The effect of non-compliance of the provisions of registration by the principal employer is of two-fold - first he can be prosecuted u/s 24 of the CLRA Act,1970 by the enforcement officers under the labor commissionerate which may include imprisonment or levy of penalty or with both and the second and the most important consequence is that the entire contract labor would be deemed as the direct employees of the establishment in respect of all employment benefits and all other statutory purposes.
The poster can go through section 23 of the Act regarding the punishment for violation of any licence conditions by the contractor which is also the same like under section 24.

The earlier legal position on the engagement of CL without licence/registration was that the engagement was sham and the contract labour should be regularised. But now only the penalties are attracted.Still it is advised to take registration by PE and engage CL only through contractors with licence.
