Delhi HC directs HT to reinstate 272 terminated employees, clear pending dues

The Delhi High Court has ordered reinstatement of the 272 employees of Hindustan Times Limited (HTL) who were terminated in the year 2004 when the company transferred the ownership of its printing undertaking to Hindustan Time Media Limited (HTML).

“To begin with, let the management deposit the wages of all the workmen, who have not yet attained the age of superannuation with benefit of continuity of service as per terms and conditions of service for the period 01.01.2004 till 31.08.2018 as per the Award with the Executing Court within one month, which shall be disbursed by the Executing Court to each workman individually,” the court order read.
The Delhi High Court has also directed Hindustan Times to implement “the Award dated 23.01.2012 immediately and reinstate the workmen w.e.f 03.10.2004 and provide them all the benefits of continuity of service as per terms and conditions of service as available to them before their termination...”
Earlier in 2012, the Industrial Tribunal had said that terminating the services of the workmen under Section 25FF of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 (ID Act) was held to be illegal and unjustified and HTL was directed to reinstate 272 workmen treating them in “continuity of service...”
To which the High Court now said that it was a case of “long checkered and tumultuous history where the workmen have still not seen the light at the end of the tunnel despite the Tribunal having passed the award in their favour six and a half years ago.”
