worked in such organization, and rules though clarified as full day leave, still it was a practice of taking half day leave by all including top officials.
From India, Barhiya
Whatever be the policy of the organisation, the base for deciding whether a leave on a half day working should be considered as full day leave or half day leave is nothing but how you consider the day for payment of salary.Obviously, if for that half day full day salary is paid nothing will prevent you to mark absent for full day or leave for full day if any one remains leave on that half day.
