DescriptionThe Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act lays great emphasis on the flexibility of structure and generation of employment. The employers firmly believe that employment of contract labour has become essential in view of rigidities of labour laws providing job security to the employees who are `workmen` under the Act.

However, the subject of contract labour has attracted much debate during two decades. ├é
