INTRODUCTION
Employment relations have become multifaceted and subtle in todays era where everything has
become automated and technology plays a vital role in every organization. On one hand where
technology makes the processes easy it makes other components in organizations complex which need
due attention. With the changing times the structures of the organizations have also changed from
being hierarchical to flat organizations. The stereotype organizations where the superior-subordinate
relationships existed have been replaced by more of an informal structure.
Employment relations has been replaced by the word industrial relations. Employment relations is a
contemporary word and encompasses various aspects of Human resource management.
Earlier the employer-employee relationships were completely formal and hierarchical in nature but with
liberalization the economy has opened up to new policies, technology and the change in the socioeconomic setup of the country has also affected the expectations of both the employer-employer
behaviour which has led to more demands on part of employee as well as employer.
