About the Book:

The book has retained its three main constituents − Labour welfare, Trade Unionism and Industrial Relations; but in a revised and reorganized form. Keeping in view, the significant impact of the cataclysmic changes taking place in the country under economic reforms commonly known as LPG model, i.e., Liberalisation, Privatisation and Globalisation, the book presents the current scene in this field in a new and updated perspective.

Besides this, the book contains a new part added − `other important topics` which has a focus on diverse aspects like:

  • Issues of segments of Labour like − child labour, women workers.
  • Human Resource Management: HRM − as a present approach to handling of labour relations.
  • Labour Market: Problems pertaining to employment, i.e., displacement and utilization of labour.
  • 2nd National Commission on Labour and a gist of its recommendations.
