COVID-19 AND LABOUR LAW COMPLIANCE – VERSION 2.0
In view of the tremendous success of the ‘60 Minutes Compliance’ webinar held on April 9, 2020 and requests pouring in from several industry quarters and professionals to organise a second session in order to address few more pertinent questions pertaining to Labour Law Compliances vis-à-vis COVID-19, Aparajitha Corporate Services Private Limited, the country’s No. 1 company for Compliance, today organised Version 2.0 of the ‘60 Minutes Compliance’ webinar to discuss the impact on Labour Law Compliances due to the Coronavirus lockdown. These sessions are aimed towards benefitting the companies and their Human Resource fraternity by providing several guidelines in order to help them survive through the COVID-19 crisis.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Nagaraj Krishnan, Managing Director, Aparajitha Corporate Services Private Limited said, “We are extremely delighted with the overwhelming response we received for the webinar on the impact of COVID-19 on Labour Law Compliances. The ‘60 Minutes Compliance’ webinars series are in line with Aparajitha’s vision for continuous endeavor in bringing knowledge expertise on Regulatory compliance to organisations, given the fact that the co-existence of Labour and Capital is of paramount importance at all times, and more so when posed with a global challenge such as COVID-19. Version 2.0 of the webinar held today was more of a response session to hundreds of queries which came in from the organisations, which could not be addressed in the earlier webinar due to time constraints.”
Some of the key aspects today’s webinar highlighted and addressed include…
§ Key legislations based on which the measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 are taken
§ Type of industries which are given relaxation
§ Precautions to be taken by an establishment in case if it is functioning
