Welcome to Labour Law Reporter

A monthly journal, Labour Law Reporter, now popularly known and authoritatively referred as LLR, is designed to be useful to the Human Resources People/Personnel Managers, law practitioners as well as those implementing, administering and adjudicating Labour Laws and Industrial Relations. LLR publishes articles, notes and comments, and detailed commentaries on recent cases and legislation in the field of labour laws, besides publishing solutions to the problems on employee-employer relations, ESI, PF, Bonus, Gratuity & all other employment related Acts, applicable especially in the Indian context.  

LLR has always kept pace with the changing times. That, not so recent transformation of “Personnel Management” into “Human Resources Management” has been very well spotted by LLR and a segment on Human Resources Management was added, which is now “an inseparable part of the journal”, as remarked by one of the readers of LLR. For over four decades now, LLR is an inseparable stationery on the desk of an HR Professional and a Labour Law Practitioners.

Labour Law Reporter is a must-have journal for all those who wish to find a source of quality reading material relating to Employee-Employer Relations, Labour Laws in India and important judgments of Indian Courts in that connection, more particularly with authoritative head-notes and the ratio at a glance.

You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” Read more...
