Labour Laws: The Evolution & Dilution of Laws
Volume III, Issue III, 2020
The ongoing pandemic is hitting life across the globe – toppling structures and economies globally. This article highlights the overview of the ongoing amendments in the labour laws across the state for alluring the foreign investment because Indian economy is reeling under a demand depression, rising unemployment, and lowering of industrial output and profits. Specifically, tweaking of welfare labour laws would deliver a big blow socially, jeopardising social prospects of the working class of the country. Labour law defines the rights and obligations as workers, union members and employers in the workplace. Minimum wages laws are constitutional right bestowed upon art. 23 of the Indian constitution and any violation is a fundamental violation of the livelihood for the working class. This article states the long-term approach which should be validated rather than short-run remedies because the peoples from the unorganised sector will play a key role in national reconstruction required after the pandemic, and attending to them at this hour is the key.
