Dear friends,

The Supreme Court has ordered compensatory payment to workers of Bajaj Auto Ltd who had alleged that they were kept on temporary basis for several years denying permanent status. They alleged unfair labour practices under the Maharashtra law.

According to them, they were engaged in 1990; yet they were offered employment only for seven months each year and after the expiry of the period, their services used to be terminated. This was violation of the Model Standing Orders in the Industrial Employment ( Standing Orders) Act. The company contested and stated that they were engaged to meet targets, on temporary basis, with the consent of the trade union. The industrial court stated that the employees had clearly been continued for years but were not granted the status or privilege of permanency. It asked the management to pay sums calculated by the court.

The appeal of the company was dismissed by the Bombay High Court with adverse remarks against it. In its final appeal, the Supreme Court modified the order of the industrial court and reduced the payment.

Its indeed a landmark judgement and beneficial to thee disadvantaged party i.e. the labour.
The temporary employment of 7 months in a year; was a clever ploy to employ them for less than 240 days; so as to avoid regularizing them.
However; it is admirable that the Courts have seen through this subterfuge; and accordingly delivered justice to the exploited workers.
