Description
It is my pleasure to present to you the textbook on Introduction to Labour and Industrial Laws in its new version. The textbook had continued in a single volume till the fourth edition in 2017. Now it has been divided into two parts. Industrial disputes, factories, trade unions, employee compensation, employment standing orders, child and contract labour, apprentices and fatal accidents are covered in Part I in 10 chapters. Part II consists of labour laws relating to wages, gratuity, provident fund, maternity relief and other social security laws. The new version is also coinciding with the labor reforms in the form of introduction of four labour codes namely: The Code on Wages, 2019, Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code, 2020, Code on Social Security, 2020 and The Industrial Relations Code, 2020. The codes have been notified but were not enforced when I completed editing this part. Therefore, an Introduction to two codes relevant for this part has been added in order to provide a window for students to understand new provisions and make comparisons wherever required. Pandemic in last two years has brought many issues relating to labour on the forefront after the businesses, production and manufacturing stopped due to lockdown. Migration of labour from one state to another and reduced labour payments are two of such major issues. The Supreme Court dealt with the question whether the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown imposed by the Central Government to contain the spread have created a public emergency as per explanation to section 5 of the Factories Act. The section gives the power to a State during public emergency to exempt any factory or class or description of factories from all or any of the provisions of the Act except section 67 subject to required conditions and for required period. The Court held that under section 5, existence of a public emergency must be demonstrated as an objective fact. The co-relationship between the cause and effect must exist. The validity of the State action impinging upon fundamental rights envisages the analysis - whether the law has been made in pursuance of legitimate State aim, whether there is a rational connection between the imposed infringing measures, the situation and the object sought to be achieved, whether measures are necessary to achieve the object and will not infringe rights to an extent greater than is necessary to fulfil the aim and whether sufficient safeguards against the abuse of such interference will be provided by the State.' It was reiterated in a case that the awards of labour courts and tribunals must be passed in compliance with the principles of natural justice. An award does not become binding merely because it has become enforceable.2 Any unilateral withdrawal of any privilege amounts to contravention of section 9-A and is unsustainable.
