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.

In continuation to the inputs given by Shri Madhu, I wish to add the following:
We can take the model standing orders given in the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act as a guidelines while preparing our own Standing Orders and it need not be the replica of it. For example, if you take the classification of misconducts, we can add any number to it suiting to our requirements. If we have women employees on roll, we can also incorporate the Sexual Harrassment Policy in the Standing Orders. After preparing the draft standing orders, 5 copies have to be submitted to the Appropriate Authority (Normally the Regional Joint commissioner of Labour will be the authority) for certification.
The Appropriate Authority will call both employer representative and employee representatives/unions and he will give a chance to the employee representatives to file their written counter statement. After hearing both the parties the authority will certify the Standing Orders after effecting the required changes, which will become the certified Standing Orders of the company.
In case of any grievance over the Standing Orders, the Act contemplates even a single employee can challenge any of the provisions and request for an amendment.
It is always better to have our own Standing Orders suiting our requirements.
Thanks & Regards
