Meny of the star hotels in kerala is following the system of FTC employment, like one year contract. and the contract will come to an automatic end on the expiry of the contract. Then the said employee would be continued on job on a daily basis for one month and again their cotract will be restarted after one month for next one year. Likewise there are employees working for 3 to 8 years continuely. is there any possibility to claim permenency for them?. Most of them are getting EPF, ESI fesilities but no gratuity.

If FTC is offerred to people against positions which are permanent in nature, then it will not be a fair practice.

For FTC employees Gratuity cannot be denied.Unfortunately if they claim they will be saved .Therefore it is a hobson"s choice between continuity of employment and losing the job.Though it may be legal it may not be practical unless the issue is taken up by some Union or Association.

At the same time, being permanent in job has a different interpretation in labour law. That is, an employee who is engaged in a job of permanent nature or which is not temporary in nature is said to be a permanent employee. Therefore, a fitter or welder in an automobile unit is doing some permanent job. Similarly, a Chef or Steward in a Hotel is also engaged in a permanent job, whereas, a worker who does painting the walls of a factory or hotel or one who attends some maintenance work which the maintenance mechanic of the company can not do due to the nature of work involved is not doing a work of permanent nature. The latter is a temporary employee. When a worker engaged in a permanent job satisfies the basic requirements of 240 days or such other parameters fixed by the management and as provided in the Standing Orders of the company, he will become a confirmed employee.
