Manoj Kumar Sadual, Girish Ranjan Sahoo
In a developing state like Odisha tribal labour migration to urban sectors takes place due to several factors like unemployment, lack of skill, ignorance about state’s developmental initiatives and lack financial support from nationalized financial Institutions. Statistics reveal that most of the migrant tribal labours are engaged in unorganized sectors. The new work environment, urban cultural setup, terms of employment and unsafe working conditions often leads them in to legal disputes and exploitations. The primary objectives of the present research are to empirically analyze the legal problems of the migrant tribal labours engaged in urban sectors. The projected hypothesis aims analyze above issues in comparative mode with Non-Tribal labours and across gender through both Quantitative and Qualitative research approach. The sample structure includes Tribal labour of Odisha: n =250, Non-Tribal labours of Odisha: n =250 and total Sample= n 500. The data will be collected through a structured questionnaire and will be processed and analyzed for appropriate legal interpretations through judicial rulings and instruments of law. The research inferences and implications are expected to outline the legal remedies for the resolutions of the issues.
