There has been a rapid development of “Industrial Law” & “Labour Legislation” in our country in recent years. The number of establishments has swelled enormously and the disputes and frictions between employer and employees have naturally become the order of the day. The Supreme Court has delivered numerous judgments, covering thousands of pages, dealing with almost all important aspects of labour-management relations and the various provisions of Labour Laws.
The Judicial pronouncements by the Supreme Court are reported in numerous official and non-official journals and Gazettes with the result that their quick reference is a difficult and tedious affair. To facilitate this, authors have brought forth this publication “Supreme Court Labour Judgments (2014-2018)” in continuation of earlier Supreme Court Labour Judgments (1950-2013) in 29 Vols. The compilation is exhaustive and has been edited with care.
The chief object of this book is to place before the employers, employees, trade unions and others concerned with labour and industrial disputes, an analytical study of latest cases on different topics under various industrial enactments like the Industrial Disputes Act, Factories Act, Minimum Wages Act, Workmen’s Compensation Act, etc. decided by Hon’ble Supreme Court in the years 2014 to 2018. An exhaustive list of contents of the subject is given at the beginning of the book, and parallel references to different law journals and reports have also been given. A consolidated table of all the cases decided by Hon’ble Supreme Court in the years 2014 to 2018 is also given.a
