Hi all!

I frequently have business travel to another countries.

If the trip is less than 7 days, even if it covers saturday and sunday. No extra leave were compensated. For exp; Friday till Wednesday. 

If the trip is 7 days or more but less than 14 days. Only 1 day leave is compensated. 1 day leave for every 7 days of business travel.

Is this within the labour law?

By,
Dave.

Under the Employment Act, an employee is supposed to get one rest day per week (7 days). In the situation mentioned by you, doesn't seem to be wrong with only 1 day replacement. You can give a call to the Labour Department and discuss the officer there to get an official ruling.
