A labour license, also known as a Labour Identification Number (LIN) or Labour License Certificate, is a mandatory registration required for certain establishments under the Shops and Establishments Act or Factories Act in India. It applies to businesses engaging a certain number of employees, typically in manufacturing, trade, or service sectors, and varies based on state-specific regulations.

A labour license is issued by the respective state's labour department and signifies compliance with labour laws and regulations concerning employment, working conditions, and welfare measures for employees. It involves the submission of necessary documents, such as proof of establishment, details of employees, workplace safety measures, and other statutory requirements, to obtain the license.

For employers, a labour license ensures legal compliance with labour laws, mitigating the risk of penalties, fines, or legal actions for non-compliance. It also promotes a safe and healthy work environment by enforcing standards for workplace safety, hygiene, and welfare measures. For employees, a licensed establishment provides assurance of fair employment practices, timely wages, and adherence to statutory benefits and rights.

Operating without a valid labour license can lead to severe repercussions, including legal consequences, fines, closure of the establishment, or even imprisonment for the employer. Non-compliance with labour laws undermines employee rights and welfare, risking their safety, health, and well-being in the workplace. Moreover, unlicensed establishments may face challenges in attracting and retaining skilled workers due to concerns about job security and legal compliance.
