I am from an International Call Centre.
Here we do not give indian holidays, we give employees US holidays...
So in this case is it still mandatory to give the employees, US holidays + indian holidays?

Hi Dsouza,
That depends from company to company, some companies give indian holidays and some give holidays according to usa, but that also depends on the employment contract signed between an enmployee and employer, it mentions whether usa or indian holidays will be given.
