IMPORTANCE OF CLRA LICENCE
IMMEDIATE LEGAL QUESTIONS FOR INDIAN STAFFING COMPANIES
What will be the risk if the Contractor engaged does not hold a valid CLRA licence?
In such a case the Principal Employer loses the opportunity to distinguish his direct employees from those of the Contractors .He will also run the risk of the Contractors employees claiming permanency.
The risk is compounded because of the definition of 'workman' in section 2(1)(b) of the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970, implies that if the workman is not hired through contractor holding a valid license under the CLRA Act, he would be a treated as workman employed by the Principal Employer ..
It is always a safe bet to get a CLRA Licence.It is a Protective Shield ,
