We are an EPC company. Material transportation is essential part of our/any project. we are facing an issue with regards to compliance of daily wagers (Labour engaged for unloading truck). As unloading material is a one time activity consequently we cannot show them on our records and may be they we will not available next time also, they work only for money and need to pay on same day, in this situation what is the appropriate and safe practice to safe guard ourselves in view of labour laws compliance?

There is no mention in the post about the no. of days approximately required for unloading operations in a month or in a year.
If it is one or two days in a month the periodicity of which can not be predetermined, you can engage a specific no. of loadmen of the local area on tonnage basis and the entire sum of such wages can be divided among themselves. In that case, you may treat them as NMR workmen on daily wages. If not, you may ask the transporters to bring loadmen on their own subject to the condition of reimbursement of the actual unloading charges then and there by your Company.
If it is too frequent, you can engage a contractor for the purpose subject to the provisions of the CLRA Act,1970. But , ensure before hand that it is not prohibited by the appropriate Govt.
