Power Under Section 11-A of the Industrial Disputes Act
Section 11-A of the Industrial Disputes Act confers powers on the Labour Courts, Tribunals and National Tribunals to give proper relief in case of discharge or dismisal of workman and to decide the justification of the decision of the employers. When it is found that the departmental inquiry is not held properly, the Labour Court / Tribunal / National Tribunal would set aside the order of punishment by giving appropriate relief to the concerned workman. Appropriate relief to the concerned workman may include lesser punishment or even no punishment resulting in reinstatement of the concerned workman.
