“Whether companies should have flexible policies for employment or not?” Discuss.
Globalisation is the interconnection between counties through the expansion of foreign trade and foreign investment. It is the process of integrating the home country with foreign countries through the movement of goods, services, investment, technology and people. Flexibility in labour laws is an important impact of globalisation.
Government is providing many incentives for the MNCs to attract foreign companies. In the organised sector, the rights of the workers are protected. But MNCs are allowed to overlook many of these rules. One such incentive provided to the MNCs is flexibility in labour laws.
According to this, the companies are allowed to hire workers for short periods of time when the pressure of work is more, rather than hiring them on a regular basis. This is a way to reduce the cost of production for the companies. With the increasing competition in the market, MNCs placing orders for their products in the domestic countries are forcing the domestic producers to employ workers on a temporary basis to reduce their cost of production. Thus, they need not pay them for the whole year and can employ additional workers only during the peak seasons of demand. Also, workers are made to work overtime, but they are paid less. This results in uncertainty in jobs.
This uncertainty in jobs can have serious implication in the living standards of the people. Thus the companies should not adopt flexibility employment policies.
