Each organization may wind up paying more and written consent from employees for the extra work or overtime. As per the National Statistical Office’s (NSO) Periodic Labour Force Survey 2017-18, workers can only work for more than 48 hours in a week, that is more than prescribed time-limit.
The new law in the Code on Occupational Safety Health and Working Conditions 2019 states that labourers will be paid twice their compensation if they are permitted to work longer than required. The complete pay will include basic pay, dearness allowance and retention pay component.
Labor and Employment Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar presented the bill in the Lok Sabha a week ago.
The study by NSO demonstrated that salaried or regular pay worked around 53-56 hours every week. Independently employed individuals worked 46-54 hours per week, while easygoing labourers worked 43-48 hours every week.
The Govt has additionally expelled a provision that allows the number of hours a labourer is permitted to work.
The draft Bill was made public for remarks a year ago. It allows labourers won’t be permitted to work for over 100 hours a quarter, which was in accordance with the law set up since 2016. The number of working hours should be more than 10 hours in a day.
