Is it a condition precedent for granting the benefit under Section 17-B that the Supreme Court or a High Court must stay the award directing reinstatement of the workman?
In terms of Section 17-B, as soon as the employer prefers any proceedings against such award in the Supreme Court or a High Court, he becomes liable to pay to the workman during the pendency of such proceedings full wages last drawn by him. It is not necessary that the award must be stayed by the Court as a condition precedent for granting the benefit under Section 17 -B to the workman. The object of the said Section is to provide protection to the workman when his reinstatement is challenged by the employer and thereby the workman IS deprived of wages and becomes unable to maintain his family.
