Apart from ESIC, GRATUITY and EMPLOYEES COMPENSATION ACT, the PF's EMPLOYEES DEPOSIT LINKED INSURANCE SCHEME (EDLI) is also amended thereby increasing the quantum of benefit to one lakh from 50,000/- in case of death of an employee.

ALSO the Industrial Disputes ACT 1947 is in the process of getting amended as The Industrial Disputes (Amendment) Bill 2010 is passed byTHE RAJYA SABHA ON 3.8.10

Hope, this information will be useful to you.
