#AnonymousThere are lot of ambiguity in the act. It says applicable to establishment having 50 or more employees does it mean if establishment have employees at different locations totaling to more than 50 the crèche facility will be provided at all the locations ???? Also if there is no nursing mother then also Company have to provide the facility. Further the act doesn't provide till what age the crèche facility should be provided. Is it till the time kid starts going to proper school??
Further what should be the distance/timing of this facility and who will bear the cost. Are male employees allowed to bring their kids to crèche as its the responsibility of both the parents to take care of the child. Please of somebody can thorw light on these concerns.
