Labour Law is the “Body of Laws, Administrative Rulings, & Precedents” which address the Relationship between & among “Employers, Employees & Labour Organisations”, often dealing with issues of Public Law.
Indian labour law makes a distinction between people who work in “organised” sectors and people who work in “unorganised sectors. The unorganised sector can be defined as that part of the work force that have not been able to organise itself in pursuit of a common objective because of certain constraints such as casual nature of employment, ignorance or illiteracy, superior strength of the employer singly or in combination etc. viz. Construction workers, labour employed in cottage industry, handloom/power loom workers, sweepers and scavengers, beedi and cigar workers etc.

Why labour laws are needed?
This is so because the Acts as they exist today only apply to those workers who have a clear employer‐employee relationship. 50% of India’s workers are self employed like small and marginal farmers, artisans and street vendors, many workers work for contractors or have no fixed employer like agricultural labourers and home‐based workers and also, employers have been decentralising, hiring contract labour and divesting themselves of responsibility, as a result of which even the organised workers are becoming unorganised. Secondly, since workers are not organised, they have no bargaining power. Because of this, even when laws exist, workers are too weak and disorganised to demand them.
Labour legislation that is adapted to the economic and social challenges of the modern world of work fulfills three crucial roles.
- It establishes a legal system that facilitates productive individual and collective employment relationships, and therefore a productive economy
- It provides a framework within which employers, workers and their representatives can interact with regard to work related issues, it serves as an important vehicle for achieving harmonious industrial relations based on workplace democracy
- It provides a clear and constant reminder and guarantees fundamental principles and rights at work which have received broad social acceptance and establishes the processes through which these principles and rights can be implemented and enforced.
