Starts at 2:30 PM · Ends at 3:30 PM, IST (Asia/Calcutta)

The Ministry of Labour & Employment, Govt. of India has taken steps for simplification, amalgamations and rationalization of Central Labour Laws and replacing them with 4 Labour codes viz.


  1. Code on Social Security & Welfare
  2. Code on Industrial Relations
  3. Code on Wages
  4. Code on Occupational Safety, Health & Working Conditions

The preliminary draft Labour Code on Social Security and Welfare (Labour Code) has been prepared by the Ministry of Labour & Employment. The code amalgamates all existing labor laws related to social security (total 15 labour laws including EPF & MP Act, ESI Act, Payment of Gratuity Act etc.)


The Labour Code is an attempt to simplify, rationalize and consolidate the hitherto fragmented laws to make them less complex for easier comprehension implementation and enforcement.  The code has envisaged an all-encompassing social security regime based on principles such as:


  • Universalization to entire workforce
  • Integration of fragmented schemes
  • Decentralization of administration 
  • A rights based approach.

The preliminary draft of the code on social security and welfare is available online
