The Journal

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.

Labour Laws and Human Resource management, without doubt are the two most important aspects of the relationship between an employer and the employee. Each one of us [either as an employer or as an employee] have at least once in our life time faced complex situations at our workplaces and have been left with no proper answers, like,

  • What exactly are my legal rights?
  • Besides paying or receiving salary, what are the additional duties I need to perform?
  • How should I manage my team for best results?
  • How and from where can I understand the various labour laws, their provisions, latest amendments, etc., properly?
  • Labour Law Reporter has the answer to all such questions and more.

With millions of readers across India and abroad, LLR enjoys a status of being an inseparable stationery on the desks of HR Professionals and Law Practitioners. It is matter of pride of everyone associated with LLR that it is frequently and authoritatively quoted by the Supreme Court, High Courts, Tribunals and Labour Courts of India.

HOW IT ALL HAPPENED!

Way back in 1969, the entry of LLR was at a particular point of time when there were other journals / reporters also with wide circulation. A young advocate specializing in labour laws, being ardent in reading the judgments, found that the journals claiming to be about labour laws were competing with each other not for quality reporting of judgments but swallowing the volume with judgments pertaining to government servants, Police and Defense Service personnel which were of least utility for those specializing in Labour Laws. The journals, as competing, were perhaps more concerned about number of pages and not the relevancy of judgments and in this race the subject ‘labour laws’ was getting neglected overlooking that there are over 178 Central and State Act.

It was that urge to do quality reporting of judgements pertaining to Labour Laws which motivated the young advocate, H L Kumar , to come out with a one-of-its-kind journal called ” Labour Law Reporter “.

LLR is one of the most popular and informative journals. It has educative articles, informative news, templates of letters and forms, court judgements, etc. presented in a simple yet enlightening manner. Readers find enriching experience reading this journal, not only when they are looking for answers to questions pertaining to employee-employer relations, but also when they want to learn the latest in the Indian Labour Law scenario.
