Apart from this, the government is working towards implementing a uniform minimum wage programme. It is also preparing to implement an occupational safety, health and working condition code (OSH) to regulate wages.

OSH was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 23 July 2019. This code is being prepared by combining 13 labour laws.

Several other provisions have been added to the proposed law. For example, provisions like appointment letter, annual free checkup for every employee have been added to this code.
