In case the CONTRACTOR engages women Employees and they are sent for work at the Principal Employers what are the special provision in the CLRA Rules on welfare measures for them?
Rule25. Of the CLRA Rules provides that Every licence granted under sub-section (1) of Sec. 12 shall be in Form VI.and (2) Every licence granted under sub-rule (11) or renewed under 29 shall be subject to the following conditions, namely:
(a) In every establishment where twenty or more women are ordinarily employed as contract labour, there shall be provided two rooms of reasonable dimensions for the use of their children under the age of six year
(b) one of such rooms shall be used as a play-room for the children and the other as bed-room for the children;
(c) the contractor shall supply adequate number of toys and games in the play¬room and sufficient number of -cots and bedding in the sleeping room;
(d) the standard of construction and maintenance of the creches shall be such as may be specified in this behalf by the Chief Labour Commissioner-(Central);
By the above provision in case the Staffing Agency employs 20 or more women the necessity of compliance of the above provision may be necessitated.
It is understood that implementation of the above provision is presently limited to Factories and the time when it is extended to all Establishments is not far off.
