India – Responding to COVID-19 – Guidance for Indian employers 


Thursday, March 26, 2020

02:30 PM IST


In a very significant move, the Prime Minister of India announced a country wide lockdown with effect from 00:00 hours March 25, 2020 to contain the spread of Covid -19. The World Health Organization has lauded India’s efforts to prevent the spread of the global pandemic. While ‘social distancing’ seems to be a logical, reasonable, and essential tool to respond to the situation, employers in India are faced with a business continuity crisis and being challenged with the need to put in place, new and possibly creative models.


AZB & Partners, in collaboration with Conventus Law, are hosting this webinar to address common questions and concerns faced by Indian employers, particularly on:


  • mandatory safety and reporting obligations and best practices to contain spread of the pandemic;
  • leave, compensation, and other benefits to accommodate testing, quarantine, and recovery;
  • reporting obligations and data privacy concerns;
  • remote working and implications from an employment law and information security perspective; and
  • redundancies, business disruption, and other practical consequences.
