Dear Sir
I'm working in bpo sector. I want to know that if this is month of july of 31 days my senior told you can take only 4 weekoff within a month while there is five weekoff within a month. Like I took first weekoff on 3 july and 10 july and third weekoff on 16 july my next weekoff will be 24 july. According to roster I should take weekoff in next week on 31 july. As per policy this weekoff should be provided to me. My senoir told me. You will have to work 14 days contniously. So kindly suggest me what action should be taken as per rules and policy. Kindly reward for it.

Dear friend,
It is often said that ignorance is bliss. This is what is happening with your manager. While coming up with the quixotic proposal for working for 14 days continuously, he could have given legal justification. However, he cannot do that because under the provisions of Shops and Establishment Act, after working for six days, worker is eligible for one day weekly off.
The industries that work on all the seven days, find it difficult to given weekly off exactly on the seventh day. Hence minor adjustment of 1-2 days is made. But by and large space between two offs should be six days.
In the month of July 2018, there are five Sundays. Therefore, average worker becomes eligible for five weekly offs. This is the simple justification. One need not to have knowledge of the law.

Dear Friend,
It is well said by Mr. Dinesh Divekar that you are eligible for 5th weekly holiday of the month may. This weekly off-day is not sanctioned on mercy of your boss rather by the statute and law of the land under which your establishment is covered.
It is not understood how your boss said like this and on what strength of knowledge & information.
During the month of July where (Sunday,Monday & Tuesday) is weekly off-day will get five. Further, a person is eligible for 52 nos weekly off-day in a calnder year, one who commence job from the first day of calnder month.
You tell your boss to issue a office memo that you are not eligible for 5th weekly holiday.

Dear Colleague,
It is your legal right to have weekly off after working for six days and you cannot be deprived of it due to the ignorance of your boss about legal provisions in the Delhi Shops and Establishment Act/Rules.
You escalate this matter with higher authorities if he refuses to give you 5weekly offs in July 18.
