For a long time, Labour laws in India have been due for revision. These improvements have been in the works for almost 20 years. These reforms are projected to result in four labour codes that address pay, social security, workplace safety, health and working conditions, and labour relations. These new labour laws are based on ILO standards and a collaborative process involving a variety of parties.
Some worldwide best practises, such as the use of an inspector-cum-facilitator to encourage compliance, are also taken into account. These new standards will replace 29 present central government labour laws in India once they become effective.
Labour laws have been so far prominent in influencing a large number of employees who always look out for insightful labour law videos pertaining to their own rights and duties. At LawWiser such issues can be comprehensively solved as they have renowned labour law firms that are further equipped with lawyers having a full-fledged detailed history of arguing and attending landmark cases.
Labour law videos are not limited to providing basic insights, but also gives labour law updates that fulfil needs as per the perspectives of both lawyers and the general audience.
Labour law updates are crucial in India as certain benefits such as provident fund and gratuity are included in an employee’s CTC, perks such as leave encashment and overtime, which are paid in addition to CTC, will raise recurrent and retroactive costs for employers. The labour regulations may have a major retrospective influence on gratuity charges for businesses, affecting accounting provisions for previous service periods. 
The rise in staff expenditures would have an influence on hiring plans and future increments, reducing the number of job openings.
LawWiser helps you navigate through such laws in the form of videos that are competent enough to absorb substantial information such as the Code of Wages Act.
