Difference Between Lock-Out And Retrenchment - Industrial Disputes Act, 1947
Difference Between Lock-Out And Retrenchment :
1. Lock-out is temporary;
retrenchment is permanent. Retrenchment results in complete severance of
industrial relationship between an employer and an employee; while lock-out
keeps this relationship alive even during the cessation of work. The former
results in severance of relationship between the employer and the employee;
while the latter amounts to only suspension of this relationship.
2. Lock-out is with a motive to
coerce the workmen to accept the demands of the employer; retrenchment is
resorted to dispense with surplus labour.
3. Lock-out is due to and during an
industrial dispute; there is no such dispute in case of retrenchment.
