A petition has been led before the Supreme Court challenging the Constitutional validity of the notifications/ ordinances issued by various State Governments, suspending the operation of certain labour laws with respect to working hours, wages, health and safety conditions. 

The PIL has been led by a law student, Nandini Praveen through Advocate Nishe Rajen Shonker, assailing relaxation of labour laws in the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Goa and Assam, for having been issued without any authority of the law. 

It is primarily contended that Central labour laws cannot be abridged by way of executive orders issued by the states. The Petitioner has thus sought quashing of the impugned laws to the extent they are violative of the Constitutional principles and strict implementation of the Central Laws such as the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, the Factories Act, 1948, the Code of Wages Act, 2019 and all other laws on labour issues.
