A complete, practical and thorough work that gives full guidance to the employer as well as the employee in various kinds of disciplinary action cases.
In very practical terms it explains the rights and obligations of the employer and imparts an understanding of the areas in which an employer may still dispense with the services of an employee, without inviting the legal or judicial odium. Where does one draw the line between permissible 'termination simpliciter ' and an action which is stigmatic or punitive? This book also explains clearly the procedure and do's and don'ts for such action.
The circumstances under which a disciplinary action taken by an employer can be challenged are also explained clearly. The remedies that are available to the employee against any illegal or motivated disciplinary action are explained in detail, and the rights and responsibilities of the employees under various laws are explained and discussed at length.
Important case-law has been incorporated and legislative changes affecting the rights and obligations of the employers and employees in this field have been taken note of. The book is of immense utility to the employers, the judiciary, the labour law enforcement agencies and industrial houses.
