New Labor codes


In 2019, the Ministry of Labor and Employment consolidated 29 central laws and 4 new labor codes were introduced by government –Code on Wages, Code on Social Security, Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code and Industrial Relations Code.


While there have been mixed reports in the media on the likely date of notification and effective date of implementation, given the far-reaching repercussions on employers and employees we think organizations should start early to be better prepared for the changes as and when they get notified


Mercer is already partnering with over 40+ organizations, helping them with end to end implementation of all new labor codes, including: compensation restructuring, regulatory analysis, financial implication of gratuity and leave, compliance checklist and Support in designing change communication plan.
