What do employers need to do if they need to stay operational during the lockdown?

To stay operational during the lockdown, the employer’s establishment must be specifically exempted or excluded from the lockdown either by the Central or the State Government.

Currently, only establishments providing essential services have been excluded from the lockdown. Further, in most cases, employees who are working in such establishments must be provided with passes or letters that permit them to travel to work during the lockdown in the manner prescribed by the State Governments.

Also, all health and safety directions prescribed by the Government to contain the pandemic will need to be adhered to.
