Dear members
i am new to this site. I want your help if any body can provide me law on weekly off. As per law being an employer we give weekly off after six days. I need ruling on this because one of my princpal employer is not understanding this . I want to show him ruling on this. Though it is easily available in labour law book but at this moment I am not having this with me.
I will be really thankful.
