Dual contractual employment

Dear All, I am an HR with a consulting firm. Would be great if someone can help me with the below doubt: Lets say Mr. A has a Direct Contract to make a building with an employer for an 8 - 9 hrs job. Now Mr. A wants to sign another contract for a building with a different employer but the second contract will have no time boundation. Is this permitted under the Contract Labour Act? Are there any restrictions? Or will this be treated as a freelance job and covered under a different act? Would be thankful for the help.

If the first contract is specifically barring dual services for commercial gain then you cannot enter into a second contract.

Whetrher this service can be termed as freelancing or not will depend on the terms of the appointment letter.

can you please clarify more whether he is a full time employee in first contract, or first contract is a contract for service or employment contract.

if its a service contract/jon contract, he is a service provider than the second can be executed.

and if the first contract is contract of service for employment, then there is a restrain on dual employment.

Thanks Rohan Sanjay, in this case, the first contract is also a contract of service and has no clause prohibiting any employment or business for commercial gain. Thanks, Lovy
