Ans. An award including an arbitration award becomes enforceable on expiry of 30 days from the date of its publication under Sec. 17 of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947. If the employer does not implement an award after it has become enforceable, the workman concerned may approach the Labour Department of the appropriate Govt. for necessary action for implementation of the award. Where any money is due to a workman from an employer under the award, the workman may also apply to the appropriate Govt. { Regional Labour Commissioner (Central) in case of the Central Govt.} under Sec. 33C(1) for recovery of the money so due to him.
