Govt to provide unemployment allowance to jobless workers

01
Aug '09
Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 puts restriction on lay-offs and retrenchment and provides protection to the workmen in case of lay-off, retrenchment and closure of establishments. Moreover, Ministry of Labour & Employment is implementing the Rajiv Gandhi Shramik Kalyan Yojna through the ESI Corporation which provides unemployment allowance for upto one year to those insured employees who have put in five years of service and have been rendered jobless due to retrenchment, closure of factories or permanent disability due to non-employment injury.

Our Ministry is closely monitoring the situation. The state governments have also been advised to make their industrial conciliation machinery more effective and sensitive to ensure industrial peace and implement labour laws in an appropriate manner so that the interest of the workmen is protected.

I share the concerns of the Hon'ble Member(s) on the matter and assure the House that our Government is taking all possible steps to successfully address this challenge. However, I welcome the suggestions of the Hon'ble Members to successfully handle the situation which has arisen due to the courrent global economic slowdown.”
