Form IV A is filed pursuant to Order 7a, Schedule 1 of the Industrial Employment (standing orders ) Central Rules, 1946. As per the order, a workman can work in more than one shift at the discretion of the employer.

No shift working shall be discontinued without two months' notice being given in writing to the workmen prior to such discontinuance, provided that no such notice shall be necessary if the closing of the shift is under an agreement with the workmen affected. If shift working is restarted, the workmen shall be given notice and re-employed in accordance with the provisions of the said Act and the said Rules.
