Tremendous changes in global and national economic environments have led to transformations in employment and human resource systems in India. As an emerging economy, studying the employment systems in India assumes unprecedented importance for governments and corporations alike. This book examines the changes in employment relations in India in the post-reform period. Combining field practices in actual workplaces with frontline theoretical arguments in human resource management and industrial relations, the book examines the validity of the "converging divergences" thesis in employment relations for India. Through this study, it identifies the sources of variations in employment relation practices. It also studies important developments such as increased use of contract labor over regular workers, business management methods of MNCs and how their employment relations practices differ from those of Indian firms.
