Why Statutory Compliance Mandatory?

  • Statutory Compliance relates to the various labour laws prevalent in India.
  • These laws change on a State and National level, and it is mandatory for companies to obey them.
  • Non-Compliance can be the basis for financial and reputational risks for organizations.
  • Non-compliance with these regulations can land a company into legal trouble such as penalties, fines, or worse.
  • Any organization that hires employees or workers and pays them salary or wages must comply with labour laws with regards to monetary compensation, payment of taxes, protection and safety of employees, and fairness of labour.
