The All India Organisation of Employers (AIOE) jointly with FICCI on Friday organized virtual session ‘Position of the Contract Labour Under Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code 2020’ to deliberate on the new Labour Codes particularly the contract labour dynamics. The Code has further expanded the scope of engaging contract labour, noted the industry experts.
Dr Rajen Mehrotra, Former Sr. Specialist Employers Activities ILO and Former HR Head ACC Ltd said that there has been an increase in the number of informal workers working in the formal sector. “Enterprises mostly increased hiring contract labour after the Supreme Court’s verdict on 30 August 2001 (Steel Authority of India Ltd and others v/s National Union Waterfront Workers and others),” he said.
