Dear Bala Panmand,
The managerís complaint can also be entertained & heard by the Labour Department if he is covered under that particular Act for getting any relief. For example if is covered under the definition of employee under the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965, Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972, & Punjab Shops & commercial Establishment Act, 1958 etc. then he can file his complaint before the Appropriate Authority of the Labour Department.
Submitted as requested.

It is hereby submitted that the manager employee can lodge a complaint with the office of the labour commissioner & if you receive a notice from any of the officer then in that case you are to raise your objection at the time of hearing that he is not entitled to get any relief from you as the manager is not covered under such of the Acts. Your office do not have any jurisdiction to try & entertain his complaint on the ground that he is not covered under such & such Acts.

Dear All,
How can we describe a role of a Manager? Though he designated as Manager and performing duties involving directly (excluding supervisory responsibilities), can he not elegible to approach labour commissioner?
I feel, the manager who is performing only supervisory responsibilities is may not approach labour commissioner and the person may be designated as Manager but performing duties like other employees can be treated as a normal employee and elegible to take assistance from labour commissioner.
Please correct me if i am wrong.

Dear Tara Chand,
The office of the Deputy Labour Commissioner, Gurgaon ( Circle -1 & 2) is situated near PWD Rest House & opposite Commissioner's Office. According to me only one half yearly return (Form 20) is to be submitted by the contractor covered under the Contract Labour ( R&A) Act, 1970 & the Haryana Rules made thereunder as DLC is also working the capacity of Licensing Officer under this Act & thus we are not to file returns under various Acts with this office.
