Description

In view of new work arrangements and global competition, labour laws are required to be amended and given a new shape. Since the first edition in 2002 some Acts have been amended and in some of them changes have been proposed but still they are far from what is required. It has been proposed to permit nightshifts for women workers under the Factories Act, 1948 but the Bill is still pending. Self-certification and Amnesty Schemes are proposed by the Employees State Insurance Corporation under the ESI Act. Amendments have been made in the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961, the Employees State Insurance Act, 1948 and the Workmen’s Compensation Act, 1923 which has been rechristened as Employees’ Compensation Act and to justify the changed name, the term ‘workman’ has been replace by the term ‘employee’. List of persons under Schedule II has also been expanded to include new categories of employees. A number of important Supreme Court decisions have appeared. All these things necessitated the new edition. In order to make the list of Labour Laws complete, more labour legislations were included in the second edition, namely. Fatal Accidents Act, 1855, the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946, the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961, the Apprentices Act, 1961, the Equal Remuneration Act, 1976, the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986, and the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970. A simplified version has been attempted for easy understanding. Commentaries on Acts which were already there in the previous edition have also been re-written. Important Supreme Court rulings up to 2013 have been incorporated in the current edition.
