Respected Sir,
I have been working in a pvt. company in Guwahati, Assam as personnel officer for the last 2 years . Recently our company started a project for which we recruited some candidates on contractual basis and a few on casual basis. Now my question is whether they will be eligible for PF,bonus and ESIC and what the laws actuall says? moreover what is the difference between them because both are treated here more or less the same.

The main difference in both types of employment is the number of hours that has been put in by the employee. If the employee works on a hourly basis, then it is termed as casual employment and if the employment works for not less than 38 hours a week, then it is known as contractual employment. If the employee is on casual employment basis, then he/she cannot avail of paid sick leaves, public holidays and he/she may not be informed on the roster changes in the firm. While employees on a contractual basis are employed for a longer duration, employees on casual employment are employed for shorter durations, like for five or ten days.
