rkn61If any employee takes unauthorised leave, it shall constitute "absconding unauthorised" and management can initiate suitable disciplinary action as per CSO of your Company, in absence of which as per Model standing Orders. If he is a non- performer and is a probationer, then your job shall be easier.
Why he is absenting himself, unauthorised? Have you probed into? Did you check with him for any personal/domestic problem? All these needs to be addressed, before initiating any punitive measures
If he is availing unathorised leave on Saturday and Monday, you can deduct Sunday also.

KK!HRYou need not sanction leave when the employee seeks leave , mark as absent and deduct salary for the Saturday. When the employee has not worked the whole week, there is no entitlement for the rest day. The entitlement for a paid holiday comes when the employee works for 48 hours in the week. (See Section 51 & 52 of the Factories Act 1948). So where the employee is not fulfilling the 48 hours of work, the entitlement to a weekly holiday will not be there.

Call the employee counsel him. Find out the reason behind habitual saturday leave. If need be take a apology letter from him. Warn him that unapproved leave on Saturday will be treated as loss of pay. Still if he continue to take leave initiate disciplinary action.

JAWAHAR LAL MOONDRAWe have been facing the same problem. The employee used to go to his native place in the evening of every Thursday/Friday and returning back only on Monday to join his duties.
The weekly off (Sunday) comes after 6 days work. Therefore we started giving one weekly off only on completion of 6 days worked. Suppose the employee worked in all for say 18 days in a month. In such case he became entitled for only 3 weekly offs in place of regular 4/5 weekly off (depending upon number of Sundays in that month).
After 2 months, the employee understood the loss he was incurring and therefore resorted back to normalcy.
You may also give a fair trail for the same.
