Dear Saran,

As far as working conditions are concerned, labour laws do not differentiate between the employees on rolls and the contract workers. The latter are not the humans of the lesser mortal. Therefore, the working conditions are expected to be the same.

To find out about the working conditions of contract laborers as mentioned in labor laws, you'll need to refer to the relevant labor legislations in India. In India, the primary laws governing contract laborers' working conditions are the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970 and various state-specific rules and regulations. Here's where you can find information about the working conditions of contract laborers:

1. The Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970:
This is the central law that regulates the employment of contract laborers in establishments. It lays down various provisions related to working conditions, wages, hours of work, welfare measures, and more.

2. State-Specific Rules:
Many Indian states have their own rules and regulations related to contract laborers. These rules might provide additional details about working conditions and other aspects. You can search for the specific state's labor department website to find these rules.

3. Government Websites:
The Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, provides information and resources related to labor laws. Visit the official website to find resources, notifications, and information about various labor laws, including the Contract Labour Act.

4. Labor Law Books and Online Resources:
Labor law books and legal websites often provide comprehensive explanations of labor laws, including the Contract Labour Act. You can refer to these resources for detailed insights into the working conditions of contract laborers.

5. Legal Experts and Consultants:
If you need detailed and accurate information, consider consulting legal experts or labor law consultants. They can guide you through the specific provisions of the Act and its implications for working conditions.

6. Government Labor Offices:
You can visit or contact local labor offices or the regional offices of the labor department. They often provide assistance and guidance regarding labor laws, including the Contract Labour Act.

When researching working conditions for contract laborers, pay attention to aspects such as working hours, wages, health and safety measures, welfare facilities, prohibition of certain types of work, employment records, and more.


Rule 25 of the Contract Labour Central Rules 1971, specifies the terms and conditions of the license issued to the contractor and su-rule 25 (2) (iii) to (v) gives the service conditions of the contract labour. Similar provisions would be there in the State Rules applicable to you, they may be checked.
