    Being forced to work on Sunday also

    We have an issue on working on Sundays. Our employer forcefully insists us on coming to office on Sundays too. Although he pays for it but weekly 1 holiday is needed to come over stress. Ours is an automobile organisation therefore customers do come on Sundays. Are there any rules for such thing?

    hi aspirant.
    As you have mentioned that your employer forcefully insists you on coming of office on Sunday.
    this is totally unlawful. you can complain to LABOUR office. labour office is the organization where you can complain
    to company behavior or company seniors bad behavior.
    thanking you!

    Hi Friend,
    Private company business is completely based upon serving customer and meeting the customer needs on time.As you mentioned that customers visit your organisation on Sunday, so your team members need to be present to serve the customers.
    One thing which is lacking in your organisation is shift roaster. In a company you do not need to have everyone all the time throughout week. Your manager need to plan your roaster in such a way that employee get off and not much stressed. Because stress will highly impact performance. So your team need to speak to manager politely and plan for shift roaster so that everyone can have off time to take rest or complete personal work. Good thing is your company is paying overtime for your work, if shift roaster can be organised employees will be really motivated.

    Hi!! You can deny to work on Sundays and enjoy your off on that day. You can tell your manager that you don't need that extra salary and you don't feel comfortable to work on Sundays. You can also give them proper reason regarding the issue and I hope they will understand it and provide you off on every Sunday.

    Working on Sundays is a very common procedure in the IT companies which is indeed a bad practice.

    This sort of exploitation by managers is completely unethical. if you are not interested, you can approach your manager regarding this.

    Orelse, you can ask for holiday om some other day, if you are forced to work on Sundays.

    And if you are still compelled to work on Sundays, you can try switching your company and approach to any other company.

    Hi.. I certainly dont think that there is any such law regarding working on sundays for a company.. It is solely on the discretion of your company that if they want you to work on sundays or not and as they are paying you also so i dont think they are at fault..

    But of course you should not take so much stress as it is not good for your health and health is the most important thing in life..

    So either you talk to your boss about this and tell him you dont want to work on sundays as its taking toll on your health..Hopefully he will help you..

    Otherwise you try to find another job which gives you off on Sunday and leave this one..

    Best of luck and Thank you

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health.

    Since you did not mention the name of the organisation you are working for,I cannot tell you the Rules and Policies of the orgainsation.
    You yourself need to find out and go through the rules and regulations of the organisation.

    This problem is faced by many employees.
    The only possible solution is to form a union with other employees who think the same like you do,
    and then try to convince the management regarding the same.

    Try to bring up some key points.
    Tell them that human beings are not machines.We also need some amount of rest to recover ourselves.
    Tell them that if you keep working throughout the week without any holiday,then your productivity will decrease and in a way the growth of the organisation will also be affected.

    I hope that the management will surely listens to your points and will take positive measures.
    Good Luck!

    Hi friend,
    You need to bring this point forward in front of the manager and the Top Level Management.
    Tell them that if you are not mentally and physically fresh,then you won't be able to put in 100%.

    Try to convince them about the same.
    Collect other members as well and go collectively for the same cause.

    Bye!

    Hi.. I think there certainly should be one holiday allowed by every company as such stressful conditions can adversely affect your health and thus you could get some health problems..

    I think a " Healthy mind resides in a Healthy body" thus your work performance is also affected adversely and you cant give your 100%..So its better if you find some solution to this problem and stop working on sundays..

    As your has customers coming on sunday too so either your employer should try to work the employees in rotation or increase his work staff..

    Firstly you talk to your boss regarding this and tell him that you dont want to work on sundays as its taking toll on your health and also tell him to do rotational work on sundays if possible.. I hope he will agree as you are a valuable asset to him..

    If he doesnt i think its better you change your job where the working conditions arent so stressful..

    Good luck.. Thanks

    As per the shops and commercial establishment act an employer is needed to give one day holiday in a week for the employees. But the government has exempted certain establishment in the preview of this act. SO you have to ascertain whether your company is also comes under such exemption.

    More over in your terms and conditions mentioned in the appointment letter if there is a clause is that you will be given a holiday in a week then your company has to give it to you. IF at all the management wants to make you work in Sundays then they has to obtain prior permission from the labour officer of your area. If that is not sought then your management has not right to make you work in the Sundays also.

    What you can do to prevent is that you have approach the labour office of your area and file a compliant by stating that you are being forced to work in the sunday also. If such compliant is filed then the labour labour officer will call both the employer and the employee for a discussion. After that even then your employer is making your work on sundays that then the labour officer will take action against your employer.

    Dear aspirant:an employee never work at your service place force fully.if you think you are working like that then the value of work and attention to the subject will yield bad result.so whenever you work you must not think that you are working forcefully on sunday.

    It is well known to you if your company get better market by your dedicated effort definitely you will also be a beneficiary indirectly or directly.so never think you working on holidays' forcefully,if you do work without interest then you must not work you should discourage it.

    Thank you,

    Private company business is totally based mostly upon serving client and meeting the client wants on time.As you mentioned that customers visit your organization on Sunday, thus your team members have to be compelled to be gift to serve the shoppers.
    One issue that is lacking in your organization is shift roaster. during a company you are doing not have to be compelled to have everybody all the time throughout week. Your manager have to be compelled to set up your roaster in such the way that worker get off and not a lot of stressed. as a result of stress can extremely impact performance. thus your team have to be compelled to speak to manager in a well mannered way and set up for shift roaster so everybody will have off time to require rest or complete personal work. sensible issue is your company is paying overtime for your work, if shift roaster will be union workers are very impelled.

    Since you probably did not mention the name of the organisation you're operating for,I cannot tell you the foundations and Policies of the orgainsation.
    You yourself have to be compelled to ascertain and undergo the foundations and rules of the organisation.

    This downside is Janus-faced by several workers.
    the sole doable resolution is to make a union with alternative workers World Health Organization suppose identical such as you do,
    and so attempt to persuade the management concerning identical.

    attempt to observe some key points.
    Tell them that men aren't machines.We additionally would like some quantity of rest to recover ourselves.
    Tell them that if you retain operating throughout the week with none vacation,then your productivity can decrease and during a means the expansion of the organisation also will be affected.

    Hi friend,
    Working on sunday's is not fair. After long week every employee must have week off atleast one day. It must be followed by every institution.
    If your employer insists then complain in labour office. They will take against them.

    Regards,
    BSR.

    all the best
