Hi Folks: Our employees are working from home during this lock down. May 1st is the labour day is also falls in between.
Now is employer liable to pay double pay / additional leave if they work from on May 1st. Your suggestion and inputs are appreciated.

Dear David,
The question of grant of alternative holiday or payment of double wages would arise only when the employee is asked by the employer to work on a national or festival holiday fixed. Work from home on any day including the current lock down spell is no doubt a working day only. If that particular day is a national or festival holiday and the employer asks to work from home on such day, the provisions relating to double wages or alternative holiday would certainly apply irrespective of the place of work on that day is the premises of the establishment or elsewhere.

Dear David,
You see the rule of your state deals with NH & FH, act accordingly. The question of grant of alternative holiday or payment of double wages would arise only when the employee is asked by the employer to work on a national or festival holiday.
You need to pay as per the rule of state, if on day of FH/NH the employee has performed his duty. If, it is work from home applies to the employee in the current lock down treated as on duty.
