Weird Laws Around the World
Indian Labor laws
Bhagwat is a small-time entrepreneur who operates a clothing factory. The business is doing well and the next logical step would be to expand his business and become bigger. The only hurdle is, as soon as the number of employees in Bhagwat's business exceeds 100, he would come under draconian Indian labor laws. There are 55 central laws and more than 100 labor laws. According to one law, a business with more than 100 employees cannot fire people without government permission. To top it off, the permission is rarely granted.
