Hello I know of a friend who works in a hotel in delhi. She works the 3 pm to 12 pm shift also. Isn't there a rule which asks the employer/hotel to drop women employees uptil their residence gate if working late. She stays in Gurgaon and they say the hotel will drop them only till the border. What can the person do? Is there anyone who can clarify this for me in legal terms. Anupama
earlier women were not allowed to work beyond 7pm but the relaxation in certain sectors has come based on superior infrastructure eg radio cabs/ women security personnel etc. last month itself, the BPOs in gurgaon were breiefed by the Police deptt to beef up the security aspect eg background screening of cab drivers/ gps tracking etc. you can definitley take on this establishment and get this privilege revoked (of women working in night shift ) surya
Hi, Female Employees working beyond Normal Working Hours in Hotel Industry is very common. Many Star Hotels have this practice.. But they provide good Facilities like Transport, Rest Rooms for Female staff with lady security etc., Engaging Female employee in Night Shift has become normal.. I hope the ban for Female employee working in night shift has been with drawn in karnataka. Tell your Friend to speak directly with the Management for extending facilities.. Regards, Amarnath
My dear friend, As opined by our other friends, women are working beyond normal working hours and even in night shifts. Of course, it is the responsibility of the employer to take care of their employees, especially women employees who work for the organization beyond office hours and night shifts. However, employers, may be in unorganized sectors and some times even in organized sectors, leave the risk of attending duty and leaving for home during odd hours to the employees. The present-day women are as gritty as their colleagues of opposite gender and hence employers seldom pay special attention towards their women employees. Of course, we can take up legally in which case we may lose the job. Unless otherwise employers are turned fair-minded, this problem will exist. Tell your friend to have a friendly confabulation with her employers highlighting her inabilities and difficulties. All the best. Ganesh Ramachandran
dear ravi everything judgement copy is not required because the things given in act itself not required to have judgement copy.so this is given in factories act as well as shop and est act of states. night sdhift working is only allowed in hotels when they take permission to do so and this permission is conditional where employuer give in writing to labour commissioner that they will provide these facility to women workers.conveyance facility is one of them.your friend might be staying at the time of recruitment in delhi . tks j s malik
