Sometime, employees take mass casual leave in order to cause harassment to the employer. What action can be taken?

There is no doubt that an employee has a right to avail of the casual leave in accordance with the rules of the establishment concerned and normally the employer will not refuse casual leave to the employee, unless there are compelling circumstances to the contrary. But mass casual leave by the employees as a demonstration of their grievances and as a means of a collective bargaining stands on different footing and it may be taken as a refusal to work and another mode of ‘strike’ though in a milder way then what the term ‘strike’ actually connotes. Accordingly, mass casual leave by employees will be illegal and may call for disciplinary action.

With best wishes,
