I have one query; kindly advise that - Is Civil procedure codes provisions are applicable on Labour laws
If not then the decisions of labour authorities under labour law are appealable and what is procedure. Your prompt advise is highly appreciable.

From India ,

This is a well established law that a Labour Tribunal/Court is not a civil court as such the provisions of CPC or Limitation Act are not applicable.

Similarly the Authority appointed under the various labour enactments is not the civil court. As such they will be governed by the specific Act as the case may be.

You may have a look of the leading judgments pronounced by the apex court in the matter of Grindlays Bank- AIR 1981 SC 606 and Ajaib Singh case reported in (1999) 6 SCC 82.

So far as the Award of a Labour Court/Tribunal there is no provision of appeal. However, any Award passed by a Tribunal or Court is subject to judicial review under Article 226 of the Constitution and a Writ Petition can be filed before High Court.

Similarly in some Labour Acts the provision of appeal has been provided in the Act itself like Payment of Gratuity Act, Payment of Wages Act… etc. Where there is no provision of appeal a writ can to filed in the concerning High Court.
