Dear all,
I have a query, as i am working in a small company in Mumbai with staff strength of 15 employees. My question is:
1) Two of our employees resides on central line and due to heavy rains, trains were not running and they couldn't come down to office on 2 specific days in this scenario, should we mark them as present or what to be done.
2) In second scenario on 2 July due to heavy rains only 2-3 employees came down to office and as others are staying far so couldn't make it to reach office .In this case how to consider. Should we mark all of them as present or else what ?
As I am new in this field and no such HR policy or rule in this company I request all members to pour in there suggestion how such situation is addressed in their respective companies.

Hi Shweta,
It is company specific. As heavy rain and flood are natural calamity which is out of human control, the period of absence can be considered as present or approved leave as the case may be. If your company work for international clients projects then employees may be advised to compensate some other day to complete the work assignment. There is no standard yardstick to follow.
Based on work flow you may recommend to your Management to consider as their absence as approved holiday

Dear Shweta,
Is the place where your company suituated is not affectd by Rain?
This depends on the employer and there is no statutory provisions stating to provide paid leave. Consider the Act of nature and the situation of your employees your company provide paid leave to all the employees on courtesy.

employer can allow paid special leaves under such situation check nearby establishments policy in support of your possibilities
