Lockout means temporary closing of place of employment. Lay-off means the failure, refusal or inability of an employer on account of shortage of raw materials, shortage of power, excess of finished goods, no market demand for finished products . In lockout he establishment is comletely closed In layoff establishment is continuing its operation. The general causes of lock-out are political, disturbances with trade union leaders, rigid policies of management, etc., besides economic problems. In lay-off, the employer is unable to provide employment to one or more workmen due to several reasons generally genuine and owe to economic factors, viz. shortage of coal, raw materials, excess production, shortage of electricity, break-down of machinery, Government policy, no-demand of the finished products in the market, shortage of finance, shortage of space in the storage, etc. Lock out is applicable to entire industry. Lay-off may be applicable to a group of workers or to entire workers, or to the workers to one shift, or some shifts, under certain circumstances
