Labour Law IndexTrainee are those people that are taken into the organisation to impart training to them. They must be there as part of a curriculum that ask for such training. Like Industrial Training of ICAI/ICSI/CWA or Apprentice under NCVT/ITI/SCVT. One cannot take any adhoc person and call them trainee. So only if the above is true then no PF or ESI applies.

Rajesh Kumar DubeyDear Mohan,
All the person being kept as Trainee either on Fixed Term will come under PF & ESI. Perhaps your organization having Standing Order and one category of workmen are also defined as Trainee which mostly occurs. Therefore you can engage people as per requirement and after stipulated time you can pay off that fellow. But you must ensure that appointment advice must ensure period / tenure of engagement.
