Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit India and the country declared complete lockdown in March 2020. The conditions kept on worsening everywhere, be it health sector, economy, labour markets, education level or anything. Every sector suffered a lot. So, at that stage, work from home was introduced in India, when from government officials to private sectors, from IT companies to education, everyone got shifted to online and virtual modes. The employees, worked overtime because it was presumed that they are at homes. No proper facilities were provided to the employees. No one cared for their health, working hours, house-hold work and other personal works. There were no proper guidelines for work from home provided by the government neither do we have a proper legislature for the same nor it is mentioned anywhere, so every employer took work according to his own guidelines and manner which suited well to him. While the law makers have also experienced such type of change for the first time, so they also needed some time to examine and settle with such shift. Keeping faith and positive attitude, we can expect there to be enforcement in law, in relation to the issues arising from working from home. In this article it is inculcated the routes opted by government and recommendations given by International labour Organization on the complications faced by the employer and employees from this new norm of working.
