Harsh Kumar MehtaDear Member,
The implementation of Employees' State Insurance Act in any factory/establishment is compulsory and employment of minimum number of 10 or more persons is required in order to obtain Code Number. The coverage is not optional.
However, in respect of Immediate employer (contractor), compliance can be made on the code number allotted to principal employer provided his unit alongwith the employees of the contractor are otherwise coverable in the said Act.
