Dear Paramjeet Singh Whatever the jobs restricted by the CLRA Act, in those jobs we cannot engage the Contract Labourers. Except those jobs we can engage the Contract workers on all types of jobs.

Dear Mr.Singh,
You can engage contract workmen for work activities that are non core and non key positions for your organization or in other words for non- perennial activities.
So far the number is concerned the CLRA do not puts any ceiling on the numbers that can be engaged.But make sure that the statutory points are properly complied to.
For further discussion you may reach me at the mentioned number.

you can engage contractor workers in non perennial activities, like gardening, loading unloading, material handling. however states regulate the same differently.
vis a vis number of employees to be engaged through contractor as such there is no ceiling but the courts have power to lift the veil and to see as to whether the the contract between the principal employer and contractor is a sham and thereafter can hold the employee as direct employee of principal employer.
