Since we don't want to increase the Manpower of Packing Plant & to comply 100% legal compliance like compulsory W/off, OT, Leave etc.

We want to adjust one mechanical workmen to work both in Mechanical as well as in Packing Department. The issue is that the contractor of both the department is different & Contractor A (Mechanical) is paying on monthly basis & Contractor B (Packing) will paid on piece rate basis.

Under Section 60 in The Factories Act, 1948, there is restriction on double employment
60. Restriction on double employment.—No adult worker shall be required or allowed to work in any factory on any day on which he has already been working in any other factory, save in such circumstances as may be prescribed.

But Factory Act is more on working in 2 different factories & as far as I know, haven't read anywhere regarding 2 contractors in the same factory.

Suppose we allowed double employment then How we calculate his working days, can we deposit PF in two accounts, can we consider him 1 FTE or two, who will take Employee compensation policy. In case of mis happening, who will pay.

On the above issue, your guidance is required immediately.
