Dear Seniors,
Eligibility of Gratuity to contract labour. Case as follows;
Mr.X is a contract employee working with ABC Company (Contractor).
1. Mr.X deputed at one company (principal employer_1) & worked for 3 years (01-01-2001 to 31-12-2003).
2. Now contractor shifted Mr.X to other company (principal employer_2) & he worked there for 3 years (01-01-2004 to 31-12-2006).
My question is whether Mr.X is eligible for Gratuity or not? My confusion here is from contractor side he worked continuously 6 years with different principal employer. Please clarify.

CLRA or BOCW acts are made specially for contract labors, because their duty is not fixed, and their payout is mostly consolidated of all leaves / bonus / and other incentives .

Dear Colleague,
Yes he is eligible for gratuity.
He has apparently completed more than 5 years with the same employer ( the Contractor, who is his immediate Employer) though his stint with the two client employers is 3 years each.

Dear Priyatham,
As stated by you there is no discontinuation of services of the contract employee and was engaged from from 01-01-2001 to 31-12-2006. Hence, undoubtedly, the contract employee is entitled for payment of gratuity please.

the Contract labour was an employee of the Contractor with whom he had worked continuously for six years. He is eligible for gratuity from his Contractor (i.e. immediate employer)
