Hi, I am working in a BPO company as a workman since July 2019. Recently we recieved a communication from our manager that the business is about to ramp down from this location due to the ongoing pandemic hence, we are given two options either to serve a notice period of a month, till June or till July with half working hours and half salary. I personally feel that this is not the correct way of approach.
Kindly suggest if we can avoid this since, getting new jobs at current situation is unlikely.
They said "since the company is asking to resign a month earlier, there are no retrenchment compensations applicable".
Please also let us know if we can ask for a retrenchment compensation through legal approach.

The present inability of the employer to provide employment to all on the roll may be true and his decision to rightsize the number of employees cannot be found fault with in the lockdown situation and the economic consequences to follow. But he should not compel or coerce the employees to resign without any compensation - that too after serving the notice period at half the wages.
If any employee who has completed 240 days of continuous service in the establishment is retrenched without retrenchment compensation and notice as provided for u/s 25-F of the IDA,1947, that is illegal.
Better bring it to the notice of the management and insist on retrenchment compensation. Don't yield to their pressure and tender resignation in which case you will have to serve the notice period or to pay the proportionate amount and you will not get any amount.
