The Labour Department refers the genuine disputes of industrial workers to Labour Courts-cum-Industrial Tribunals for adjudication which remain unresolved inspite of the efforts of the conciliation machinery of the State. For the expeditious disposal of such cases, seven Industrial Tribunal-cum Labour Courts have been set up by the State Government. All these Industrial Tribunal-cum-Labour Courts cover the disputes as per Schedule-I and II of the Industrial Disputes Act and are functioning under the Presiding Officers at Faridabad (Three), Gurgaon (Two), Rohtak, Hisar, Panipat and Ambala. This measure aims at providing justice to the workes and managements thereby creating a sense of confidence and satisfaction amongst the workers.
