I think Hariyana is going to go down the drains, business-wise and industry-wise.
Most Faridabad offices will move back to Delhi, I suspect, or guru gram.

But unfortunately, this will trigger more such stupid laws being passed by competitive vote seeking politicians in other states.

Surprising that the courts upheld this law

Dear Members,

The Writ Petition filed by FIA in Hon’ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana seeking stay on implementation of the 75% reservation of all jobs upto Rs. 30,000/- per month salary for Haryana domicile residents in all Private businesses in the State employing 10 or more, was scheduled to come up for hearing today i.e. 12.01.2022. However, in view of the surge in COVID-19 cases, on 10.01.2022, the Chief Justice passed an order specifying a new procedure for taking up cases. As per this procedure, all cases already fixed for the next one week have been adjourned to predetermined dates en bloc. FIA's matter is scheduled to come up on 02.02.2022.

However, in case of urgency, parties are required to move an application for preponement of cases through online mentioning, which has been done by FIA's lawyer yesterday morning by filing a mentioning request as required, and the same was allowed. As the necessary next step, FIA has also filed an application for preponement (diary no. 6284833), which most likely will come up for hearing on 14/15.01.2022. FIA has also prayed for interim relief in this application and will be pushing for stay on operation of the Act at the time of hearing.

We will keep you informed about the development (s) in this matter. To our knowledge there are five such writ petitions filed by Industrial Associations in Punjab & Haryana High Court.

Dear Respected Seniors,

Can anyone answer on these:

Are the consultant or people hired on the freelancing model also will be covered under this?

How to process works for remaining 75% - are we allowed to hire with 25% at our own or are we required to take permission from the Labour office for that?

Are the organizations allowed to hire from Naukri provided the candidates are registered on Haryana Job Portal?

From India, New Delhi

Please see the definition of employment and you will know if the consultants and freelancers are covered or not.
Most probably they are not, but it is not the designation but the work they are doing that will matter

You can hire from a portal, but the candidate must be domiciled in Hariyana (meaning staying there for 15 years)

Remaining 25% you can hire anyone you want.
