Bom High Court - Principle of 'no work no pay' cannot be made applicable in extraordinary circumstances like COVID 19 Pandamic   May 12, 2020

In a Petition filed by a Union of contract labour making a grievance of reduction in salary, the Bombay High court has, pending hearing and disposal of the Petition, held that the principle of 'no work no wages' would not apply in extraordinary circumstances like COVID 19. The Court observed that  it cannot be insensitive to the plight of such workers, which has unfortunately befallen them on account of the Covid­19 pandemic.  

In para 5 of the order, the Hon'ble High Court issued the following directions:

" In the meanwhile, the District Collector, Osmanabad, in his capacity as President of Respondent No.2 Trust/ Principal Employer, shall ensure that full wages, save and except food allowance and conveyance allowance (only with regard to the employees who are not required to report for duties), shall be isbursed by the contractors to the concerned employees for the months of March, April and May, 2020. The principle of “no work­ no wages” shall not be invoked until further orders in this petition. Needless to state, such payment of wages would be subject to the result   of   this   petition   or   the   proceedings   before   the   Assistant Commissioner of Labour, Latur, which would progress only if the lockdown   is   completely   lifted   and   free   movement   of   citizens   would   be permitted."
