Now-a-days, many activities, like house keeping, security, canteen, logistic, maintenance, pay-roll, recruitment etc are outsourced by the organizations due to variety of reasons. For instance, to concentrate in the core activity, less legal compliance, cost reduction, less labour problem and many more. Even some of the organizations prefer to outsource their core activity too.
The Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970, prescribes certain rules and regulations which are to be complied with before engaging the contract labour. The Apex Court has discussed in different times and many cases those are to be understood or else all contract labour may be declared your workmen or the employer may be subject to penal consequences.
It is therefore essential for the executives to know the legal issues involved and compliances required either before and/or after outsourcing the core and/or ancillary activities of the organizations where they are working.
The intention behind conducting this workshop is to provide a platform where the participants would gain the first-hand experience to the practical inputs with a view to honing their skills in managing to outsource legally and efficiently.
