The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to act tough against private contractors who short-change their employees and violate labour laws by withholding their payments.
“It will be the responsibility of respective civic departments to ensure that the contractor follows the directions of the PMC and doesn’t violate labour laws.
AdvertisingThe civic body’s decision comes after an internal inquiry revealed that contractors who provided manpower to carry out various civic projects often violated labour laws.
An order, issued by Additional Municipal Commissioner Rubal Agarwal, stated that the civic body’s employees’ union had pointed out the violations.
After civic officials held a meeting with representatives of the employees’ union over the issue, Agarwal also issued directives to respective civic departments to ensure that the private contractors carrying out their projects didn’t violate any labour laws.
