Hello seniors,
I am working in a small international bpo. Total strength is about 80 employees and in coming month we are planning to downsize manpower by at least 30% to 35%.
Presently we are providing Cab facility (Cars) to all our employees who are coming in night shift, but after this downsizing of manpower, we are planning to stop providing cabs to rest of the employees also. We are well connected with roads, so I donít think commuting will be problem with rest of the employees.
I am already aware about legal obligations of transport for female employees.
Now I want to know is there any legal obligation to provide transport for night shift employees. Is it applicable for male employees also?
If you can share any ppt/pdf or link in this regards it will be highly appreciable.
Waiting for valuable inputs.
Regards,
Abhishek

There is no legal obligation for you to provide cab facility to your male employees. But if you have agreed to provide cab for attending night shifts, then it becomes a part of service conditions applicable and withdrawing that customary benefit without letting the employee know about it in advance and without giving a notice of change as is prescribed u/s 9A of the Industrial Act will invite legal complications. Therefore, before withdrawing it you will have to take the employees into confidence and any allowance to compensate it should be made.

Dear Mr. Madhu, How about Female employees.? This is a usual question. The exact legal knowledge wrt the sub rule number would help. Thanks & Regards, Sudhir
About engaging women during night shift (time between 7 pm and 6 am) it is clear without doubt that permission is granted only if facilities for transport is given and the question does not arise if we can withdraw it. The original author has expressed that he has no doubt about it, and that is why I skipped it totally.

Dear Sir,
Thanks for the update.
Request to pl let me know the Act / rule number.
As stated earlier this is a usual questions by various employees and organisations.
Although I say it is responsibility of employer, I never got clear rule or Act clause number. (May be that I did not go through it much more attentive)
Request to pl update.
Thanks & Regards,
Sudhir
LADY EMPLOYEES NEED TO BE PROVIDED NOT ONLY TRANSPORT BUT ALSO SECURITY AS PER SUPREME COURT. PL CHECK WP THIS ALSO
Dear Madhu,
