Q. Is it fair to sack people who don’t have any work given the lockdown and possible after-effects? If not sack, is it right to even ask them to go on leave without pay or more than a 60% pay cut?

 

A. From a moral and morale point of view, I can empathise with your question. The psycho-eco repercussions can rupture the emotional state of any individual, post separation from an organisation. I can’t go into the propriety of micro-decisions of various organisations as the imponderables and imperatives of every organisation are unique. Without any data point on the subject, it would be irresponsible on my part to mix rational and moral issues in business process continuity.
