Yes.  As the employee is loosing the facility of either the or the Holiday hence need to compensate.  In case of senior level employees he /she should be allowed to avail compensatory off.

Its two types

1) for M Staff employees get the Compensatory off in any other day

2) the the Labour workers its Double payment for that date if any over time done in that day then its 4 time is the rate of normal OT rate

If any holiday comming in the Sunday or Saturday which is declaired by the company is weekly off then that holiday company must to give any other day like if this year 15th August coming on Saturdday and if Saturday is the weekly off of any company they will adjust this Holiday on any other day of festival like if the Diwali holiday is 1 day then its then 2 days

for that company have HR department to regularise this thinks

I am not able to agree.


There is no need to pay double wages.  even govt does not pay so.  There is absolutely no loss to the employee.  Matter can be differnt if he has to work on week end or public holiday.


public holiday is one event and weekend is another event.  the employee happen to enjoy both on same day.

Thus employee has not worked on such day.
