I am extremely delighted to be part of a community where I learn something new everyday and am up to date with the latest happenings in the industry. This is my first post.
We are a Book Publishing House with a small Warehouse Team in Delhi comprising majority employees on rolls and two temporary employees on daily wages. The employees on daily wages are being paid as per the daily wages listed on the Labour Commissioner, Ministry of Delhi (https://labour.delhi.gov.in/content/current-minimum-wage-rate). They are usually employed only 8 hours/day, 5 days week
Now I have two questions. There was a little extra work last week due to which we had to keep them overtime and request them to come on a Saturday/Sunday/Public Holiday
How will overtime be calculate for a daily wager working on a Saturday/Sunday/Public Holiday. Will it be twice his daily wages?
For a daily wager working more than 8 hours on any given day, will overtime be calculated as per the formula applied to regular employees:
(Basic Salary or Daily Wages/30 or 31*8) *2
What is the maximum number of overtime hours an employee on daily wages or regular employee on rolls do in a week.
Look forward to your reply
