Dear All
I want to know if there is any procedure for selection of members of Grievance redressal committee as per ID Act. In Act, i could not find how to form the committee. Is selection of members simply by nomination by HODs and by unions or is there any specific procedure?

From India
The Committee is expected to have a maximum of six members of which at least three should be from the workers. Again if you have women employees, and if the total number of members in the committee is two, at least one member should be a woman employee. The number of women members should be proportionately increased to the total number members in the committee. That means, if we have a four member committee, at least 2 should be women and if we have six members in the committee, the number of women members should be three. Of these members, one person shall be selected as Chairperson and he/ she will continue as chairperson for one year. If we have the first Chairperson from among the management representative, the next chairperson should be from among the workers' members.
In addition to the above, there is no hard rule with regard to forming of Grievance Redressal Committee.

Dear Colleagues,

Please refer provisions inserted under ID Act related to Grievance redressal as below:

On the enforcement of section 7 of Act 46 of 1982, a new chapter IIB shall stand inserted as directed in section 7 of that Act. For the Text of section 7 of that Act, see Appendix.

“Chapter II-B


9-C. Setting up of Grievance Redressal Machinery.

(1) Every industrial establishment employing twenty or more workmen shall have one or more Grievance Redressal Committee for the resolution of disputes arising out of individual grievances.

(2) The Grievance Redressal Committee shall consist of equal number of members from the employer and the workmen.

(3) The Chairperson of the Grievance Redressal Committee shall be selected from the employer and from among the workmen alternatively on rotation basis every year.

(4) The total number of members of the Grievance Redressal Committee shall not exceed more than six:

Provided that there shall be, as far as practicable, one woman member if the Grievance Redressal Committee has two members and in case the number of members are more than two, the number of women members may be increased proportionately.

(5) Notwithstanding anything contained in this section, the setting up of Grievance Redressal Committee shall not affect the right of the workman to raise industrial dispute on the same matter under the provisions of this Act.

(6) The Grievance Redressal Committee may complete its proceedings within thirty days on receipt of a written application by or on behalf of the aggrieved party.

(7) The workman who is aggrieved of the decision of the Grievance Redressal Committee may prefer an appeal to the employer against the decision of Grievance Redressal Committee and the employer shall, within one month from the date of receipt of such appeal, dispose of the same and send a copy of his decision to the workman concerned.

(8) Nothing contained in this section shall apply to the workmen for whom there is an established Grievance Redressal Mechanism in the establishment concerned.”

I hope, its not clear.

What to do if there is no recognition of grievance comittee in any company. Company is very old and repute. Where and how to complain.
