Webinar on ‘Decoding Payment of Wages during Lockdown w.r.t Supreme Court Interim Order’

Payment of wages during lockdown has been a contentious issue especially since the order passed by the Ministry of Home Affairs under Disaster Management Act 2005 dated March 29, 2020.  This order had been challenged in the Supreme Court by a number of organizations since there has been confusion regarding the responsibility of employers to pay wages of their employees during lockdown period. Though the interim order of June 04, 2020 spelt that no coercive action be taken against employers there was still a dilemma of how to pay the wages.

The Supreme Court has passed an interim order on June 12, 2020 suggesting certain guidelines for resolution of this issue.
