Leave for workers to cast ballot

Mar 16, 2011 11:20:57 AM - itnnews.lk

The Labour Ministry has clarified the leave that should be granted for state and private sector employees enabling them to cast their ballot at the polls.

The employer should grant not less than two hours paid leave for the workers tomorrow, the polling day, which is considered as sufficient to cast the vote. Also the Labour Ministry says that an opportunity should be afforded to the worker to exercise the franchise based on the distance of the worker to the polling booth.
