Human Resources Minister M Saravanan today revealed a worrying retrenchment scenario due to the Covid-19 pandemic where some employers terminated workers without informing the Labour Department.

He said Section 63 of the Employment Act 1955 clearly stated that employers who carry out retrenchment, whether permanent or temporary retrenchment, voluntarily and also salary reduction, must fill an employment notification Retrenchment Form (PK Form) and submit it to the Labour Office at least thirty days before the termination or salary reduction.
