L&S Employment Law Microsite

Indian employment laws are in a transitory phase, with over 20 employment laws being subsumed in and replaced by 4 labour codes. Employers would need to revise and restructure their internal policies to be compliant with the new regulatory framework under the codes.

Our team offers end-to-end support with employment law advisory and compliance, across employee and company lifecycles.

In addition, the team offers crucial transition services, to assist employers in restructuring their internal processes and policies to ensure compliance with the upcoming labour codes.

The L&S employment law team has also set up an employment law microsite, with the intent to provide pragmatic guidance on key aspects of Indian employment laws, and to act as an assistive tool to understand the key components to be included in internal employee / HR policies and employment contracts under existing laws and the upcoming labour codes. The content includes FAQs and guidance notes on key employment law related issues, notes on the prominent features of the new labour codes, and compliance calendars enumerating the various compliances under the codes.

The microsite is available here.
