I am working in construction firm.
Recently, I have received demand notice in the name of one of the partners from Maharashtra Labour Welfare fund regarding payment of Outstanding dues.
My query is whether my firm is actually liable to pay those dues.
They have asked me to put my ESSTT code number of our establishment on the back side of demand draft, What is ESSTT ?

Dear Caniks,
Maharashtra Labour Welfare Fund Act is applicable to your company if your company has engaged 5 and more employees. If this Act is applicable to your company, your company is liable to obtain registration under the Act i.e. establishment code by making an application to the authority under it and pay the contribution under this Act including of employees share, twice in a year. Your company requires to make a deduction of MLW Fund as employee contribution from the salary of employees in month of every June and December and add to it 3 times as employer contribution.

Dear Mr. Kaniks,
If your firm has engaged more than 5 employees, your firm is liable to pay the contribution to MLWF on a six monthly basis. The contribution amount is Rs.48 per employee for six month. I suggest that you consider the notice seriously and approach the Labour Inspector at Sahakarnagar, Pune office to clear out the dues.
For any more help, you can get in touch with me

Thanks you so much for ur timely replies.
Now my query is What does mean an Employee as far as as this Act is concerned?
As we are in the construction business, are the labour workers will also covered under the definition of Employee?

Dear Caniks, As per my concerns, workers are not considered as employees and their payment is on the basis of 26 days. Sincerely, Mimu143
