Legal Challenges In Addressing Emerging Occupational Hazards

Country India
Abstract Unpaid labour, also known as "invisible labour," is a significant issue in India, with 90% of this work being performed for no compensation, such as childcare, housework, and elder care. The National Statistical Office's first Time Use Survey (TUS) revealed that 38.2% of people aged six or older were working or performing related activities in India. In this group, females were more likely to provide unpaid domestic assistance than males, with a higher percentage of females in rural areas. The COVID-19 pandemic has had severe impacts on the lives of migrants, particularly those who have relocated from one country to another. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the closure of schools, workplaces, and transportation facilities, forcing many migrants to return home with their families. The Code on Work Related Security, Wellbeing, and Working Conditions, 2020, defines inter-state transient labourers as those who have been hired by an employer or temporary worker for working in another state and receive compensation within the maximum amount allowed by the central government. The Niti Aayog's draft on Vagrant Work Approach aims to better recognize migrants' commitment to the economy and support them in their efforts. It proposes a modern National Movement Approach and the establishment of a unique unit within the Work Service to work closely with other services, aiming to provide a comprehensive understanding of the causes and impacts of relocation and the necessary interventions.
