More than 200 state laws and 40 central laws create collaborating jurisdictions; thus, reforms were necessary to put them all under a unified framework for the protection of a few of the mother law codes. Disputed termination of employment is addressed in several new sections added to the code. In a first in the history of labour law, social security rights have been extended to workers in the unorganised sector, including Migrant Workers, Platform Workers, etc. The Central Government would establish a "Social Security Fund" for Unorganised workers, as stated in this code. Workers from other states have also been given access to the benefits of the Public Distribution System. In addition, we must ensure that migrant workers have access to adequate housing and financial services. A statute that secures the employment rights of women in both the city and the country. As per the cultivation of the paper, it is explored that Labour Reform desperately needed. Working hours need to be changed, and a new work culture needs to be established in light of the current climate. Additional protections need to be defined for migrant workers, and particular legislation needs to be adopted to secure the safety and security of women in the workplace.
