As an HR professional , there are several important compliance regulations and practices that you should be aware of and follow. Here are some key HR compliance areas to consider for a healthcare-related startup company in Bangalore with around 30 employees:

2. Statutory Compliance: Comply with various statutory requirements, such as obtaining and maintaining necessary licenses and registrations, adhering to labor laws, and following applicable industrial and employment laws.

3. Minimum Wages and Payment of Wages: Ensure that employees are paid at least the minimum wages mandated by the state government and that their wages are paid within the specified timeframes.

4. Provident Fund (PF): Register your company for the Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) and ensure that all eligible employees are enrolled and their contributions are deposited on time. The current contribution rate is 12% of basic wages, dearness allowance, and retaining allowance.

Ensure that all eligible employees are enrolled, and their contributions are deducted and deposited on time. The current contribution rate is 1.75% of wages.

6. Professional Tax: Deduct and deposit professional tax from employees' salaries as per the state government regulations. The rates vary based on the employee's salary slab.
