Conceptually, Locum Employees are a stand in ones engaged for a short duration till the regular employee is back and hence they cannot be planned to be made regular. Instead of locum you could consider appointing them on temporary basis and if found fit, give them a regular offer with probation followed by confirmation in case of satisfactory service.

Dear KK,
Good Morning ,Good to knew about the same .So which designation can we provide them in Offer Letter .(For ex: You will be designated as Worker etc. -Temporary basis for 2 - months . Is it Fine .

Dear colleague,

There is no concept of worker employed as 'Locum'. If anything , it has to be on temporary/ fixed period appointment basis

If appointed for three months at a stretch, the major statutory benefits will include, ESI, PF, Earned leave encashment and bonus after completion of the financial year and if worked for 30 days'.

The designation will have to be based on the category ie mazdoor/helper, fitter , operator etc as per skill level and prevailing in the organization for other workers.

Most important is to clearly include , inter alia, clause in the appointment letter that this appointment is purely on temporary basis for a period of ---- months and will automatically come to an end on the last date of the appointed period.
