In a major labour reform decision, the Uttarakhand Government has allowed women to work night shift in factories, which was restricted to a 7 pm pack-up time. While employers will have to ensure their workplace safety and drop them home safely as well. Amended Act allows women also to work night shift from 7 pm to 6 am.
