With time and after several International agreements and treaties, in india also the situation has come where the mantra is “ one who puts in the money is no more a Master” and one who puts in the labour is no more a servant. The right balance between the Promoters and the work force is sought to be achieved by way of several legislations which are constantly dynamic in nature. When the balance between the two is disturbed, most often unintentionally, it needs to be responded and checked immediately. Situations involving lay offs, retrenchment, closure etc are sensitive issues and need proper handling.
