Comments submitted to the Ministry of Labour and Employment on the Draft Labour Code on Social Security, 2019 (24 October 2019)

We have provided our constructive comments on the Draft in response to the call for responses from stakeholders dated 17.09.2019. (Ministry of Labour and Employment , 2019) We have commented on the following aspects of the Draft, namely: 1. The need for greater clarity on institutions set up under the Draft, particularly the Central Board of Trustees and the National Social Security Board for Unorganised Workers. 2. The definition of “worker” and “employee” under the present draft.
