Daksha Fellowship is organizing a #DakshaMasterclass on labour regulations.

Date: Wednesday, 26 August 2020

Time: 6:30 PM IST

Theme: Changing contours of Labour regulation in India

Labour reforms have been in the policy pipeline in India during the last few years. The need for bringing in social security, welfare for unorganised sector workers and ensuring safety standards are major discussion points. But, at the same time, the need for making labour law business-friendly raises questions on the interest of workers being sacrificed. The gig economy is identified as a focal point for our discussion in this context.

The platform economy brings in a drastic change in the manner the business eco-system operates. It throws open pertinent questions for existing labour regulations to grapple with. For example, how do Uber, Ola and other mobility players perceive labour benefits when driver-partners are gig-workers? Do we have to change the existing conceptualisation of labour law and regulations when made applicable to platform aggregators and gig economy players? If changes are needed, how do we navigate?

Speaker: Dr Suchithra Menon, Assistant Professor, Daksha Fellowship

The masterclass will provide a snapshot on:

  • Labour law reform- Are we in the right direction?
  • Relaxing labour regulations and consequential labour welfare concerns
  • The gig economy and new concerns for labour regulations that it presents
  • Regulatory propositions for the future of work
