Every business establishment, whether profit or non profit, engages in its daily business, activities involving legal obligations and rights. The organization may need to enter into several agreements and document them for clarity of understanding. With on going phenomenon of Liberalisation, Privatisation and Globalisation, effective management of commercial contracts is undergoing a paradigm change the world over. In increasing competitive market place, the outsourcing of services to a third party is more important. Outsourcing can be critical in assisting with the control of cost and enabling efforts to be focused on core business.

Employment and Labour Laws / HR & Admin Department

The last few years have seen huge changes in employment of outsourced associates. With the emergence of competition in seeking and retaining efficient manpower, compliance with applicable legalization for management of employees and outsource associates is becoming more important. In most of the companies either HR or Administration departments handle employment related to compliance. However, we believe that the core competencies of these departments are better utilized in areas like employee recruitment, retention and performance related matters. De Jure is well placed to take on board all legal related matters and working in close collaboration with your company’s HR to ensure that statutory obligations are professionally managed. We will ensure that your business complies with the bewildering array of laws, rules, procedures, registration and directives. This will mean filing of applictions, registration, obtaining certificates, payment of statutory fees and contribution of funds, maintaining the registers, and filing of returns periodically. For instance, here are a few labour laws which are applicable to all businesses, irrespective of the area of operations.

  1. Shops and Establishment Act.
  2. The Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1952.
  3. The Employees State Insurance Act, 1948.

  5. The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961.
