About the Book

In the recent years there have been significant developments in labour laws and industrial relations. Both in the legislative sphere and in the courts there has been a marked shift in the approach to industrial relations—whereas earlier the interests of the workmen were focused on, the current emphasis is on ensuring fast industrial growth in the country required in view of global competition.

This edition has not only been revised and updated in line with The Changes in the law; it also gives a new dimension to the subject. The significant feature of the fifth edition is the inclusion of major amendments to the Trade Unions Act, 1926, and in the Central Rules framed under the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946. Recent trend in approaches of the Supreme Court and the High Courts has also been analyzed and critically evaluated. The Book comprises five parts:
Part I: Provides the contextual and constitutional framework of industrial Relations law
Part II: Explains the Law relating to trade unions, collective bargaining and unfair labour practices
Part III: Examines The Law relating to regulation of industrial disputes
Part IV: Deals with relating to standing orders and grievance procedure
Part V : Is on workers´ participation in management

This book will serve as textbook for students of LLB, LLM, MBA, MSW, CS, and masters and diploma programmes in personnel Management and industrial relations. It is indispensable for personnel managers, law officers, lawyers, trade unions, officials of labour departments and members of the labour judiciary.
