The Bombay Labour Welfare Fund Act 1953 is applicable to all factories, establishments which are defined under the Bombay Shops & Estt Act & certain others. The employee's contribution is Rs.12 and matching employer contribution is Rs.36 per month. The 'employee' covered under the Act is well defined. Extension or importing definition from other Acts are not warranted. Delay in payment attracts penal interest of 2% per month. The question of who is a manager or supervisor is a matter of fact which has to be proved in case of any dispute.

Thanks a lot for all your inputs.
However, it sounds like a very controversial discussion.
After studying the acts, very frankly even I could not conclude on this matter.
However, will try and figure out what can be done by June.

There is absolutely no confusion about the meaning of 'manager' in the context of the Labour Welfare Fund Act as the courts have clearly set at rest the issue as reflected in the replies of some members above.

How an establishment can be exempted under the Karnataka Labour Welfare Fund Act, 1965. Kindly guide us on what basis we can seek exemption from making the contribution under the above act.

The definition of 'employee' in the Maharashtra Labour Welfare Fund Act 1953 Section 2 excludes person who is employed mainly in managerial capacity and supervisors drawing salary in excess of Rs 3500/-carrying out function mainly of managerial nature. It also excludes an apprentice under the Apprentices Act 1961. Therefore no need to import any definition from other Acts as it is clear that Managers and Supervisors are not employee as per this Act itself.
