How to fill the wage register for April? The salon started work on 15 April and gave payment for the entire April, so how many days worked should be shown in wage register when payment for entire April is done?
i.e. No. of Worked days should be = 15 or 26?
Since payment made for 26 days (entire April 2020 month with Thursday holidays, i.e. 30-5 =25 but since generally month is 26. Salon shows 26)
Thank You.

An employee who worked for any month in full, irrespective of whether 25,26,28,29,30 or 31 days are entitled to salary including for paid holidays & weekly off. As such they are due for a full month except for days absent or LWP. If you are maintaining 'wages register' in Form T (under the Karnataka Shops & Comml.Estts Rules, 1963 you have to mark 'present' for all the days on duty & weekly off days i.e., for April it's 30 days. Accordingly salary due is for the full month.

Wages register must be filled as per actual attendance, that is to say they must be shown on weekly off or any other holiday.
If a worker works on weekly off or holidays, it will invoke a query of overtime.
Therefore it is to be filled cautiously exactly as per the work days performed and OT column is also to be checked for any extra work done by the employee.

Attendance register should be actual basis, however at the time of wages, as the establishment has paid full without any deduction, it would be granted as special leave with wages (pandemic issue)


Thankyou for your response everyone.
So, the doubt was should the salon mention no of worked days as 15 or 25 or 26 in wages register for April in the mentioned scenario (since first 15 days was lockdown which was paid as Paid Leave). Full monthly payment was already done.

Dear colleague,
You may like to consider it appropriate to call it 'pandemic leave'.
Write 'Pan L' for a short in the wage register, as you have already paid for those days.

If I remember correct, there is no prescribed format for register or wages under the Payment of Wages Rules both under the Central and the States. So far as shops and establishments are concerned, every State Shops & Estt Act has a specific format and one has to simply fill all the columns. Weekly holidays, CL, SL, PL and National &Festival holidays are paid holidays under the S&E Acts. These days if availed have to be mentioned in the register of employment or the attendance register with corresponding entries in the leave and NFHL registers. Then why should the poster unnecessarily bother about the working days as 26 or 30 or 31? If there is any days in the month on LOP, just he has to mention the amount deducted proportionately in the deductions column of the wages register. Even extraordinary situation like Statutory Lock Down makes no difference as the purpose and entries of the register of wages indicate only the disbursement of wages and the deductions if any.
In general, without reference to the prescribed format under any Act and Rules applicable, the register of wages should invariably contain the gross wages payable for the wage period, viz, the month and the net wages paid with break up details of components like basic, D.A, HRA etc and deductions like EPF, ESI subscriptions, recovery of loans and advances, LOP etc, and the signature of the employee with date.
