I am working as an contract labour in an government organisation.
I am working here for two years without breakup and doing the same job regularly from two years in same office.
So if the contract closes can i claim for permanency?
Is there any scope for this.
If so please tell me what are the rules for making my job permanent in nature
and what are the steps which i should take for making this job permanent.
If no, then please tell me what can i do for claiming this job.

Dear Akki,

here is no specific provisons made for contract labour for permanency on job. The Contrat labour itself is regualte or abolish as per job required in establishment. But contractor need to provide welfare amenities to his labour as facilitated to permanent workmen like leave, canteen, rest rooms, latrines, drinking water etc. Pl. refer Contract Labour Act. if Contractor is unable to provide necessary amenities, then it is liability of Principal Employer to provide the same.

About 180 days working in one establishment. The Principal Employer urge Contractor to rotate his labours. If the groups of labour engaged for job for whole year in one establishment, there are chances of permanency claim in establishment from labour. I have came accross several permanency claim in my career. The Employer must be careful.

The Employer should not directly pass instructions to labour. The Contractor or his Supervisor should be mediator. The labour should not feel that they are part & parcel of Principal Employer.
