Labour Laws : Sector-Wise Ecosystem

Between 47 central labour laws and 200 state labour laws, India has an over regulated and poorly governed labour law system. Our labour laws have remained dysfunctional, disharmonized, protracted and overreaching. These multiplicity of rules and procedural delays impose unreasonable legislations and transaction cost on businesses. The complex anatomy comprising harassment, corruption and compliance overreach chokes businesses on productivity and competitiveness. TeamLease Labour Law Report 2017 also profiles the labour law ecosystem by State and by laws v/s demand and supply of skills. With a few exceptions (notably, Andhra Pradesh), States scoring well on their labour law regime parameters carry Demand-Supply surplus as well. These States are well positioned to reap handsome rewards from reforming their labour law regimes. At least 32 State and Union Territory governments submitted evidence of implementation of over 7000 reforms. A total of 6069 reforms were approved and implemented. The national implementation average has increased from 32% to 48.93%. The result of the assessment demonstrates that States have increasingly risen to addressing the challenge of making it easier to do business.

The jury is out on whether the major government initiatives of today and tomorrow – particularly, Demonetization and Goods and Services Tax – will propel the economy and, more importantly, create jobs. What is evident already is that investments – private and foreign – are the prime mover revving up the jobs engines of today.

Employment outlook in India has hit a three-and-a-half-year high, driven by positive economic sentiment owing to a combination of factors including substantial private and foreign investment, rapid growth of knowledge services and the government’s continued focus on Make in India and Startup India programmes.

Summary of the Report:

  • Employment and Business Outlook increase incrementally from an already heady positive sentiment of the previous half year, and with sectors balancing it out in the midst of significant investment and deal flow activity. Employment Outlook increments by 2 percentage points to 95 and Business Outlook increments by the same margin to 97.
  • As many sectors are optimistic about hiring as those that are not. The half year forecast is an exception in that Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals (4 points up to 94) and Telecommunication (4 points up to 87), two old war horses, trump new age sectors IT and Ecommerce and Internet Startups (up 1 point each to 99 and 87 resp). It is to be noted that job growths are on a down trend for many sectors – and this counterbalances the Outlook statistics for each sector.
  • Sentiment is up, yet again, for Small businesses by a significant measure of 3 points (up to 72) compared to the previous half year. That none of the businesses surveyed in the Metros is planning to scale down on hiring is a bright spot on the 6-month horizon. Businesses are rather bullish on hiring in the Tier-2 and Tier-3 towns (2 points up each, to 27 and 11, respectively).
  • In direct contradiction to the previous half year, businesses are looking to scale down Entry Level hiring by the same significant measure they increased it by. This head of hiring is therefore down 5 points to 65. A significant increase in Senior Level hiring sentiment (up 4 points to 36) is a highlight for this half year.
  • Our study assesses eight new sectors in this edition of the report – BPO, KPO, Educational Services, Media and Entertainment, Travel and Hospitality, Agrochemicals, Construction and Real Estate and Power and Energy. The Net Employment and Business Outlook measures do not take these sectors into account this time.
  • The top three sectors (by city) in terms of employment outlook growth are -
    • Mumbai: Healthcare & Pharma (4%) / Ecommerce & internet startups (3%) / Telecommunication (2%)
    • Delhi: Financial Services (2%) / Retail (2%) / Ecommerce & internet startups (1%)
    • Bangalore: Ecommerce & internet startups (4%) / Healthcare & Pharma (3%) / IT (3%)
    • Kolkata: None
    • Chennai: Healthcare & Pharma (1%) / IT (1%)
    • Pune: IT (2%) / Retail (2%) / Ecommerce & internet startups (2%)
    • Hyderabad: IT (4%) / Ecommerce & internet startups (3%) / Retail, Telecommunication, Healthcare & Pharma (2%)
    • Ahmedabad: Telecommunication (4%) / IT (4%) / Ecommerce & internet startups (2%)

The 2012 edition of the TeamLease Jobs and Salaries Primer – an annual report we bring out – sprung a surprise. The analysis showed up a sharp rise in salaries of a bunch of blue collar job profiles. Further exploration proved that the phenomenon was not restricted just a handful of job profiles.

Many Blue Collar profiles commanded salaries that were appreciably higher than those for White Collar profiles, if not similar. The differential was observed for many job profiles and ranged in magnitude from nil to significant.

In this research report, we explore salary data related to vocationally skilled blue collar job profiles and those related to professionally qualified MBAs and Engineers. The comparison is aimed at identifying specific sectors and job profiles where salaries have either achieved equity or where salaries for vocationally skilled profiles have even overtaken either those for Engineers and / or those for MBAs.

The Inflection Point

The report objectives are to understand –

  • How salaries compare between vocationally skilled profiles, Engineers and MBAs
  • Carry out the comparion by sector and record observations of where the salary inflections lie
  • Draw broad and sector specific conclusions about salary trends

Summary of the Report:

  • Adoption of GST will lead to an 11 per cent growth in hiring across sectors. Further, from a region perspective though marginally South India will top the job generation chart.
  • Automobiles, logistics, home decor, e-commerce, media and entertainment, and cement sectors are projected to create 11-18 per cent additional jobs annually after implementation of GST.
  • In the case of IT/ITeS and BFSI segments, the growth rate has been pegged between 10 and 12.5 per cent.
  • Around 10 to 13 per cent additional jobs are expected to be created every year by consumer durables, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications sectors.
  • The predictability of cost of products manufactured or services rendered across the country would improve enterprise productivity.

According to Rituparna Chakraborty, EVP & Co-Founder, TeamLease, "The uniformity and the reduction in the average tax burden offered by GST will provide a great impetus to employment creation."
