Employers and Employees Should Compromise on Salary: Supreme Court

Supreme Court

On Friday, the Supreme Court made important remarks about the condition of workers and industries due to the corona virus lockdown in the country, saying that workers and industry depend on each other. Therefore, there should be no penal action on any industry.

In fact, the court gave its verdict on a number of petitions filed by several companies, including MSMEs. These petitions challenged the Home Ministry’s order to pay full salaries and payments to employees during the 54-day period of lockdown imposed to prevent the Covid-19 epidemic.

During the hearing on the matter, Justice Ashok Bhushan said that we have directed not to take any concrete action against the employers. Also the earlier orders will continue. He said that a detailed affidavit on this subject should be filed in the last week of July. Negotiations should be conducted by state government labor departments for the convenience of employees and employers.

The court said that employers and employees should compromise among themselves on the payment of salary. Industries and workers need each other and efforts should be made to resolve the wage payment dispute. At the same time, the matter will be heard again in the last week of July.
