The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on March 29 issued a circular wherein it stated that all the employers must pay wages to the employees without any deduction in the salary even if the company is closed due to the COVID-19 Lockdown. However, this circular was repealed by issuance of a new circular on May 17, hence, not making it mandatory for employers in private companies to pay full or any salary during the lockdown period. Currently there are no provisions protecting employees to ensure wages or the job position. You can take the help of a lawyer to discuss more on this.
