About The Event

Labour laws are one of the most complex and hotly debated issues in India. A labour surplus economy, such as India, should be protective of its workers but laws solely guided by this principle makes it difficult for businesses to operate. This acted as a major hindrance in the expansion of the business causing limited employment opportunities, hampering growth and expansion and effectively making both parties, i.e. employer and employee worse off. In India, labour is a subject of the Concurrent list and hence has both Central and State governed laws. The earlier labour laws were archaic and in need of a serious update that the new labour legislation provided by the Centre.

Workers are often rightly identified as the lifeblood of any organization or industry. In parallel, a well-protected, nurtured and skilled workforce attracts investment to a country since this makes it easier to do business. These realities must have provided an impetus for last year’s regulatory reforms that merged 44 Indian labour laws into four labour codes. While the step drew both cheers and criticism, most people would agree that these reforms were long overdue. Labour regulations in India are as sensitive a subject as they are complex and cumbersome.

The four Labour Codes provide greater autonomy to the employers thereby providing opportunities for growth and expansion. India today is not what it used to be when its initial set of labour laws was crafted. The country, which once relied heavily on manufacturing, is now largely a service-led economy. With the IT boom in the past two decades prompted a pressing need of reviewing the set-up of laws governing the Workforce, and also there was a growing demand from the people to review it.

In an environment with the potential to grow rapidly and a rising information communication technologies (ICT) power that are also one the world’s biggest start-up hubs, India houses flourishing new industries, such as cab-hailing, food delivery and e-commerce. As these neo-industries take shape and help expand India’s economy, labour regulations must cater to their workers’ needs and be cognizant of emerging businesses and organizational models. This calls for consistency and the elimination of all vagueness in existing labour norms and rules.

With the current changed and consolidated Labour law reforms, Alliance School of Law has taken up the remarkable responsibility in the Interest of the Nation to make people across the industry and academia to understand these reforms and help them in the implementation of the same.

The government, having embarked on bold labour reforms, has taken its first big swing at simplifying labour regulations in the country and it would be just right for academia to shed more light on these recent reforms.

As we await the notification of rules for the labour codes by the government, one hopes that the country leverages this opportunity to create regulations that would not only support the current trajectory of India’s economy powered by its high-potential neo-industries but also cater to the requirements of tomorrow’s workforce.

A vision is all it takes to accomplish a goal, and with that in mind Alliance University is organising a full-day workshop/event on the “Recent Amendments in Labour Laws” on the 17th of July 2021.

This event would witness leading academicians from National Law Universities, Leaders of Trade Unions and Corporates shed light on these recent reforms while covering all the four codes in detail followed by a power-packed Panel comprising of top executives to discuss how these reforms have helped in the Ease of Doing Business in India.

The event is aimed at professionals to understand these reforms in a simplified way as sometimes they are hard to comprehend and misinterpreted.
