Madhu.T.KThough for the establishments covered by Factories Act the sandwich rule is very clear that any holiday intervening two leave days should not be marked as leave but should be allowed as holiday only, the IT companies which have to follow the state Shops and Commercial Establishments Acts always drop in with such confusions. This is because the Act does not say what happens if a holiday comes in between two leave days. However, the common practice is that holidays in between two casual leaves shall be given as holidays and there should not be any sandwiching of holiday whereas the holiday sandwiching privilege leaves should be treated as leaves. This is applicable for sick leave and maternity leaves also.

The Model Standing orders apply where you do not have your own Standing Orders or detailed HR Policies implemented. Mostly standing orders will have details of the sandwich rule and whether it is applicable.
