Under the OSH Code, an employer has to mandatorily issue a letter of appointment in a format that has been prescribed by the government to every employee. Thus, even if an employee has already been issued an appointment letter, prior to the new laws coming into effect, then a new appointment letter will have to be issued within three months of effective date of new law.
Hence, it is imperative for employers to identify and understand the changes required under the Labour Code, be in a state of readiness to ensure compliance, and also keep their employees informed.
