About Event  | Registration Form | Labour Code on Wages 2018 | Agenda


The Ministry of Labour and Employment, GOI has introduced the Code on Wages Bill 2017 in Lok Sabha on 10.08.2017 as a part of its often stated aim of reforming labour laws and improving the ‘ease of doing business’.

The code on Wages Bill 2017 subsumes four existing Laws, viz. The Minimum Wages Act, 1948; the Payment of Wages Act, 1936; the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 and the Equal Remuneration Act, 1976
. After the enactment of the Code on Wages, all these four Acts will get repealed. The codification of the labour laws will remove the multiplicity of definitions and authorities leading to ease of compliance without comprising wage security and social security to the workers.

At present, the provision of the Minimum Wages Act and the Payment of Wages Act do not cover substantial number of workers, as the applicability of both these Acts is restricted to the Scheduled Employments/Establishment. However, the new Code on Wages intends to ensure minimum wages to one and all and timely payment of wages to all employees irrespective of the sector of employment without any wage ceiling failing enhanced penalties including imprisonment. These provisions will have far reaching implications.

Keeping this in view, ASSOCHAM is organizing one day National Workshop on Labour Code on Wages on 19th January, 2018, ASSOCHAM House, New Delhi. The workshop will be addressed by the experts drawn from private sector as well as the government officials, who have been architect of the code.
