  Profile - Mr Leo P.E. Ramchand

Mr Leo P.E. Ramchand served as a judge of the Industrial Court from 1975 to 1989 before assuming the presidency. Before that he served as Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Labour (1969-1975), Commissioner of Labour (1963 to 1968), Deputy Commissioner of Labour (1962-1963), Labour Officer (1958 to 1960), and Labour Inspector (1956 to 1958). 

He graduated from Grays Inn in 1974 and was a member of the International Industrial Relations Association and the Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution. Upon his death in 1999, his brother, Professor Ken Ramchand remembered him thus: “My brother was an exemplary civil servant and a humane and tolerant man who grew more and more accepting of other people’s failings, their malice and folly, with each passing day…The source of his benign attitude was a philosophy that runs deep in the great comic poets and calypsonians from Chaucer to the Mighty Spoiler: the world is what it is, people are what they are, and there is enough there already to love and enjoy.”
