Filing of long pending labour case in high court for relief

Posted by Shashank Pandey

Dear Experts,
I had filed a case for illegal termination to the labor department and a conciliation meeting was also held in mid-2018, the labor department had reported that the termination is indeed illegal in violation of I.D. Act, 1947 however, the meeting failed due to lack of knowledge of employer and poor conciliation. The labor department issued letter that seek relief from the labor court. Subsequently, I filed case in the labor court but the case is pending till date because presiding officer is not appointed after the retirement of previous officer since 2017. After waiting for so long, the case is still pending and there is no information about when a judge will be appointed. I want to know that whether I can file writ petition in high court directly under article 226 for relief and getting justice?
