CONFLICT BETWEEN STANDING ORDERS & APPOINTMENT LETTER - FORMER WOULD PREVAIL - The Industrial Employment (standing Orders) Act, 1946
The standing orders, when certified under the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, have the binding force and its provisions cannot be circumvented or enlarged by any contract of service including appointment letter. This view has been taken by the Supreme Court and the High Courts and a reference is made to one case wherein it has been held that in the event of conflict between the provisions of Standing Orders and Factories Act, the latter will prevail.
