Dr. S. A. Thameemul Ansari

Abstract: The Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code 2020 is a code to consolidate and amend the laws which have been normally regulating the working conditions of the persons who are employed in various establishments. This code is a carefully - thought out one in order to ensure safety, security, and good hygiene in work environment. The occupational safety, Health and working conditions Code, 2020 is one of the three labor codes that are framed to condense and consolidate the huge canvas of labor legislation in India and this Code is understood to be streamlining labor compliance in addition to expanding social security network for the workers. The most important function of the new labor code is to ensure uniformity to the process of amendment and implement of labor laws throughout the country. As we are all aware labor laws are subjects which fall under concurrent list, the federal and state governments have to work in tandem with each other in the process of conceiving and implementing labor laws in the true spirit of constitutional values. In the recent times, we have seen several instances of conflict between the state and the centre particularly in the context of interpreting the provisions of labor laws and this goes against the stated objectives of labor laws. Hence, it is recommended that we should have greater sense of clarity with reference to these laws. The convoluted and notifications which are found to be overlapping in their applicability and jurisdiction hamper the spirit of labor laws. It is in this context the Code 2020 has to be placed for our critical review and interpretation. This paper examines the technical aspects of the Code 2020 in order to understand and appreciate the trajectory of evolution of the Code 2020
