The Labour Department is responsible for the enforcement of various labour laws in which the appropriate government is the state government. These laws provide for basic working conditions, statutory terms of employment including welfare and also for maintenance of industrial relations. This involves other stakeholders’ i.e. the employers and the employees. It is incumbent upon the labour department to not only ensure the implementation of labour laws in letter and spirit but also to maintain a balance in the industrial relation so as to ensure productivity and economic growth.
