India is a developing country where labour is in abundance but most of the workers are working in the unorganised sectors. In the Indian context, social security is a comprehensive approach designed to prevent deprivation, assure the individual of a basic minimum income and to protect the individual from any uncertainties. Therefore, with a view to providing social security to unorganized workers, the Government of India enacted the “Unorganized Workers Social Security Act, 2008”. The study was focused on the attitude of unorganised sector employees towards unorganised Sector Social Security Act, 2008. Out of eight taluks in selected Nagapattinam District, two taluks i.e. Nagapattinam and Mayiladuthurai were selected purposively. To know the employees attitudes towards the provisions of the social security Act, the survey method was used.
