Dear Friends,

I would like to know the legality behind the employee shown as a consultant by one of the retailer company in india.

I work with a Retail firm as an retail Sales Executive where I am employed as a consultant. I get a debit note while getting my Monthly Salary along with Cheque on which its written Consultant. All the employees working in various branches of the company are in same condition. Here employee’s works like tea vendor, there are no statutory employment benefits like CL, PL, EPF, Sick Leave, and minimum working hours etc, even the remunerations are not as per the minimum wages act. (In the case of lower level) . Company operates the business under shop & establishment act, as per the shop & establishment rules employee have right to get all employment benefits as stated above. How the all full time workers are shown as “Consultant “this seems a injustice & ill-treatment towards the employees.

I request you to kindly clear my doubts so that some initiatives can be taken for the betterment of the victim employees.

firstly write a mail to your hr regarding this... and ask them to clarify their policy on this, then we'll be able to help you,, you are designated as consultant it doesn't mean you cant get benefits.. there are job profile within orgz ending in consultant title.. like career consultant.. so issue is not of desig it shud be of unfair treatment

Dear Seniors,
I would appreciate your guidance & Suggestion the above subjected matter.
We are full time employees but on company's peppers we are consultants (Providing consultancy according peppers, we are not the employees as per company records), they deduct the TDS against our salary & gives us yearly TDS certificates. (Pays salary as consultancy free for the month of .................)
I just wanted to know accordingly to which law company does his type of employment.
They just pay monthly wages/salary no other befits are given to employees.
Company HR or management never gives clarity over this matter. (They treats like if you want to work pls work else leave policy they adopt)
Kindly advice on same.......
