Lay-off Compensation

Lay-off Compensation

Section 25 C is the main Section which prescribes payment of compensation to workmen on being laid off. However, Section 25 E carves out exceptions and absolves the employer from the obligation of payment of lay-off compensation, if clauses (i) to (iii) of Section 25 E are attracted. Thus workmen, under Section 25 C are entitled to and under section E disentitled to receive the lay-off compensation.
