New Delhi: The Modi government has asked all public and private companies to ensure that they do not cut salaries of their staff or resort to layoffs of their employees amid the lockdowns imposed to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

Secretary of the Labour Ministry, Heeralal Samariya, sent out an advisory, in the form of a letter, in this regard Monday. “The world is facing a catastrophic situation due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and in order to combat this challenge, coordinated joint efforts of all sections of the society is required,” the letter reads.

“In view of the above, there may be incidence(s) that employees’/workers’ services are dispensed with on this pretext or the employee/worker is forced to go on leave without wage/salaries,” it adds.

The government has advised public and private enterprises to not terminate the services or reduce the wages of their employees, particularly casual or contractual workers.

Bid to tackle crisis

As cases of COVID-19 rise in the country, several states have imposed lockdowns, restricting the movement of people even to their workplaces.

The advisory says that if any worker takes a leave, they should be deemed to be on duty without any deduction in wages. Doing so, the government has warned, would deepen the crisis.

“The termination of an employee from the job or reduction in wages in this scenario would further deepen the crises and will not only weaken the financial condition of the employee but also hamper their morale to combat their fight with this epidemic,” Samariya’s letter reads.

“In view of this, you are requested to issue necessary advisory to the employers/owners of all the establishments in the state.”

  31. The truth is that No body is helping in such situation, not also Modiji. They are just making such announcements but never ask us what our company is doing with us abt lockdown salary/ salary cut/ job loss. Comman man like us are much suffering & yet cant do anything.Regret Yaar.

  32. My company denied to pay our salary since Feb. As we are asking so they denied due to lockdown and threatened us.

    What we do now ? It’s a survival question for us. Anybody help . Govt email or contact no please share

  80. I see many people complaining here about their company fired them in lockdown
    But no one has answered it.

  96. Persons who have not done any major business or run industries can give free advice to collect their salaries . Guys who were doing portable business may also advise to give full salary to employees during lockdown.

    But from where industries and businesses will get money to pay salaries as grant or doles. Businesses do not have support of Ambani or Adani to help as to win elections!!! It is hard earned money for businesses to pay through the nose. Ever since we have jinxed from 2016 no one has recovered . Businesses have closed down. Now with Covid 19 many employees will lose jobs and businesses will close down. Let Govt. absorb all displaced workers and owners. We have very kind hearted leaders to help.

    have come to this decision that we are terminating you on the grounds of
    not following the company rules and policy which are to be followed by
    all the company employees. All your dues apart from your incentives
    would be cleared in 45 days.

    If you have questions about this letter please contact Rini Marian

  115. Our company in noida sector 6 asked the employee to put the resignation bcoz of covid 19. Very bad situation. Govt asked and declare both public and private organisation not to fire the employees but the fact is completely different. Just 10-15 days of lockdown the company is asking the employee to put the resignation. What to do now?

  116. I have recently join an organisation name Inspiring Education in kolkata near Birla planetarium on 11th of March and due to lockdown the company owner said we have to report on 1 April to office but today I have got a call and received a email that company is terminating us. Now in this situation what should I do ?

  117. Brainworks Solution the company from vadodara. Also giving deduction in salary during the lockdown period.

  118. Which business man will give salary for the work not done. Only perpetual borrowers who they their position to some cheats will ask you to pay salary for the days not worked and during lock down.

    We have had enough with this novice Govt. experimenting their knowledge with SSME and MSME. India will not at prosper at the present dispensation. Like monkey’s will be paying highest taxes for everything when others are enjoying on foreign trips and entertaining foreign guests with taxes paid money of Indians.

    There is no level playing ground for business people to invest as there are incentives but only tirmentations by the Govt. Which law says to give salaries for the days not worked or work not done. After NDA took over whole world knows the economic conditions of SSI’s and MSME’s. Govt. should give one time poison to all business people and industries instead of giving slow poison from time to time. India has never seen a worst economic situation after independence like this even when minority Govt. headed by late Chandrashekar was much much better. All of them had ears to listen and not a deaf and dumb Govt. of today.

  119. PM has not take care of citizens.

    I have lost my Salary from 23 march 2020 an worried about the home and expenses
    My company Manisha Laboratory in Mumbai Malad west charkop has didn’t ever asked how are we going through. I have a small dauther who ask for parle G, Milk,Maggie and rice

  120. Z 1 Media, Phase 4, Gurugram has asked employees to write an resignation letter/mail without any prior notice period.
    What do we do in this time of crisis?! Where do we go? They are not even paying us the salary for the month that we have last worked.

  121. I have been working with “AEGIS in Gurgaon udhyog vihar” which is now “STARTEK”. Work from home advisory passed on 15th April,2020 due to cov-19 but our company asked to work till 21st, april 2020 in a crowd of hundered’s, which was dead risky for us and took no action in this regard. Now they have been using all our “paid leaves” to save their revenue and people who don’t have any leaves will not be paid for these days and we will not be able to take any further leaves in future. Pls do something as these companies r doing nothing for their employees. Today they have sent us an email saying need to report from 1st of may. Seems like they don’t care about human lives and government laws so not to talk about advisories and request.

  122. I’m working with M&M Machine Craft Pvt. Ltd., Kherki Daula, Gurgaon.
    Company is deducting salary during National Lockdown declared by our Prime Minister due to COVID-19.
    Why would only an employee bare all the losses. It is important to be in home for every individual and yes it is important for the company also.
    Companies can atleast do this much to their employees.

  123. Shree partners company, Gurgaon Udyog vihar phase 4 has asked employees to draft a resignation mail due to covid-19 and only giving a notice period of 15 days.
    More than 50 -60 employees has been asked to do so.
    In this critical situation where the companies are supporting there employees and give wfh, and on continuous effort by pm/pmo/hrd to not terminate or remove employees, these kind of companies are putting the hell situation Infront of employees rather than to support them.
    God knows who will come Infront and support in this situation.

    • No private company is even bothered to what the PM of India is saying.

      We have not received the salary for the month of March and Company has communicated on Email that they will Pay 50% salary of March and April even though we have worked till 21st March and after lockdown we are continuously been forced to work from home till date else they will not pay the salary for the month of March as well.

      No actions are been taken by the Government against such private companies.
      Company Name- Redcliffe Lifescience Pvt Ltd

  124. Company name : Concentrix, Gurugram ( DLF phase 3, Cyberhub )

    They made new policy, comes into effect from 1st April

    They are not giving paid leave to employees, if agents are not able to come office from 1st April they will deduct leave and they are not following the orders of Labour Ministry.

    When we contact company manager or supervisor, they told they will deliver the PCs before 31st, but for the workers who currently not in NCR, they won’t get the system and they can not work from home by using personal laptop because of security purpose.

    So, employees who are not available in NCR location would not get any special leaves from company side , even we can not go back to office location to get the PCs due to locked down situation.

    Please contact our company if you can do anything for us, who are locked down at home right now and not able to get the system from office.

  125. I work at dmart and i am stuck at kalyan to relatives place. The officers are now asking me continuously to join the job. I told them that train are closed and she’s saying to ask someone to take u to the workplace. And say that now HR will talk to regarding the job. What should i do she’s now forcing me to leave the job or coming to job

  126. I work for a private company in Noida sec 58. We are approx 60 people of staff and our company is not giving us our salary for jan and Februar , reason given LOCKDOWN. kindly take action against them

  127. Hi, I have read many interesting and valuable concerns of so many officers. It’s not the pandemic of NCoV, but even if the situation had not been this worse, situations do creep in where employees are forced to resign or get terminated due to internal crisis within organisations.
    Please trust on Modi Government and kindly wait for further statutory orders for non deduction of salaries issued for the Pvt Ltd, Ltd, LLP, OPC and Public Ltd Companies, which are registered with MCA
    This pandemic is a force majeure and not an adequate time for any manpower retrenchment.
    Please contact MCA or your Company’s HRD for the same and ask them for written orders which in turn can be contested in the Courts of Law

  128.

  130. I am Arijit Roy residing in Kolkata I have been working in a Travel Agency company since couple of years, currently we are doing work from home but the problem started today evening when my Manager asked me to follow something which I did & informed him of the outcome of that so what he did he started yelling at me without any valid reason & tried to deviate the conversation & use it against me, he used his powers wrongly & blocked my login credentials, so I am left with no updates as he is not answering my calls not even I am getting any support from the HR, in this situation where we don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow I cannot compromise with my Job despite of being correct, I have all the evidences available with me to which may highlight the exact issue, as I don’t know who to approach please help me in this regards because I have a family to look after & a table to serve.

  131. completely understand the situation .

    both the company and the employee is in loss.

    hence it would be fair enough to share equal losses by both the employer and the employee i.e., 50-50% right.

    it is not fair to ask the employee to take his leave by force. managers hesitate to give a single day leave anytime wen it’s required but now saying not to worry and take leaves until situation becomes normal.

    why would only an employee bare all the losses. yes it is important to be in home for every individual and yes it is important for the company also .
    consider half day leave for one day lockdown .. atleast it can workout like this right. companies can atleast do this much to their employees.

    govt cannot think this much also…

  132. I am an employe of cbsl in kolkata center..they people are saying if we people not working in the lockdown they will deduct tha salary..sir compny have 900 empleye ..if we people do not get salary how can we pay the room rent ..and how can we eat

  133. I’m also working for this metal industrial company in rustenburg.
    We have been given notice letter to notify us that our contruct has been terminated during this lock down.
    Is it fair?

  135. Future group is asking the employees to put APL (all purpose leave) during the lock down days.
