The book has been written primarily to cater to the needs of M.B.A., M.Com., M.S.W., MHRM, Diploma Courses in Industrial Relations and Labour Laws and competitive examinations. It would also be useful to the practitioners in HRM and Labour Laws. This book would be an outcome of my experience in teaching the subject for many years and my interaction with the students and their feedback. Good industrial relationship is the adequate device for having the sustainable growth of the company in the economy. Good environment and successful interpersonal relation would lend its hands in strengthening employer-employee relationship. The happiness in the job enables the employees to be successful in the job as well as in their personal life. For the people to be happy in the work three things are required:

• Physical and mental health,
• Conducive working conditions, and
• Respect towards their job and organisation

This book furnishes concepts of industrial relations and labour laws, in view point of the students appearing for the course papers. The book would give a friendly approach to the students in guiding them to get knowledge about the industrial relationship and labour laws.
