The Payment of Wages Act, 1936 is one amongst a gamut of labour law legislations in India which were enacted to give employees various benefits and regulate the payment of salaries by the employers. In a country like India the importance of welfare legislation, especially in the field of labour laws cannot be over emphasized. This is proved by the high number of instances in which the Payment 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 contexts.

It was due to this increase in the number of cases on the Payment of Wags Act and the various interpretations given by these cases as well as amendments in light of India’s recent push towards a more digital economy, that the publishers felt the need to revise and update this book Commentaries on Payment of Wages Act, 1936 with the latest case laws and amendments. This book contains cases up to March, 2017 from the major labour law journals of the country and also contains the major rules and regulations such as the Payment of Wages (Procedure) Rules, 1937, the Payment of Wages (Railways) Rules, 1938, etc.

This book should be extremely useful for Employers, Employees, Trade Unions, Lawyers, Industrial Tribunals, Labour Courts and all those dealing with Labour Laws.
