Employers’ compliance means adhering to a set of standards and laws framed to protect the hired employees while ensuring that the business works properly. Every employer who hires workers must be strictly inspected to know whether he is complying with his role and responsibly as an employer. In case he is non-compliant, the following provisions must be afflicted on him:
– Penalizing with a monetary obligation
