Enforcement

Enforcement of the various labour legislations is mainly carried out through the 52 Labour Offices and 11 Industrial Health & Safety Offices. For effective functioning of the enforcement wing, the inspections in establishments are streamlined in such a way that there should not be any hindrance on the industrial production or commercial activity of the establishment. No unnecessary inspections are carried out in the State without a valid reason. Inspections are ordinarily made only on the basis of complaints from the trade unions, workers, public or the media, that too in a systematic and controlled manner.
