The Indian industry covers a wide diaspora of man-force intensive industries and In a country driven by disparity, number of unskilled labour exceeds the skilled manpower; our governments are concerns are tilted towards the lower segments of employees. The Indian Parliament alongwith the legislatures of the states within the Indian Union have developed a detailed body of statutory enactments, rules, regulations and notifications relating to the discipline and management of the labour force and their conditions of work. Nevertheless, it shall be wrong to assume that employees not falling within the definition of "Labour" or the employers need no protection for their rights.

We at Advani & Co. endeavor to strike a harmonious balance between the employer and the employee’s rights and responsibilities by establishing a mutually beneficial legal relationship between them. For more information please read our practice area brochure.
