Raghunath SabatHello Revathy,
You'll need HR policies. Let's focus on leave policy and work hours. Leave policy should cover types of leave (sick, vacation, etc.), request procedures, and approval processes. For work hours, define regular hours and break times. Ensure compliance with local labour laws. Adapt policies as your company grows.

To formulate a leave policy, you need to decide on the following points:
1) the various leave types offered to employees
2) rules and regulations governing each of the leave types
3) your weekend policy
4) public holidays for the year
Paid leave is provided to employees over and above the public holidays as per the governing statutes.
If an employee exhausts all their paid leave, an option is also provided for employees to leave without pay.
Organizations have the following types of leave apart from public holidays:
Earned leave (EL, also called privilege leave PL)
Sick leave (SL)
Casual leave (CL)
Leave without pay (LWP)
Maternity leave (ML)
Work Hour Policy:
To formulate Work Hour Policy below are the points:
Standard Work Hours: Full-time employees are expected to work 40 hours per week, typically divided into five 8-hour days.
Overtime: Overtime is authorized when necessary, compensated at 1.5 times the regular rate, and subject to reasonable limits.
Breaks and Rest Periods: Employees are entitled to scheduled breaks and meal periods in compliance with labor laws.
Attendance and Punctuality: Employees are expected to maintain regular attendance and punctuality. Tardiness and unexcused absences will be addressed.
Time Recording: Employees should accurately record their work hours through our timekeeping system or timesheets.
Flexible Work Arrangements: We offer flexible work arrangements, subject to supervisor approval and operational needs.

When creating a leave policy, it is important to consider the needs of both your employees and your business. You want to provide your employees with enough leave time to rest and recharge, but you also don't want to disrupt your business operations by having too many employees out of the office at once.
Here are some things to keep in mind when creating a leave policy:
Types of leave: There are many different types of leave, such as sick leave, vacation leave, personal leave, and bereavement leave. Decide which types of leave you will offer your employees and how much time they will be entitled to each year.
Accrual: Decide how your employees will accrue leave time. Some companies allow employees to accrue leave time on a monthly basis, while others allow them to accrue leave time on an annual basis.
Carryover: Decide whether or not employees will be able to carry over unused leave time to the next year.
Notice: Decide how much notice employees need to give before taking leave. This will help you to ensure that your business operations are not disrupted.
The standard workday in India is 8 hours. However, some companies have longer or shorter workdays. When determining the work hours for your company, it is important to consider the needs of your employees and your business.
You may also want to consider offering flexible work arrangements, such as telecommuting or compressed workweeks. This can help you to attract and retain top talent.
Here are some things to keep in mind when determining the work hours for your company:
Start and end times: Decide when the workday will start and end. You may also want to consider offering a grace period for employees who arrive late or leave early.
Breaks: Employees are entitled to a certain number of breaks during the workday. The number and length of breaks varies depending on the state in which your company is located.
Overtime: Decide how overtime will be paid. Some companies pay overtime at a rate of 1.5 times the employee's regular wage, while others pay overtime at a rate of 2 times the employee's regular wage.
Once you have created your HR policies, it is important to communicate them to your employees in a clear and concise manner. You can do this by creating a company handbook or by posting the policies on your company intranet.
Here are some additional tips for creating HR policies for your start-up company:
Keep it simple: The goal of your HR policies should be to provide guidance and support to your employees. Avoid creating overly complex policies that will be difficult for employees to understand.
Be flexible: As your company grows and changes, you may need to update your HR policies. Be prepared to make changes as needed.
Get feedback from your employees: Once you have created your HR policies, get feedback from your employees to see if there is anything that can be improved. This will help you to ensure that your policies are fair and effective.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
