Order to ensure Minimum Wage to Contract Labour
To ensure payment of notified minimum rates of wages to all categories of worker in both organized and unorganized sectors, an order has been recently issued directing all the employers, including contractors, to upload their employee and payment details on their websites. Employers have been given 90 days time for compliance. The Labour Department officials ordered that no fresh license and no renewal of licenses and registration certificates shall be done by Labour Department under the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970. Employers have also been directed to pay wages to workers by ECS or Cheque. Defaulters shall be prosecuted under the provisions of law.
