Labor Code: Government finalizes new labor rules, will be implemented soon, know special things

The Ministry of Labor and Employment has finalized the rules under the four Labor Codes.

The Ministry of Labor and Employment has finalized the rules under the four labor codes. This has paved the way to turn the reforms into reality by issuing notification of them to be brought into implementation soon. Four comprehensive codes on salary, industrial relations, social security and occupational safety and health and working conditions (OSH) have already been notified after obtaining the President’s assent. But the rules need to be notified to implement these four codes. Now the ministry has completed the consultation process on the draft rules of the four codes.

Labor Secretary Apoorva Chandra said, “We have finalized the necessary rules to implement the four labor codes.” We are ready to notify these rules. States are doing their work to strengthen the rules under the four codes.





Parliament had passed four broad codes on pay, industrial relations, social security and occupational safety and health and working conditions (OSH), which would eventually rationalize 44 central labor laws. The Parliament passed the Code on Pay in 2019, while the other three Codes received approval from both houses in 2020.

The ministry wants to implement all four codes at once. After creating these rules, the codes can now be notified to all four simultaneously.
