Prime Time With Ravish Kumar, May 11, 2020 | State Governments Begin To Suspend Labour Laws

Following Uttar Pradesh, now other states such as Madhya Pradesh have begun suspending labour laws. Last week, the state cabinet gave its nod to the ”Uttar Pradesh Temporary Exemption from Certain Labour Laws Ordinance, 2020” that exempts factories, business establishments and industries from the purview of all but three labour laws and a provision of another legislation for three years. The state government defended the move saying that it was being done to ‘attract new investment’. With the COVID-19 crisis already having hit people of the working class hard, is salt being applied to the wound by suspension of laws that safeguarded workers from exploitation by employers?
