I have a query regarding Lay off. Section 25M of the Industrial Disputes Act, says prior approval of the appropriate authority is required for declaring lay off. But someone suggested me to go for layoff without approval.
If there is mutual agreement between labour union and the management, there is no requirement to take the prior approval is it? I went through a case law, wherein it is mentioned that the Company had not taken the approval of the appropriate authority and declared layoff. Then company had to pay full wages. For details please follow the below link:
Kinldy provide the case laws or specific section where it is mentioned that the lay off can be declared with mutual understanding.
Thanks and Regards
