Office of the Labour Commissioner

The office of the Labour Commissioner is situated in Kolkata with branches all across the state of West Bengal. The Assistant Labour Commissioners are appointed primarily to ‘conciliate’ any ‘industrial dispute’ before referring the matter to the appropriate forum. It is mandatory to approach the Labour Commissioner Under Section 2A(2) and/ or Section 10(1B)(d) of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 before raising the dispute in Labour Courts/ Industrial Tribunals. Hence, it is important to deal the alleged dispute efficiently at the initial stage before the Assistant Labour Commissioner.
