Don’t assign night duty to women

Don’t assign night duty to women Karnataka House panel

On Monday a report was placed by joint house legislature panel in the legislature assembly that has recommended the IT (Information Technology) and Bio-Technology of Bengaluru to not assign night shift to women. This move is to ensure their safety, security and privacy needs. The report said the companies should prefer men to work in night shifts.

The recommendation is said to be in contrary to the state government’s decision in 2016. The government had given up restrictions and allowed women to work in night shifts so that they have equal opportunity as men. Women were allowed in night shifts in only IT and ITES sectors.
