Contract Labour - Dealing with a necessary evil

Contract labour refers to those persons who are employed by or through a contractor by an establishment. Persons employed as contract labour are not direct employees of such establishment or organization and hence form a separate class of workmen in itself. As a result the enactments in respect of labour such as the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, Factories Act, 1948 and so on do not apply to contract labour. The legislation in respect of contract labour is Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970 read with the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Central Rules, 1971 formulated there under.

The May 2016 issue of the Business Manager monthly contains our cover feature expounding the legal framework surrounding contract labour in India.
