In January 31, 2006, SC has declared that Apprentice, Trainees are not entitled for PF Benefits.
So Can anyone tell me the recent amendment in this regard??
Are they eligible for PF & ESI....
Dear Candidate,
With reference to your query, as per Factories Act, The trainees / apprentice are covered under ESIC act.
Hi Yesuraja,
Apprentice who are undergoing training as part of their curriculum are not eligible for PF, ESI. However trainees who were employed on full time basis are eligible for PF, ESI.
Dear Mr V.M.Lakshminarayanan
Thank you for your response.
Our company is registered under shops and establishments act in Karnataka. So whether the apprenticeship/trainees who are on probation period covered under EPF & ESI?
