Labour and Employment Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar today introduced the Industrial Relation Code bill-2019 in the Lok Sabha. The Bill provides for setting up of a two-member tribunal (in place of one-member), thus introducing a concept that some of the important cases will be adjudicated jointly and the rest by a single-member resulting speedier disposal of cases. It also said the re-skilling fund is to be utilised for crediting to workers in the manner to be prescribed.

The bill also provides for definition of Fixed Term Employment and that it would not lead to any notice period and payment of compensation on retrenchment excluded. It also provides vesting of powers with the government officers for adjudication of disputes involving penalty as fines thereby lessening the burden on tribunal. Earlier, the opposition parties demanded to send the bill to Parliament Standing committee alleging the bill is anti labour.
