The author has made additional efforts in this edition to provide analysis of each section along with ratio of judicial decisions and explanatory notes so that the reader is in a position to grasp the ingredient and intention of enactment of each provision of the Act and the Rules thereto. The book, as revised, is written for keeping in view the requirements and needs of managements, employees, practising lawyers and judicial officers.
It will also help labour department officials, who have statutory responsibility under the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946, to implement the provisions of this Act. This book may serve as a reference material for the students of law, management and industries. Unlike other books, brevity is the essence of this book. Of course, there are other books available in the market on this subject. What makes it distinct from others, is precision. While in many other books, lengthy judgments have been reproduced to make them more bulky, extra care has been taken to keep this book trim, handy, purposive and useful.
The author having decades of experience in legal field and being the editor of popular journal, Labour Law Reporter, has taken all care and caution to sift the grain from chaff. The ratio decidendi of every relevant case finds place albeit in few words in this book. Hopefully, the book will be useful for lawyers, executives, managers, employers and employees.
