Interactive Labour Awareness Workshop on “The Code on Wages 2019”

January 22 @ 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm

India’s new codified labour law – The Code on Wages, 2019 (“Code on Wages”) has been approved by both the Houses of the Parliament and received Presidential assent on August 8, 2019. The Code on Wages now merely awaits its effective date, which will be notified by the Government separately.

Once the effective date of the Code on Wages is notified, it shall subsume and repeal four important labour laws in India: (1) The Payment of Wages Act, 1936; (2) The Minimum Wages Act, 1948; (3) The Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 and (4) The Equal Remuneration Act, 1976. Given that the effective date of the Code on Wages can be expected anytime from now, it is critical for employers to understand the new law and the compliances there under in order to be able to undergo a smooth transition.

In this backdrop, NASSCOM in association with law firm Nishith Desai Associates, is organizing an interactive workshop on January 22, 2020 (Wednesday) from 2:30 pm onwards, to discuss (a) the potential impact of the Code on Wages upon employers; (b) the key features of the Code on Wages and (c) the important employer compliances there under.

The workshop will touch upon the following important topics.

  • Coverage and Applicability
  • Key Features of the Code on Wages
  • Compliances for Employers under the Code on Wages
  • Deviations from the MWA, POWA, ERA and POBA
  • Potential impact of the Code on Wages upon employer
