Senior officers from the departments of Provident Fund, Factories, Labour, and Insurance have asked Human Resource (HR) managers to update their knowledge of different Acts and laws and work for the welfare of employees.
The managers got their doubts cleared on amended laws, schemes and benefits being extended by the State and Central governments through Employees State Insurance Corporation from officers of the departments concerned at an interactive session organised by The Employers’ Federation of Southern India here on Saturday.
Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Commissioner of Labour S.Y. Srinivas observed that many HR professionals lacked knowledge of fundamental labour laws.
He said the managers would be able to render justice only when they have knowledge of relevant laws.
Regional Provident Fund Commissioner-II T. Indira said officials and industry managements were collectively responsible for extending welfare schemes to the employees.
ESIC Joint Director J.S. Murthy said 6 crore employees across the country were getting benefited from the corporation.
Deputy Chief Inspector of Factories M. Mohan Rao appealed to HR managers to check the working and health conditions at the work spot. The Factories Department was organising awareness programmes to enlighten the managements as well as workforce on the Factories Act.
Mr. Rao appealed to the industries/factories managements to make use of the services of Industrial Emergency Response Centre (IERC), set up at Ibrahimpatnam, which would provide technical support during emergencies.
EFSI honorary secretary S.L.N. Murthy asked the managers to maintain good relations with the officials and explain to the staff the schemes being offered by the government.
Hyderabad Industries Limited Associate Manager-HR V. Kaleswara Rao coordinated the event.
