I work in a PSU and engage a lot of contract workers through contractors. In our agreement with contractors, it is stipulated that contractor needs to register all his employees under PF and ESIC but many a times we noticed that contractor refuse to enroll all employees stating that it is optional for the employees earning more than Rs.6501. Please clarify is it correct on the part of contractor or as principal employer we can force contractors to enroll all employees in EPF?
