Govt notifies draft rules of labour code on Occupational Safety and Health, concerns remain
New Delhi: The Union government on Friday notified the draft rules of the labour code on occupational safety and working condition, which promise an appointment letter to all employees, single registration and return filing for firms, a safety committee in big companies, and travel allowances to a segment of migrants, among other things.
The draft rules are, however, silent on the promised database of inter-state migrants and on why healthcare checkup provisions are restricted to workers above 45 years, among others
“The salient features of the draft rules include appointment letter in prescribed format including designation, category of skill, wages and avenue for achieving higher wages and higher position to every employee of an establishment within three months of the rules coming into force. No employee will be employed in any establishment unless he has been issued a letter of appointment," the labour ministry said.
