Your answer lies with the information technology act.2000
As per act if the Digital Signature (Not the scan copy/impression of the signatures) affixed on the signatures it is valid proof as admissible in the Court of Law.

As per Section 4 of the IT Act, 2000, clearly provides the following provison:
Legal recognition of electronic records
Where any law provides that information or any other matter shall be in writing or in the typewritten or printed form, then, notwithstanding anything contained in such law, such requirement shall be deemed to have been satisfied if such information or matter is-
(a) rendered or made available in an electronic form; and
(b) accessible so as to be usable for a subsequent reference.

Further Section 81 provides that
The provisions of this Act shall have effect notwithstanding anything inconsistent therewith contained in any other law for the time being in force.
Clear reading of these section clearly have an overriding effect on the other laws for the time in force in india.
Needless to say labour laws are also not an exception to the same.
