In this issue of First Notes, we aim to summarise key features of the Code on Social Security, 2020
With an aim to rationalise labour laws prevalent in India, the Ministry of Labour and Employment proposed four labour codes. These labour codes relate to the following topics:
-The Code on Wages
-The Occupational Health, Safety and Working Conditions Code
-The Industrial Relations Code
-The Code on Social Security.
While the Code on Wages received the assent of the President of India on 8 August 2019, the other three codes were presented in the monsoon session of parliament held in September 2020.
Recently, the three labour codes i.e. the Occupational Health, Safety and Working Conditions Code, the Industrial Relations Code and the Code on Social Security have been passed by the parliament and have also received the assent of the President of India on 28 September 2020.
In this issue of First Notes, we aim to summarise key features of the Code on Social Security, 2020 along with highlighting the key changes introduced vis-à-vis existing provisions under various laws.
