Wage Discrimination between Permanent and Temporary Employees Disallowed

  • Temporary employees performing similar duties and functions as discharged by permanent employees entitled to draw wages at par with permanent employees in the government sector.
  • Mere difference in nomenclature would not disentitle an employee from being paid the same wages as permanent employees.
  • Any act of paying less wages as compared to others similarly situated, constitutes an act of exploitative enslavement.
