There are so many ifs and buts check and don’t be mean on 3 days

Well you are supposed to
I’m working on those days, can someone tell me if I am entitled to overtime ?

If you are salaried, you should be getting paid for those day. I know we do and we are off for the whole week.

Yes, if you are salaried, you should get paid for holidays and days you don't work.

Salaried employee are entitled to full pay for pay period during holiday season , wether or not they choose to engage the employee in active responsibilities or not.

If it's work no pay policy and it is not a holiday then I don't think you will be paid. Check it with your manager or HR. You can also take a look at your company policy.

Hello! As a salaried employee, you are entitled to get paid on those days. Have you checked on your policy?

Yes you will get paid as you are salaried.

Many organizations “shut down” for the week of Christmas and have employees use vacation days. As far as I know, this is legal in Ontario. You may also have the alternative of taking the days as unpaid.

Need an advice from you guys. I joined TCS Kolkata as a BPS employee in 2014 and currently I'm in a Finance project working as a Senior Analyst. I have always wanted to be a developer so recently I acquired the knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript and Angular. So can I apply for the same in other companies? Or they only want freshers in this segment? As my overall experience is 7+ years but will I be treated as a fresher if I apply for the same?

Hi All, I have an urgent query regarding TCS BGC process. My issue is that I have worked in X, Y and Z companies.
In X company I worked for 26months but my pf account is there for last 13months, before that my salary was very low so sometimes I got salary in hand or in pay cheque. I do have salary account statement for most of the months except 3-4 months in between my tenure. Will I face any issue for this?
Note: I do have good relationship with X company.
Please give your valuable suggestions.

RBC vs Neo financial ? For a data engineering position which company is better in terms of work- life balance and career growth .
I know benefits wise RBC is much better but can any one on the technology side tell me if RBC is on par with the industry standards in the data field and it’s not like old technology . During the interview process I got to know they use python 2 which was so surprising.

RBC - 100k with 10,500 bonus ( comes with lots of benefits like employee mortgage rates and no pro


Who are these people responding to surveys asking for full time return to office? Seems like every firm is now citing these surveys and how in office work leads to better productivity and mental health? No, spending 1 - 2 hours a day commuting, waking up earlier and sleeping early, displacing actual mental health boosting events like the gym with being stuck in traffic, and additional work that comes from being in the office does NOT boost my mental health.
