The Wage Code conundrum has really got companies scratching their heads, as they have to be compliant with the provisions of the code, yet there seems to be too many considerations to make before taking a decision. From an employee’s perspective, organizations need to ensure a soft landing when it comes to new compensation structure without making a huge material difference in the take home salaries of their staff. From employer’s perspective, the contribution towards provident fund is also likely to increase as the PF would get calculated on the expanded definition of wages. Other big ticket components under analysis include retrospective increase in liabilities for defined benefit plan such as gratuity and leave encashment if organizations have a large employee base.
