Everything that you need to know about Minimum Wages Notifications.
The Minimum Wages Act, 1948 (“MWA”) governs the computation of minimum wages to the workers based on the ‘skill matrix classification’ viz. unskilled, semi-skilled, skilled and highly skilled worker.
The Code on Wages, 2019, which is yet to be brought into force, amalgamates the provisions of MWA along with the Payment of Wages Act, the Payment of Bonus Act and the Equal Remuneration Act.
The Central and State Governments has published its notifications on the latest minimum wages that are prescribed for the respective workers as classified by the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
