    Are salaries deducted during strikes?

    As an employer I am having the right to deduct the salaries of workers who work in my factory and are on strike? I came to know that I canít do this but why not when my production is not taking place and delays are there in fulfilling my contracts.

    It is understandable that you face a great deal of problem during strikes when your employees do not turn up and there is no production resulting in delay of contracts fulfillment.But being an employer ,you have to also think about the interest of the employer and also about the goodwill of your company.

    If you deduct salaries,then this will be a cause of dissatisfaction for the employers.As a result they may seek for new firms for better prospect.In this manner,you may lose efficient employees.This can also be a cause for the bad publicity of your firm.As a result many efficient freshers and experienced ones may not be willing to join your firm.Hence you should not take such decision.

    However,you should not leave the matter completely as you will be facing losses because of increasing number of strikes in modern world.You may formulate a law in your firm that the person who will be absent during strikes will have to lose his/her one casual leave for that day.You may even send office vehicle to pick up the employees for office.This will ensure that you do not get a setback due to losses during strikes.

    hi friend

    If your employees are resorting to strike then you even have the right to do what you want with them. I don't think there is any such law regarding this matter that you cannot deduct the salariy of your employees during the strike. But if there is one then you can't do anything my friend but have to follow it however you may dislike it. I am also on your side in this matter and completely sympathise with you. You should certainly consult your lawyer for the same and then only reach at a conclusion.

    Now if you are free to do as you want, then I think you should certainly deduct the salaries of those employees who are going on strike and if their demands are not genuine and unnecessary. But if their demands are genuine then I think you should fulfill their demands and thus get this matter over with as soon as possible. Now if their demands are not genuine , then you should make an announcement that you would cut their salaries for the time period they are going on strike as your work has come to a halt and thus there is no production going on. So if they are hell bent on doing what they like then you too would have your own way.

    I hope that your workers will then realise their mistake and maybe come back to work soon. But if they don't then they certainly deserve this punishment and thus you should better punish them in order to teach them a lesson for making unnecessary demands.

    Thus friend don't worry . I hope your problem is solved soon and your workers get back to work as soon as possible. Good luck and Thanks
