KOCHI: The Kerala Private Hospitals’ Association (KPHA) has approached the Kerala High Court, seeking to quash amendment to the Minimum Wage Rules-1958 directing hospital managements to disclose the salary package/benefits of staff.  “The amendment to the Minimum Wage Rules is not only cumbersome and practically unworkable, but also prejudicial and destructive of the business interests. Under the amended rule, managements will have to divulge and expose private and confidential data that are extraneous to the mandate of Minimum Wage Rules,” stated the petition.

“Disclosure of confidential information would lead to violation of the right of hospital management to protect trade secrets and business strategies,” stated the petition.
