Dear Friends

The theoretical and legal points on deployment of contract labor is very well discussed and elaborated above. In real business, (1)companies do deploy contract labors in perennial type of job and (2) in certain cases contract labor is deployed in positions where permanent employees are also engaged in same/similar jobs, which may attract litigation under article 14 of the Indian constitution.Such deployment increases the possibility of future IR disturbances and legal complication.

One of the most important reason to take such apparent risk is probably low cost labor, availability of such labor in the market, poor control in the government machinery and reluctance of unionized labour to deliver proper work to employer.

In business risk and return are positively correlated. Contract labor will continue to be deployed, despite industry/factory specific IR and legal setbacks, as it happened in Air India, SAIL, many other companies and recently in the Mehasana Factory of Maruti. I seek contribution and comments of experts in this field from different parts of India on the following points.

1. What happens if we deploy contract labor in perennial type of job: Legally contract labors can not raise dispute against the principal employer and seek permanency, even if they are deployed in perennial type of job, unless the company/industry has been prohibited by the labor department to deploy contract labor in such category of job. As such, there will be no cognizance of such dispute.

2. In the land mark award in case of SAIL, I find that,even if a dispute is settled through adjudication/court in favor of contract labor, the judiciary, at the most, may prohibit deployment of contract labor in such cases but can not impose/ pass award on the principal employer to regularize such contract labor.

3. I saw criticism on the recent Maruty case (where one of our colleague, who also happens to be one of my my classmate in XISS, died out of labor outrage) that HR Department was responsible for such outrage. I wish HR community could give a befitting reply to such criticism.
