Employment Law

Employment and labour laws are regulatory forces that protect the rights and livelihoods of both employees/workers and employers. Labour laws in India exist to prevent employers—who are typically the ones operating from a position of power—from exploiting their workforce with unreasonable work hours, poor working conditions, or inadequate pay. Labour laws also must account for formation of trade unions, which are typically formed to give workers more bargaining power when safeguarding their rights.
