Govt plans to implement all four labour codes in 2020-21

The government is planning to implement all the four labour codes on a single date in 2020-21, as per a report in Business Standard. The government believes that a single date for the implementation of all the four labour codes will be fruitful because it will ensure uniformity and will lead to an efficient execution. While the labour code on wages has already become a law, the remaining three codes each on industrial relations, social security and welfare and occupational safety, health and working conditions have been introduced in the Lok Sabha. After all the four codes become law, industry will have to apply for a single registration for labour laws instead of the need to do eight separate labour law registrations. However, the implementation of the Code on Wages Act, 2019, could face delay by at least one year from when it became a law.
