It is a universally accepted fact that it is neither the designation nor the salary which determines the status of one's employment as that of a workman or otherwise. While critically analyzing the definition of the term "workman" u/s 2(s) of the Industrial Disputes Act,1947, if it is clear in the first instance that the nature of the work performed is of manual, unskilled,skilled, technical, operational or clerical, the individual becomes a workman. To my understanding, a video editor just edits the videos taken by the videographers and as such it is purely a technical work. Therefore, no predominant supervisory activity is attached to this post irrespective of the amount of salary paid.
Hence I would suggest that the poster can seek his remedy under the ID Act,1947 as stated earlier by me. 2nd March 2019 From India, Salem
