ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
The Centre for Continuing Legal Education at the School of Law, Bennett University, is organising a Two-Day Workshop on Reforms in Labour and Industrial laws (Online) on 17th and 18th July 2021. The workshop aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the recent reforms in labour and industrial laws. India, one of the most labour-intensive countries of the world, has decided to replace its archaic 29 labour legislations with four labour codes, namely, The Code on Wages, 2019, The Industrial Relations Code, 2020, The Occupational Safety Health And Working Conditions Code, 2020 and The Code on Social Security, 2020. Along with reforms and consolidation of multiple laws into fewer legislations, these codes aim to ease doing business in India and a step towards digitalisation. While these codes are yet to be made effective, various stakeholders need to discuss and deliberate on the changes brought about by these enactments. Therefore, the workshop would provide an insight into the significant changes in labour and industrial laws and their impact on the industry. The workshop will comprehensively deal with various aspects, including wage laws, social security protection, occupational safety, terms of employment and relevant compliances under the labour code. The participants will also get an insight into the gender dimensions in labour legislations. Most importantly, the workshop will deliberate on the impact of the pandemic on the country’s labour population.
Who Should Attend?
Academicians, Government officials, Industry Personnel, Members of Legal Fraternity, and Students working on labour and industrial issues.
Registration for the Online Workshop is Free. However, for availing of the Certificate of Participation, a fee of Rs. 500 shall be required to be paid.
