In my case act is applying or not.
IInd question is what is section 1(4) b under contract labour (regulation and abolition) Act 1970
Kindly guide me
Thanks & Regards
Employer engages less than 20 contract employees and contractor has less than 20 employees does not require registration under the Act.
Employer engages more than 20 contract employees needs registration. Contractor can be unlicensed.
Contractor has more than 20 employees needs licence and employer needs registration.
1. At any given point of time if the number of employee exceeds more than 20 in a year whether in direct or indirect employment, the Company is required to be registered under CLRA.
2. The contractor needs License only if the number of his employees exceeds more than 20.
Hope this is clear.
I think that in a factory where there is 10 or more workmen under contract then the firm should go under CLRA. Excepr the manufacturing concern the limit has been extended to 20 workmen.
I would request other members to correct me if i am wrong but recently I had a talk with the Labour Inspector and he stated as such.
When we are discussing abour CLRA Act, we should not use the word employee, we should use the " workmen". as "workmen" has been defined by CLRA Act of 1970. Now for your question, it is mandatory for an establishment employing 20 or more workmen to go for registration, if employs contract labour. and its also mandatory for a contractor to get licence , if employs contract labour. Less that 20 for either of the cases is not mandatory. But if appropriate govt. wants this act will be applicable if the number is less than 20.
