In a recent judgment, the Supreme Court ruled that the act of regularizing the services of
certain employees while excluding others who are equally entitled to such regularization is
discriminatory and violates principles of equality. The Court emphasized the importance of
treating all employees fairly and equally, irrespective of any arbitrary distinctions.
The case involved a situation where a particular group of employees had their services
regularized by the employer, while another group of employees with similar qualifications
and experience were left out of the regularization process. The Court held that this
differential treatment based on arbitrary criteria violated the fundamental right to equality
enshrined in the Constitution.
The Supreme Court emphasized that the regularization of services should be based on
objective and reasonable criteria that are uniformly applied to all eligible employees. Any
differentiation in treatment must have a rational basis and should not result in unfair
discrimination or arbitrary exclusion.
By this ruling, the Supreme Court sends a clear message that employers must adhere to
principles of equality and non-discrimination while making decisions regarding the
regularization of employee services. Discriminatory practices that treat similarly situated
employees differently based on arbitrary factors are not permissible under the law and are
liable to be struck down.
This judgment serves as a significant precedent in employment law, reaffirming the
fundamental right to equality in the workplace and promoting fair and just practices in the
regularization of employee services. It highlights the importance of treating all employees
equally, ensuring that their rights and entitlements are protected without any unjust
discrimination.
