In this Employment Corner bulletin (December 2021 – February 2022), we discuss important judgments dealing with issues such as:
(1) An employee can be dismissed based on the findings of disciplinary proceedings even if there is an acquittal in a criminal trial; (2) The right to work in a peaceful atmosphere is a basic right and administrative lapses in handling sexual harassment complaints cannot be entertained and
(3) Employees can be asked to undertake RT-PCR tests at their own cost. We also look at updates on the rollout of the Labour Codes and other significant statutory developments in our latest Employment Corner bulletin.
Our bulletin also covers contemporary market trends like mental health mentors at the workplace, inclusive policies for transgender employees and specific programs aimed at having homemakers at the workplace.
