Handbook on New Labour Codes

A ready reference for CXOs and public policy professionals highlighting key changes in the legal framework for the IT and BPM industry


April 29, 2024


India's economic development is closely linked to its workforce's productivity and welfare. Recognizing the crucial role of progressive labor laws in both protecting workers and creating a favorable business climate, the Indian government has introduced four major Labour Codes which represent a significant overhaul, aimed at simplifying and updating the nation's labor regulations.

Nishith Desai Associates, in collaboration with NASSCOM, has developed a Handbook on Labour Codes to serve as a reference for industry experts. This guide focuses specifically on the changes affecting the Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) sectors and outlines the major reforms introduced by these codes: the Code on Wages, the Code on Social Security, the Code on Industrial Relations, and the Code on Occupational Safety, Health, and Working Conditions.

This handbook provides a concise and comprehensive review of the new laws, transforming complex legal jargon into actionable insights for businesses. It aims to help them adeptly navigate the changing labor landscape.
