Dear All,
I am working with a construction industry and we have Contract labour License & BOCW License.
We are maintaining all register under CLA (Central Rules) & BOCW Act. But Labour Enforcement officer want Registers under Minimum Wages Act 1950 and according to him no need to maintain all forms and registers under Both Act.
Kindly suggest me can we maintain the forms & register under minimum wages act as directed by LEO?

Dear Member,
Welcome to CiteHR.
First examine which the appropriate Govt. in your case & then go through the notification issued by the Govt. for workers employed in the schedule employment as mentioned by you. You can also approach your local labour office to have this information.

Dear Alok,

At times we face difficulty in deciding the fact that when two or more labour enactments are found applicable to maintain same register(s) & especially when none of the Act says that we are exempted from maintaining that register in other enactment (s). Now coming to your case as per your brief you are covered under MW Act, 1948, The CL (R&A) Act, 1970 and THE BOCW Act, 1996. After going through The Contract Labour (R&A) Central Rules, 1971 we found that Rue 78(d) says that if any of the establishment is covered under the Payment of Wages Act, 1936 & Minimum Wages Act, 1948 & Rules made there under then muster roll, register of wages, deductions, OT, Fines & advance and wages slip if maintained under those Acts then these register & records shall be deemed/considered to be maintained under this Act & rules. For more details you may also go through this central Rule 78(d) of central rules.
Opinion/ comments submitted as requested.
