Employees getting salary/wages below Rs 15000/- p.m. are covered
Return needs to be send every quarter along with the Cheque/ DD
Rate is Rs 5 employee share & Rs 10 employer share i.e. Rs 15 per employee per month.

Sir,
We have been apprised by the labour deptt. that each and every employee has to contribute as the Act itself tells about employee only without defferentiation. Hence please further elaborate and also if possible who are elibile and for what benefits and how to proceed for that.
Thanks,

Dear All,

Regarding Haryana Labour Welfare Fund Act

Applicability of the Act

This Act is applicable to a “factory” as defined in clause (m) of section 2 of the Factories Act, 1948 or any place which is deemed to be a factory under sub section (2) of section 85 of that Act includes any premises including the predicts thereof wherein and in any part of which any industry within the meaning of clause (j) of section 2 of the Industrial Dispute Act, 1947, is carried on and also includes a shop or a commercial establishment within the meaning of the Punjab Shops and Commercial Establishment Act, 1958, in which, on any day, ten or more employees are employed or were employed during the preceding twelve months.


What to be complied ?

<DIV class=MsoNormal style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify">
Every employer of an establishment shall maintain a register of wages in Form-A and a consolidated register of unclaimed wages and fines in Form-B(LW)(Rule-22).

Every employer shall by the 31st January , every year forward to the Welfare Commissioner, a copy of the abstract from the register in Form-B(LW) pertaining to the previous year. (Rule-22)

Every employer shall pay, all fines realized from the employees & remaining unutilized and all unpaid accumulations held by the employer, in cash or by money order or by postal order or by demand draft or cheque drawn on any schedule Bank duly crossed in favour of the 'Welfare Commissioner, Haryana, 30 Bays Building, Sector 17, 2nd Floor, Room No. 51, Chandigarh (section-3 & 9).

All fines realized from the employees and unpaid accumulations during the quarters, ending the 31st March, the 30th June, the 30th September and the 31st December shall be paid by the employer by the 1st May, the 1st August, the 1st November and the 1st Feburary, succeeding such quarter and a statement giving particulars of the amounts so paid shall be submitted by him alongwith such payment to the Welfare Commissioner.

<B><FONT face=Arial>Besides, this Act requires each employer and employee to contribution ten rupees and five rupees, respectively, per month to the Fund. This amount is required to be deposited by 31st December of every year (section-3,9 & 9A).

Dear
Now the contribution of the employee & employer may be sent annually. There is no need to sent the quarterly returns. There is no limitation for deduction of employee's contribution as far as the monthly wages/salary is concerned. However, Haryana Labour Welfare Board is at present extending the welfare schemes only to its workers & now supervisors also who are drawing wages upto Rs.15000/-pm.

Sir,
This I think is illogical that contribution is to be given by each employee as per the definition without fixing salary and grade limit and welfare is to be rendered to only workers who are getting Rs.15000 p.m.

Dear Ramesh,
I also support your view point. Benefit should be provided to all the employees who are contributing to the fund. Different Industrial association of Gurgaon have also express these views before the Chairman of the Haryana Labour Welfare Board on his visit to Gurgaon. Considering this view point Board have also covered the supervisors category for extending the benefits.
