Statutory Compliance

Statutory Compliance

With scores of labor law compliances required of Indian companies, organizations can spend a significant amount of time ensuring that they are compliant with all these provisions, with no guarantee of full compliance.

Statutory means “of or related to statutes,” or what we normally call laws or regulations. Compliance just means to comply with or adhere to. So statutory compliance means you are following the laws on a given issue. The term is most often used with organizations, which must follow lots of regulations. When they forget or refuse to follow some of those regulations, they are out of statutory compliance. A company that follows all the rules is in statutory compliance.

Many companies are out of statutory compliance, in part because the cost of following the rule is too high, and/or the consequencesare insignificant to worry about.
