Employment Agreement Laws In India
1.6 To what extent are the terms of employment agreed in collective bargaining? Do negotiations usually take place at the company or sector level? Employment policies, such as maternity leave, maternity leave, working time, etc., are governed by the existing Shops and Establishment Act. Other relevant laws regulating various aspects of employment are Factories Act, 1948, The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961, The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972, etc. Apart from certain employment statutes that may apply to the self-employed category of salaried workers, the relationship with an inactive worker is subject to the employment contract (provided the conditions are no less favourable in relation to certain applicable statutes). However, the information must first include whether it is a trade secret (exclusively accessible to a particular company and not publicly available) or general information that may be available to the public. In Polymer Papers Limited v. Gurmit Singh – Ors.1, the Delhi Supreme Court considered a case in which the applicant attempted to deter an employee from disclosing certain trade secrets on the basis of intellectual property rights, although there was no agreement between the parties. The defendant had previously cooperated with the applicant company and then joined a competing company. The applicant had argued that the defendant had committed trade secrets and other confidential information relating to certain products, for which the plaintiff had exclusive rights and therefore the defendant had committed a violation. However, as evidenced by the facts in the Delhi Supreme Court, there was no agreement between the complainant and the defendant and others, the plaintiff had not disclosed essential facts, nor had he concealed information about the relationship between the plaintiff and the competing company to which the defendant had joined. As a result, the Delhi Supreme Court found that the applicant was not entitled to a discretionary injunction in all cases. The Delhi Supreme Court also found that the applicant did not have exclusive intellectual property rights in respect of the products in dispute and therefore there was no reason why the applicant could claim. With regard to sexual harassment, sexual harassment of women in the workplace (prevention, prohibition and reparation) Act 2013 (law) and sexual harassment of women in the workplace (prevention, prohibition and recourse) were declared and entered into force from 9 December 2013.
