How many employees are there in your concern/organization?
Are you covering EPF/ESI etc?
Do you have any bye-laws governing your body/organization?
Is the casual employee in your organization governed by appointment letter and relieving letter etc?
But casual employee also needs to be paid all statutory benefits, as such you can request your management to pay him a handsome amount of at least four months salary ( in lieu of gratuity/ as ex-gratia)

There are about 100 employees working here in part time, casuals and on rolls.
We dont cover ESI but given EPF to the employees on rolls. Regarding other statutory benefits. we will pay diwali ex-gratia to people and no appointment & relieving letters concept for casual labours.

If you are having 100 employees and not covering ESI it is a non-compliance under statute.
What is the reason for not contributing ESI?
Please do it immediately.
Ex-gratia in your workmen's case can be in the likes of Gratuity Act payment

As regards ESI, it is applicable if your operations are in ESI covered areas. As a social welfare agency, I presume your majority of field staff would be in rural or semi-urban areas where there is no coverage of ESI. Pl check. Since you are covering them under PF , there is no issue.
As regards the gardener, you may consider paying 2.5 to three times monthly salary in full and final settlement.
