A. Thiruthi & Kanishka Sakshi, UPES Dehradun


Indian labour law is a term that refers to the legislation that governs labour in India. In this research paper, the researchers basically deal with labour laws. The objective of the researchers is to analyse the history of labour laws in India. The research paper will talk about various categorizations of labour laws. It will talk about what all laws are included in the labour laws. It will also discuss the present policy discussion in India over labour law reform.

This paper will also discuss the steps and role of government in the labour legislations. For a long period of time, female workers faced discrimination in the workplace, and it was widely believed that gender equality was not realised even at the hands of judges. If we truly wish to elevate the status of female workers, we must assign women prominent jobs. Because females are biologically distinct from males, equality here refers to an equal function in light of this distinction, but salary disparity constitutes discrimination.

The researchers emphasise in this research paper the provisions of labour laws pertaining to female workers and how they contribute to maintaining and sustaining socioeconomic justice and equality in order to preserve and increase the standard of living in our society. It also talks about the labour laws present scenario in covid pandemic.

Keywords: Labour law, government, female workers, discrimination and pandemic.
