  1. Govt to hire experts for framing rules of three labor codes

The labor ministry has sought application from legal experts that it aims to hire as consultants on a contractual basis to help the government frame rules of the three labor codes which have been recently passed by the Parliament.

The Parliament had recently passed the Industrial Relations Code, the Code in Social Security, and the Code on Occupational Safety, Health, and Working Condition following which they have been notified. The Code on Wages was passed and notified last year but has not been implemented so far.

Once the four Codes get implemented, the establishments will have to file a single return to the authorities, thereby significantly easing the compliance burden. Besides, there will be a floor level minimum wage with a statutory backing while the number of minimum wages across the country will reduce substantially to 12 from 540 under central laws and to 180-200 under the state laws compared to over 9,000 now.

  1. Plans afoot to implement all four labor codes from April 1

The Union labor ministry has intended to implement all the new labor codes together from April 1.
