Leave Credit for Non-Working Day

QUESTION

Hi HR Professionals,

May I check if there is any standard practice for staff who needs to travel on non-working day e.g. Saturday? Let's say staff departs from original country at 6.00 p.m. on Saturday, will the staff entitle to 1 day of off-in-lieu or half day or none at all?

Thank you.

The staff will be spending 6pm-12mn (6hrs) on work-related travel, therefore it is advisable to give according to their coverage under EA-Part IV:

Those covered under EA-Part IV – 1 full day leave credit/OT for non-working day.
Those not under EA-Part IV – 1 full day leave credit for non-working day.

We do not provide off-in-lieu to the employee. We instead pay for meal and transportation to the employee. If under the labour law that requires to pay overtime/premium. It is calculated by the time and hours the employee performed and pay accordingly.

It is depend on your company policy. Mine company will just give per diem from the day they travel till end of travel date. But there is no leave credit for non-working day.

For our company, no off in lieu is given because the staff is in the plane and no official work is done (example : visiting customer’s office / supplier’s factory / attending trade fairs).

If official work is performed by the staff, 1/2 day or 1 day off in lieu is given depending on the number of hours the staff has worked.

For our company practise, we do not credit leave for staff who travel on non-working day.
It is deemed as transit purpose, not working purpose. Unless there is actual working condition involve on that day, e.g. Meeting at destination after arrival.
