This article provides an overview of the consequences of technology change on employment relationship in India. New technologies opened up employment opportunities in new and emerging sectors. Skills needed have undergone a change from that of manual dexterity and physical strength to those of trouble shooting and process handling. Group based incentivization and company specific bargaining are becoming more common. Unions no longer resist technology change but are concerned with the implications on the number of jobs, their content and earnings. It’s also argued that subjective norms need to be considered as a variable influencing the behavioural intentions of workers with respect to acceptance of technology change. Implications for practice and future research directions are also discussed.

Keywords : Employment oppurtunities, technology change
