The Factories Act, 1948 is an extremely important legislation which was promulgated during the early years of Indian democracy to regulate the conditions of various factories in India and to ensure a better and more favourable working environment for the workmen. The importance of welfare legislations, especially in the field of labour laws cannot be over emphasized. This is proved by the high number of instances in which the Factories Act and other labour legislations are invoked and the number of cases delivered by the various courts in the country which are continuously interpreting the provisions of the Act in newer light and newer contexts.
It was due to this increase in the number of cases on the Factories Act as well as the various interpretations given by these cases that the publishers felt the need to revise and update this commentary on the Factories Act, 1948 with the latest case laws and amendments. This book contains cases reported till September, 2016 from the major labour law journals of the country and also contains the major allied legislations such as the Boilers Act, the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, etc.
This book should be extremely useful for Employers, Employees, Trade Unions, Lawyers, Industrial Tribunals, Labour Courts and all those dealing with Labour Laws.
