On 29 March 2020, the Ministry of Home Affairs under Disaster Management Act 2005 passed an order regarding payment of wages during lockdown, which has been a contentious issue ever since.

The order was challenged in the Supreme Court by a number of organisations since there has been confusion regarding the responsibility of employers to pay wages of their employees during the lockdown period. Though the interim order of 4 June 2020 spelt that no coercive action be taken against employers there was still a dilemma of how to pay the wages.

The Supreme Court passed an interim order on 12 June 2020 suggesting certain guidelines for resolution of this issue. However, there are still many doubts regarding the order and its implementation. To decode this, DIGC has invited advocate Mahesh Shukla, an expert in labour laws and advisor to important government institutions and companies for a discussion to unravel the nuances of the order.

The webinar will be organised on Wednesday, 24 June 2020 between 4.30 and 6 pm. The event will be moderated by CA Uday Dhote, director at DIGC and chairman, education and training, AIFMP.

Participants can send across their questions in the registration form. Registration fee for the event is Rs 500 per person. For more information, contact radha@dhoteoffset.net or call 9967870946.
