The impact is more emoployees will be under the PW Act .More employees will come under the hammer of section 9 of the Act ie,8 days wages deduction for concerted absence.In Factories more workers holding postions of management or supervision or holding confidential positions will be eligible for OT wages.

Dear Mahesh,
According to section 9(2) of the POW Act, 1936 we can deduct upto 8 days wages. Relevant portion of this section may be read as under.
Sec 9(2) - Provided that, subject to any rules made in this behalf by [the appropriate Government], if ten or more employed persons acting in concert absent themselves without due notice (that is to say without giving the notice which is required under the terms of their contracts of employment) and without reasonable cause, such deduction from any such person may include such amount not exceeding his wages for eight days as may by any such terms be due to the employer in lieu of due notice.
