Dear Ignitos,

When your establishment is covered by PF any person who works in your establishment who is not otherwise excluded shall be covered by PF. Similar is the case with ESI also. Therefore, even if the contractor has less than 20 employees, his employees working for you should be covered by EPF. So, he has to take PF registration. An establishment which employs nine employees may have to go for voluntary coverage of PF. If he fails to get voluntary coverage, you being the principal employer has to give coverage to contractors workers (who are engaged in your establishment) under your PF code.

Regarding requirement of contract labour registration and licence, as you engage only eight contract labours you need not take contract labour registration. Similarly, the contractor also need not take licence. But if the total number of contract labours engaged by you from different contractors (say, Security personnels engaged by a contractor, housekeeping labour supplied by another contractor etc) exceed 19 (becomes 20) you have to take registration from the District Labour Officer.
