Chennai : Aparajitha Corporate Services Private Limited, the country’s no.1 company for Compliance, today organised its’ 60 Minutes Compliance’ Webinar which discussed the Labour Codes in detail, highlighting how it derived from the existing 29 Central Labour Laws without compromising its aspect with regard to social security.
Mr.Viswanathan Vasudevan, Group Legal Consultant, Smollan Group India (JV of HUL) was the esteemed Guest Speaker and Mr. K Varadan, Chief Consultation Officer, Aparajitha Corporate Services Private Limited was the moderator of this session.
The Code on Social Security introduced four bills in the year September 19, 2020, by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, with an aim to simplify labour law compliance. These Codes regulate (i) Wages, (ii) Industrial Relations, (iii) Social Security, and (iv) Occupational Safety, Health, and Working Conditions.
This webinar featured an in-depth panel discussion on
- Various internal compliance process
- Applicability of provisions
- Merits & demerits
- Significant implications benefits related to the Code on Social Security
Commenting on the new implications Mr. Nagaraj Krishnan, Managing Director, Aparajitha Corporate Services Private Limited said, “the goal is to stretch out social security to all employees and workers either in the organised or unorganised sector, though the state has an obligation on checking the welfare of the employees, the primary responsibility still lies with employers since they’re taking advantage of workers’ productivity. Employment should have the freedom to take ownership and responsibility for providing social security to their workers. I also observe still a major portion of the specialists in these new organizations was not covered under any of the current laws. I hope this new Social Security Code expands the scope of Social Security by providing for the registration of all types of workers including gig workers, unorganised workers and platform workers. Therefore, I strongly believe that the new social security code is a welcome change”.
The webinar session, garnered a huge response of 1090 attendees, including HR experts and mid and senior-level workforce across different industry areas.
The ’60 Minutes Compliance’ is a structured monthly webinar since 2020. The session will have a compilation of previous discussions on the labour code or the new topic accordingly.
