Dear Seniors,
I would like to pertain my query related to end of employment of Contract/ Casual worker.

Why Most of the companies ends employment of contract/casual workers after the completion of 6 month services?
Is this legal right of an employer? if so, in which act or rule it will falls?

Request you please provide your valuable suggestion!

There is no such right conferred on the employers. By terminating the employment of a casual worker in six months period, what the employers get is that they can avoid paying gratuity. But that also is risky because the right of any worker to get compensation for retrenchment, considering continuity of service for gratuity etc is not just six months but it is 240 days in 12 months or 120 days in six months period. Therefore, if the employer is giving a break of one or two days after 6 months of continuous employment, the employer will never earn anything. At the same time, if the employee has rendered 240 days in 12 months, he will get a lien on employment. Though he cannot demand regularisation, he can claim compensation if he is asked to leave forever.
