rkn61Implications of the Suspension/Labour Law Relaxation:-
In an official release of May 06, 20202, which is based on the decision of the UP Council of Ministers, the suspension of labour laws has been justified by stating that it is the need of the hour in order to give concessions to ongoing and new industrial establishments, businesses and factories3. While this move by the Government aims to revive and boost businesses and industries, it has received criticism on the ground that the Ordinance and relaxations of key labour laws infringe on worker rights.
What remains to be seen is the manner of implementation of the Ordinance and notifications and whether these will be challenged in Indian courts. However, it appears that other States are likely to follow in a similar direction to suspend / relax labour laws in order to attract investment. Interestingly, this move goes against the Centre's attempt to codify the labour laws via the Code of Wages, 2019, which received presidential assent last year in August. The question then arises is what alternative routes must the Government seek to try to balance the interests of the employers and employees/workmen?
