Good news, everyone! Now women can work during late night shifts too, thanks to Rajasthan govt.
Presently women are not permitted to work between 7 pm and 6 am slot in Rajasthan as per the labour laws. But now sectors like BPOs, private businesses, electronic data processing and e-commerce, etc can employ women for night shifts. Apart from this, the women employees working in the private sectors will get double wages.
These provisions have been clubbed in a new draft of amendments in the Rajasthan Shops and Commercial Establishment Act, 1985 prepared by the labour department.
Don’t you think, this move will definitely empower women both financially and emotionally. Plus, gender-equality at work will finally be exercised in our state.
