Contract labours are expected to maintain the set out discipline of the organisation. If they do not follow it, bring it to the notice of contractor who has engaged them and warn him that payment as per his monthly bill will be withheld if the employees do not maintain the decorum. Make the issue a matter of the contractor rather than owning the responsibility as it is. Regards, Madhu.T.K
Typically, contractors are not authorized to commit anything on behalf of the company to the company's customers. Most companies have pretty tight policies to this affect. The only two exceptions are 1. If the contractor is filling in for a senior leader of the company and has been explicitly authorized by the company's senior leadership 2. The commitment is about the work directly done by the contractor (or severely impacts contractor’s work) There are a few things you could do from an HR/Legal/corporate perspective to ensure you (read your company) would not be in such a situation. 1. If your company does not already have such aforesaid policies in place, contact your legal department put such procedures in place. 2. Have the contractors (and the companies they represent) sign agreements specific to the contractor's authority 3. Define a role-based authorization matrix and clearly establish with your clients as to who is authorized to make commitments on company’s behalf While the above could take some time, to do some immediate damage control, send out a general memo to your clients that states something like "Please note that starting <date>, any and all commitments on behalf of <company name> must be authorized by a full time employee of <company name> at the <position name> level or above. We regret to inform you that we are not in a position to honor any commitments made by anyone other than the authorized personnel of <company name>, including contractors hired by <company name>". I would request the corporate legal affairs department to vet the memo before sending it to the clients as well (just be on the safe side). Thanks, --Som G
Dont take any risk action, just select a person to intract with them and he should talk about how to earn money, like that many thing to intract. one more idea is introduce some entertainment thing which shuold change there mind toward to work properly. this is easy way and profitable too.
Dear Friends, In this regard, what Mr. Madhu has said is correct. The Contract Workers being engaged by the Contractor and the Contractor has to follow the rules and regulations of the Organisation. If his workers are not follow the discipline, Management has to think for alternative by the terminating the Contract and once the Contractor terminated, his workers shall go with him. The Organisation has nothing to do with the Contract Worekrs, except Payments, If Contractor fails to make payment, then the Principle Employer become liable. This is my opinion. AVGN vara Prasad
