Justice V R Krishna Iyer is one of the most prominent judges in the Supreme Court of India and his contributions to labour jurisprudence are legendary. This book analyzes the most important judgements delivered by Justice Iyer from the perspective of social justice.

Arranging the judgements contextually and in accordance with the subject and within the framework of prevailing industrial laws, the authors examine key aspects of industrial relations in India and provide a clear understanding of the linkage between labour issues and the philosophy of the Constitution as perceived by Justice Iyer.
