Karnataka women can't do night shifts in IT and BT sectors

It seems like Karnataka women can't do night shift jobs as the joint house committee of the state legislature on women and child welfare recommended that women working in Information Technology (IT) and Bio-Technology (BT) companies not be assigned night shifts in the interests of their safety. MLA NA Haris categorically denied wanting to bring in a ban on women employees working on night shifts but believes prevention is always better than cure. There are a lot of women who approached us and said that in night it is difficult for them but they are forced to go in the night, NA Haris said. He cited the example of Amazon which has already shifted women working in the US night shift to the UK shift.
