Please suggest on the following;
1.Our company has issued a Job Contract to a Contractor ( for a certain volume spreaded over a fixed period of say 1 year). Contractor has engaged labour at our premises for complition of the same.
2.Due to lack of order we (the Principle Employer) asked the contractor to stop work for one month. Contractor restricted labour entrance due to the reason of non availibility of site clearance.
3.In view of that contract workers unions are demanding lay off compensation as they were availlable during the period but contractor failed to provide work.
On the other contractor is rigid not to pay wages for one month siting the reason of No work No pay. IN THIS CASE ISN'T THE CONTRACTOR NEED TO PAY LAY OFF TO HIS WORKERS.?
4. FURTHER (IN A DIFFERENT CASE) WHETHER CONTRACTOR WHO HAS ENGAGED LABOUR FOR SIX MONTHS (LESS THAN 240 DAYS) IS LIABLE TO PAY RETRENCHMENT COMPENSATION TO THE WORKERS AFTER COMPLETION OF THE WORK?
