Hi members
As per ESI Act, the salary for exemption is above Rs.10,000/- per month which we all know. In case an specalised worker is engaged for daily wage and his daily wage is Rs.390/-, is he coverable under the act. The payment will be calculated on a monthly basis and paid only at the end of the month. Had the employee worked on all days (i.e) in a month 26 days his salary will be above the coverage limit. Is he coverable under the act? In case you find any rulings plz share.

he will come under the category of exempted employee.if someone getting 385 per day than only they will be covered under ESIC.if he works only for 10 days in a month and his earning will be 3900 in a month ,still he will not be covered under ESIC.

Dear Mr.Malik
Why I am so particular is that, an ESI inspector had advised that exemption of an employee under ESI Act cannot be considered for a daily wager.Also, when I browsed thro the act books & journals nowhere I found the daily wage amount.It speaks only about the monthly factor.Kindly help me sort out this issue.

dear yogesh
i think your query should be clear from this conversation.you have deduct ESI but not PF.
Anand as ESI inspector asked you ,he is totally worng .as you can refer payment of wages act,this monthly salary is for 26 days and you can takeout daily wages by dividing 26.he is worng by saying this that daily wager are not exempted from ESI.
