That is a decision that will have to be taken and now factories and businesses will be permitted to cut salaries and initiate disciplinary action against workers who don’t report back to work within a stipulated period after Covid-19 lockdown is lifted. While Gujarat, MP and UP have already loosened labour laws in favour of the businesses, other states like Karnataka are also planning similar hedges for the businesses against labour problems. However, the final decision will only be taken if the lockdown is not extended beyond May 17 of this month. It is very likely that a specific directive will be issued under the Factories Act, covering any unit employing 10 or more workers. This would apply to all workers in relevant units and include migrant workers who may have either gone back home or are preparing to leave due to uncertainty over jobs and wages.
