Labour laws to be recast into five codes to ensure clarity

The government plans to push through labour reforms by revamping existing laws into five broad codes dealing with key issues, as recommended by a panel more than a decade ago, to introduce uniformity of terms and definitions and remove anomalies. All the existing 44 laws will be reclassified into these categories, marking another step in the series of labour reforms kickstarted by the BJP government aimed at redefining them and bringing about greater clarity. The government's plan is based on the Second National Labour Commission's report of 2002, which suggested there should be five groups of laws pertaining to industrial relations, wages, social security, safety and welfare, and working conditions.
