The Minimum Wages Act, 1948 is amongst a gamut of labour law legislations in India which were enacted to give employees various benefits and guarantee minimum rates of the wages paid by employers. In a country like India the importance of a guaranteed minimum rate of wages cannot be over emphasized. This is proved by the high number of instances in which the Minimum Wages Act is 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 context.
It was due to this increase in the number of cases on the Minimum Wages Act and the various interpretations given by these cases as well as amendments in light of India’s recent push towards a more liberalized economy, that the authors felt the need to revise and update this book Law and Practice on Minimum Wages Act, 1948 with the latest case laws and amendments.
This book contains cases till June, 2018 from the major labour law journals of the country and also contains the amendments made through the Ease of Compliance to Maintain Registers under Various Labour Laws Rules, 2017; important State Amendments, etc.
This book will be extremely useful for Employers, Employees, Trade Union, Lawyers, Industrial Tribunals, Labour Courts and all those dealing with concerned with Labour Laws and will serve its patrons well. Any suggestions for the improvement of this book would be greatly welcome.
