Tweet on Twitter Hands that serve Since there is so little information available on local statutes despite their importance to specific issues, I have decided to write down about the ones that I work with.
Since I am working out of Mumbai, I usually get to deal with Bombay statutes most of the time. I have already written about a couple of statutes over here earlier. Hands that serve The Maharashtra Labour Welfare Fund Act, provides for the constitution of a fund for the financing of activities to promote welfare of labour in the state of Maharahstra.
Any establishment which is covered under the Bombay Shops and Establishments Act, or employs at least 5 employees is required to make bi-annual contributions in the months of June and December every year to the Maharashtra Labour Welfare Fund with respect to each of its employees including contract labourers except those employed in managerial capacity or supervisory role drawing monthly salary of more than INR 3, For this purpose, apart from paying its own contribution with respect to each employee covered under the statute, the employer needs to deduct a contribution amount from the salary of the employee as well and submit such amount to the labour welfare fund.
For this purpose, employers are allotted code numbers. The Government also adds some contribution with this which goes to the Labour Welfare Fund administered by a Welfare Commissioner. The employees contribution is Rs. Whereas the company contributes is three times what the employee contributes, that is — Rs. Dues and penalty Any dues under this act are treated as land revenue due to the state government.
If an employer is not paying contributions due to the Board, the commissioner will issue a notice to pay the dues. If the employer fails to pay despite notice, interest will be charged on the dues. If the employer does not deduct employees contribution in a timely manner, employer may have to pay it himself. There is no provision for imprisonment in the statute. There are similar welfare fund acts in many other states.
