Air India ends Work From Home, asks employees to report from July 20

Air India on Wednesday ended its work-from-home practice, and asked all its employees to report to work from July 20.
The office order cited the June 5 and June 29 notifications issued by the government as part of the Unlock 1 and 2 processes to reopen in phases.
“It has now been decided that all Air India offices will function in full strength effective July 20 and no separate roster for functioning under Covid situation is to be operated. Employees who do not attend office with effect from July 20 will have to apply for leave or shall be marked absent,” the order said.
The order excluded employees living in containment zones but directed them to inform the office and update the office about the containment status at regular intervals.
“‘Work from Home’ option can be considered for employees who are at higher risk due to medical
conditions, pregnant women and employees staying in containment zones,” it added, asking all departmental heads to ensure proper sanitisation in the offices and maintenance of social distancing norms among other health protocols.
In another controversial order, the Air India board of directors approved a Leave Without Pay scheme to send employees on compulsory Leave Without Pay ranging from six months to two years, and extendable up to five years. The order issued on Tuesday states that departmental heads at headquarters and regional directors are required to assess every individual based on suitability, efficiency, competence, quality of performance, heath of the employee, and redundancy. Regional offices were asked to submit the list of employees recommended for leave without pay to the CMD’s office by August 15.
