You cannot get any exemption from appointing a welfare officer. If you have people having qualification prescribed for the position of welfare officer redesignate him as Welfare Officer or appoint a new person for that post from outside. If the qualification prescribed is MSW/ degree in law or PG Diploma in Personnel Management and Industrial Relations, then you cannot dilute it by employing a person holding MBA even from a very reputed Institution. An HR Manager cannot act as Welfare Officer simply due to the reason that the latter is a statutory position.
