However, it is submitted that a balance needs to be drawn between the rights of the employers and those of the employees, the latter being the more disadvantaged class”, clarify petitioners, Rajesh Inamdar, Advocate, and Harpreet Saluja, General Secretary, National Information Technology Employees Sena. “The present petition is being preferred only to ensure that in the unprecedented situation, whereby the functioning of whole country has virtually come to a standstill, does not result in an unmitigated disaster in the loss of jobs in the public/private sectors, thereby forcing a huge human cost on the Country. The Country which was already trying to recover from the economic crisis and unemployment issues had to be brought to complete blockade due to rapid spread of the COVID-19 wherein the entire nation was put into lockdown due to which the issues which were already existing will be worsened”, it is asserted. The Government of India issued an advisory dated March 20 to the various public/private companies to not lay off its employees or to not terminate their services, and also not deduct their pay. The notification also mentions that even if a place of employment is non-operational, the employees would be deemed to be on duty. In his address to the nation the Prime Minister has requested Companies not to fire/terminate employees due to coronavirus lockdown and also to pay full wages/salaries to the employees. On March 29 2020, the Union Government, to effectively implement the lockdown order and to mitigate the economic hardship of the migrant workers issued an order under Section 10(2)(1) of the Disaster Management Act, 2005. It directed the State governments and the Union Territories (SGs/UTs) to issue orders, compulsorily requiring all the employers in the industrial sector and shops and commercial establishments to pay wages to their workers at their workplaces on the due date without any deduction during their closure due to lockdown It is submitted that various private Companies in the country have initiated a drive of illegal mass termination of the employees, withholding of the salaries or illegal deduction of salaries in complete breach and violation of the directions/advisories, taking advantage of the deadlock situation which has emerged in the Country. The employers who are in a dominant position are taking harsh decisions and unconscionable bargains with the employees. A sizable population in the country is in the service of private companies, and therefore, apart from their employment contracts, have no other refuge. The employees working in various IT/ITES companies across countries for over several years have been instructed/informed over phones calls about their termination without even following the procedure envisaged under various enactments viz Industrial Disputes Act etc and hence, such terminations are illegal, unreasonable and based on convenience. It is submitted that no procedure like notice period, intimation to government authorities, payment of retrenchment compensation, payment of gratuity, Leave encashment, etc. has been undertaken by the Companies. It is advanced that the employees are in no way responsible for the present pandemic lockdown situation, but are at the receiving end. In the absence of issuance of any binding directives/directions to the private companies, thousands of employees will be susceptible to losing their jobs/incomes, which will lead to an unprecedented economic situation – a situation that the country cannot afford. It is pointed that the Government’s order directs all commercial establishments, private offices, industrial establishments and factories to remain closed through the lockdown. All these employees who were terminated over a phone call/email in the midst of the lockdown situation have no option even to protest or seek explanations. Immediately thereafter in almost all cases access to company emails and other platforms were barred. Salaries have also been withheld and deducted without any basis. Most of the IT employees who stay away from their family are finding it difficult to even pay monthly rents, EMIs, manage daily expenses and other liabilities. “It is pertinent to indicate that as per the statistic presented Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy, (CMIE) as on 19.04.2020 the unemployment rate 30 day moving average (%)in Urban India 23.93 whereas in Rural India is 20.54 and if no steps are taken in this regard the ratio of unemployment will be further exacerbate”, it is argued. “If this Hon’ble Court were not to pass Orders, there would be an unprecedented economic situation created in the country, and several thousand persons falling within the bracket of “middle class” would be adversely and prejudicially affected”, the petition avers. It is submitted that the economic and social impact of unregulated mass terminations and delayed payment of salaries or pay cuts will be extremely severe and have a very large and serious human impact, and in contravention of the fundamental rights under Articles 14, 19(1) (g) and 21. “While the advisories issued by several state governments in relation to non-termination and non- deduction of wages of employees may not have a binding effect, the state governments are empowered to issue a direction in this regard under their respective Shops and Establishment legislations”, suggests the plea filed by AOR Amit Pai, settled by Senior Advocate Devadutt Kamat. It is urged the “employers as their Corporate Social Responsibility be mandated to not terminate or layoff the employees and pay their full salaries so that they are not compelled to come on the streets and join the workers on the streets who are struggling to manage to two times meals” as this would “add excessive and unwarranted burden on the Union and State Government”The Petition has been drawn by Advocates Rajesh Inamdar Amit Pai And Aishwarya Rai B Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

NLSIU has confirmed that “it is fully committed to delivering the NLAT 2020 on time and in a student friendly manner”.It has stated that the University, and its Vice Chancellor have not violated the Consortium Bye-Laws & has not acted in derogation of the objectives of the Consortium at any time and in any manner and that Consortium’s decisions to postpone CLAT on 05.08.2020 and 27.08.2020 were not taken unanimously as has previously been reported.”NLSIU affirms that the University, and its Vice Chancellor, have not violated the Consortium Bye-Laws. NLSIU has been a Founding Member of the Consortium, and has not acted in derogation of the objectives of the Consortium at any time and in any manner. Moreover, the Vice Chancellor has not acted in any manner that gives rise to any potential for a conflict of interest. Hence, the claims made and decisions reported to have been taken by the Consortium in its Press Release dated 6th September have no legal basis or authority”It is pointed out in the Press Release that the NLSIU had on several occasions proactively presented several options to the Governing Body & Executive Committee of the Consortium to ensure conduction of the CLAT 2020 on account of the concerns raised about its delay which included the following:Carving out an exception for NLUs to design their own admission process for 2020-21 as a single national examination may not be feasible in 2020;Allowing for CLAT 2020 to be conducted in two or more series so that Universities may choose either the earlier or later date series;Allowing for individual NLUs to conduct an examination, permitting CLAT-enrolled candidates to appear for a separate examination with no further need for registration or fee payment;The Press Release states that these options “were repeatedly rejected” by the Executive Committee of the Consortium of NLUs. “On the one hand the Consortium was unwilling to confirm the date for the conduct of CLAT 2020. On the other it was unable to consider any of the options proposed by NLSIU, or permit individual NLUs to develop their own approach in the exceptional circumstances presented in a COVID-affected academic year.” – NLSIUFurther to this, it is stated that “faced with no option, NLSIU by its Notification dated 3.09.2020, introduced a revised Admissions Procedure for the B.A., LL.B. (Hons) and LL.M. candidates through a new entrance examination, the National Law Aptitude Test (“NLAT”) for the year 2020-2021, in view of the inordinate delays in the conduct of CLAT 2020, and in order to avoid a Zero Year”.The NLSIU claims that it did not receive a copy of the Press Release and learnt about it from the newspapers & that the General Body had no legal authority under the Memorandum of Association or the Byelaws to adopt a resolution removing NLSIU from the Consortium.”We understand that the Consortium issued a Press Release, though NLSIU did not receive a copy of this Press Release and learnt about this from the newspapers. Further, no copy of the Resolutions have been received by the University. The University responded to the Consortium in writing to point out that the General Body had no legal authority under the Memorandum of Association or the Byelaws to adopt a resolution removing NLSIU from the Consortium. Moreover, NLSIU reiterated that it would fully support the smooth conduct of CLAT 2020″ – NLSIUThe Press Release further clarifies that the situation arising out of the repeated postponement of CLAT 2020 was fully discussed by the Faculty and the Executive Council which unanimously resolved and authorized the University, and the Vice Chancellor to conduct a separate admissions process, if there was any further delay of CLAT 2020.In light of the statements of the Consortium in its Press Release dated September 6, the NLSIU states that it has no alternative but to completely dissociate itself from the CLAT 2020.NLSIU: “No member of the University, including the Vice Chancellor or any member of staff shall hereafter participate in CLAT 2020 in any manner, administratively or otherwise”Click Here To Read Press ReleaseRead Press ReleaseSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

NYPD/Chief Rodney Harrison(NEW YORK) — A New York City police lieutenant was shot in the arm in the Bronx Sunday morning, about 12 hours after another officer was shot in the head while on patrol nearby, police authorities said. The Sunday morning incident took place in the 41st Precinct in the Longwood neighborhood of the Bronx, where cops quickly cordoned off the streets and apprehended a suspect, who is believed to be connected to the previous night’s shooting, multiple officials told ABC News. Another officer was wounded in Sunday’s incident. Both officers, who have not been identified, were rushed to a hospital, and their injuries do not appear life-threatening, according to police.The neighborhood was rocked with violence Saturday night when a suspect allegedly walked up to a marked police vehicle and began asking for directions before opening fire at the officer, according to ABC News’ New York station WABC-TV. The investigation was ongoing and New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea and Mayor Bill de Blasio were slated to provide an update later in the day.Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted Sunday morning that he was horrified by the multiple attacks and promised to bring the suspects to justice. “NY’s law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. These attacks are heinous,” he wrote. Police say the officer wounded in Saturday’s attack yelled once he saw the gun and put the police car into drive but was struck by a bullet in the neck and chin during the commotion. Officers were not able to return fire during the incident.The officer’s partner then immediately drove the injured man to Lincoln Hospital where he was being treated and is expected to survive. The officer has not yet been publicly identified but authorities have confirmed that he is an 8-year veteran assigned to the 41st Precinct and that he has known his partner since they were in middle school. “Multiple shots were fired by the perpetrator at close proximity into the van,” said Police Commissioner Shea during a press conference. “At least one, possibly two, shots struck the operator of the van. One struck him in the chin. One struck him in the neck narrowly missing the carotid region and it is a miracle that we are not here under worse circumstances.”Mayor de Blasio echoed the commissioner’s sentiments during the same press conference. “Our officer and his partner, under the most adverse possible situation, did everything right and thank God both of them are safe,” said de Blasio. “But I want New Yorkers to be clear, this was an attempt to assassinate police officers.”The suspect in Saturday’s shooting has been described as a 20-30-year-old man dressed in black with a black hat, and approximately 5’7″ in height.
