We have many factories where we deployed watchmen, security, caretaker and q controller to control the vehicle movement. I want to know that the status of those employed in factory in mentioned categories are worker as per sec 2 (i) of Factories Act. Location Maharastra,
Thks / Rgds,

As per section 2(1) of the factories act all the above said persons are workermen. Even in Industrial Dispute Act these persons are also included as workmen.
Dear, No doubt every employee whether inside or outside are workmen irrespective of what work they do so long as they do the duty of the co./employer. kumar.s.
