How are employment-related complaints dealt with?
India

Answer ... Any employment-related complaint must be made in writing to the prescribed authority. Upon receipt of such complaint, the jurisdictional authority will summon the employer to appear and file such replies or documents as may be required. Both employer and the employee are given an opportunity to prove their case and to present relevant evidence on record. Based on the evidence available on record and the arguments of both parties, the authority will issue its final order.
