Labour Law and Governance Reforms in India: Some Critical Perspectives

K.R. Shyam Sundar (Author)

Labour regulation in India has engaged the attention of not only policy makers but also social actors, researchers and practioners. Policy measures have started rolling out from the state governments ever since Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government assumed power in May 2014. These have brought on its heels definitive policy and labour law changes in several states. The trade unions are resisting and protesting, seemingly in vain. There is tension in the industrial relations system.

The articles in this book seek to critically analyze the underlying assumptions and propositions of the labour regulation debate in India and where necessary provide perspectives for assessing the policies and laws (e.g. ILO perspective) and offer counter-evidence. The book will be useful to a host of stakeholders and practioners in the world of work such as students and academics specializing in industrial relations and labour economics and related subjects, workers and trade union leaders, management representatives and those involved in policy making.
