And, Tata Steel is one such company. The company has announced social security schemes for family members of employees who have been affected by Covid.
#TataSteel has taken the path of #AgilityWithCare by extending social security schemes to the family members of the employees affected by #COVID19. While we do our bit, we urge everyone to help others around them in any capacity possible to get through these tough times. pic.twitter.com/AK3TDHyf0H— Tata Steel (@TataSteelLtd) May 23, 2021
Under this scheme, if an employee dies of Covid-19, their family would receive the employee's salary till the time he/she (the employee) would have turned 60. The company in a statement said:
Tata Steel's best-in-class social security schemes will help ensure an honourable standard of living for their families, whereby the family will get the last drawn salary till 60 years of age of the deceased employee/nominee.
This initiative has earned huge praise online.
In a true sense, this is a great initiative which will make significant difference to families who have lost their dear ones in covid.— Ankie (@Curiosaboutlife) May 24, 2021

No words would be enough to appreciate the decision taken by Tata Steel
Only TATA can take this decision and none else can.
It is heartwarming to see companies stand with their employees and their families in these difficult times.
