It is not the seniority or juniority or pwer which matters in defining the worman under Wages Act or workman compensation act rather it is the type of work/duty which matters.

In addition to Raj, under the Industrial Disputes Act 1947, person  subject to  Army Act, Airforce Act,Navy Act, Service in Police and prison, Managerial or Administrative are not within the meaning of Workman.

Please examine whether he has any supervisory function? If so his present salary ...........

Bank Officer's union leaders ( your's and others) can provide you with precedence and decisions. Kindly post such precedence and decisions in the forum.

Vijayarajan Sir, supervisory capacity itself is sufficient to exclude the Bank officer from the definition of workman.  The minimum wage for an unskilled person, leave the supervisor,  is above Rs 1600 per month now. 

Vijayarajan (Executive Director)     16 October 2011

Please examine whether the amount of 1600 has been enhanced to 10000/- in the recent amendment.

With the amendment also, a peron working in a supervisory capacity  in a Bank is likely to get more than Rs 10,000 per month and may not come under the definition of workman. If the supervisor is drawing  less than Rs 10,000 per month he is a workman.
