Dear sir, I want know about the difference between shop establishment act and factories act.please help me
From India, Coimbatore
Both are Acts to regulate conditions of service of workers engaged. While the Factories Act is applicable to establishments wherein a manufacturing activity is carried out the Shops and Commercial Establishments Act is applicable to establishments which do not fall under the definition of factory, mine or plantations. The Factories Act is a central Act whereas the Shops and Commercial Establishments Act is a state Act and as such there will be separate Shops Act for separate state.

If an organisation is covered under Factories Act, does its back office still needed to be covered in shops & Establishments Act
From India, Gurgaon
If the admin/ back office is situated outside the factory premises then it will be covered by the provisions of the Shops and Commercial Establishments Act. On the other hand, if it is within the factory boundaries only, then there will not be separate coverage but all employees will be covered under the Factories Act itself.
