The queries are answered below at seriatim:
1: Following the Corona outbreak, the Gujarat Government had relaxed the Factories Act requirements regarding working conditions in factories there. It is not known whether the relaxed rules are still there or the status quo ante has been restored. Pl check it.
2. If the employees are permitted to do overtime during the season beyond the allowed hours, it may result in the prosecution of the Factory occupier and manager for violation of the Act, if it comes to the knowledge of the Factories Inspector.
3. Rediness or willingness of the employees to do overtime beyond the permitted hours is of no help, and is not an excuse to violate the law
4. Female workers can do overtime.
5. Female workers can be put on the night shift, subject to the safeguards laid down by the State Government.
6. There is no provision available to allow employees to do extra working hours beyond the permitted hours. If you want to avoid the risk in this regard, recruit the required number of temporary workers or outsource needed activities, strictly for a short period.
