Dear all
We have taken one un-skilled person on outside contract for housekeeping job. The contractor is charging us on monthly basis the bonus @8.33% which is usually paid to the employee annually in October.
In this regard, i would like to know the following:
1. Whether we should pay the bonus or it is liability of the contractor? I think the contractor should pay the bonus out of his profits and should not be taken from the principal employer.
2. I came to know from some sources that if your company pays bonus to all your regular employees then you have to pay to contractual also. Is it true?
3. If it is to be paid by principal employer, then what are the documents we should ask the contractor for bonus payment like bonus payment slip etc.
Kindly suggest.
best regards,

Hi Priyanka,
If your company is paying bonus monthly to the contractor then you have to ask to pay the bonus to their employees. It is the total liability of the contractor but you have to ensure becuase you are paying on monthly basis.
For this you can ask for bonus register "C" in which bonus have to be distributed and one thing you can ensure that contractor will distribute the bonus amount in presence of the HR representative of your company.

Dear Mr. Pal
Thanks for your reply. Its really very helpful.
One thing i would like to know is whether payment of Bonus is principal employers' responsibility or Contractor's responsibility?

During full & final settlement before October, Contractor are not settling the Bonus of the workers.Could you kindly confirm under which section as per Payment of Bonus Act/CLRA Act/any other act is it mention that Bonus should be settled during F&F before October or should be settled later and if not the said amount should be deposited with applicable fund. What is the proof of persons receiving of Bonus if he has regisned before October.
