Recently i have participated in a bid for operational and maintenance of a state government organization in AP with valid labour registration certificate of this year as per their requirement.
My application has been rejected stating the rule that we are not having labour licence for the last year, even after informing them about the rules that it is required for 20 members, they are stating that if we cross 5 members i need to have labour license, as per Govt rule of AP.
Let me know what labour rules states in India and for AP?
1. Is labour rule for entire India is same or for Andhra Pradesh is different?
2. I am already supplying 3 members of contract labour for another Pvt. company for the past 2yrs, wherein they have not asked us by knowing these rules.
Let me know are labour rules are different for different states.
If so what should my course of action.
I have not gone in detail about the AP Contract Labour RULES but would like to state that employers may reject application of those contractors who do not have labour licence. It may be a fact that a contract is supposed to take the licence only when he engages 20 or more employees in a particular establishment but if a licenced contractor is available, why should an employer take the risk of engaging a contractor who does not possess a valid licence?
Though there are rulings that employees engaged through a contractor who does not possess valid licence or whose licence has been cancelled will not get absorbed in to permanent rolls of the Principal employer, why should an employer take risk when contractors with proper licences are available?
