Hello CiteHR Family,

I have a questions regarding the labour day. Is it mandatory close the companies operations on May 01, 2023 ? or do we have any exceptions to run the operations.

Thank you in advance

Almost all states have separate legislation to regulate holidays in factories, plantations and shops and commercial establishments. In some state rule, May 1st is not a mandatory (national) holiday whereas in many states, 1st May is a national holiday. But in Maharashtra, I don't find any separate enactment for this other than the new Maharashtra Shops and Commercial Establishment (regulation....) Act 2017 which provides for holidays to be observed in commercial establishments. In that May 1st is National Holiday like 26th January, 15th August and 2nd October. Please check whether this Act applies to factories in Maharashtra also.

Dear K-Pandarinath,
There's no rule or law to declare holiday. If you have mention in holiday Calender for the year of 2023 (LIST OF PAID HOLIDAYS FOR THE YEAR-2023) then you can.

Suggestion - (You can discuss with your Top management for the same)
*You can declare Holiday on Labour Day (Mostly Companies will non functional)
*You can also celebrate Labour Day in your unit.

I differ from Alok. There are separate Acts to regulate holidays, like Kerala Industrial Establishment (National and Festival Holidays) Act, Tamil Nadu Industrial Establishment (National and Festival Holidays) Act, Karnataka Industrial Establishment (National and Festival Holidays) Act etc. The number of holidays under each Act differ from state to state. It is 4 National Holidays and nine festival holidays in Kerala, 5 national holidays ( in Karnataka, November 1st being state formation day is a national holiday) and 5 festival holidays in Karnataka, 4 national holidays and 5 festival holidays in Tamil Nadu and so on. Like this every state has enacted their own Acts to regulate employment of workers on holidays.

There are only 03 National holidays in India.
01. 26 January
02. 15 August
03. 02 October
because national holidays means the days which are celebrate in a common day in whole nation and these three days celebrate in whole naiona in same days. resat are the festival holidays which are depend on the locality, area and religion.

But under many states' Act pertaining to holidays, May 1st is a mandatory national holiday. Mr Gautam should first go through the Acts before commenting so authentically that there are only three national holidays. Also, please refer to the my previous comments.

May 1 is Maharashtra Day, as the State was created on this day in 1960. Every year the Government of Maharashtra issues a notification declaring 1 May to be a public holiday to be celebrated as Maharashtra Day. So, it has to be a paid holiday for employees and if any person is employed on that day for exigencies of work, then such a person has to be compensated as per law in this regard.

You can take it from the websites. Only a very few states have not declared it as national holiday but all other states have included May 1st, being international labour day, as NATIONAL HOLIDAY. Please see one by one and then come back.
