My exposure to such complecated matters only helped me to gain knowledge. I have always been very neutral between employer and employee on issues connected with HR. My past was with a manufacturing company in Kerala and as you know Kerala is very sensitive in Trade Union areas and as I found the workers down here are well aware of their rights. Therefore, before addressing them we should at least go through the Act and I use to trace the corners to find possibilities. That's all. You can also improve your legal knowledge. If you come accross a situation, study it well, refer books and take a note of it and then present it. You will never forget it. Now- a days we have plenty of sources like google, citehr.com, which are at your fingure only to collect any data to want. In my earlier days it was just printed bare Acts without any comments and interpretations but now the things have different shape. You have potentials to improve. Be with citehr and regualrly view the different forums, don't worry, you do not reply but collect materials. This will help you a lot.
All the best.
