Making a case for liberalising labour laws, the National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganised Sector suggested on Thursday adoption of conditional hire and fire policy, while safeguarding the interest of workers.

The NCEUS's has suggested that an amendment to the Industrial Dispute Act, which prohibit retrenchment of workers by enterprises employing over 100 persons without permission from the government, is needed.

Will such a plan help or badly affect India's workforce? Is such a policy too employer-friendly and goes against the interest of the labourers? Do you think more labour-friendly laws are needed?

Or do you think in this era, we need laws that help employers sack employees that they feel are 'dead wood?'  In any case, do you feel a national debate on this is needed before powers are given to employers to hire and fire at will? Tell us!
