Every interstate migrant workmen shall be issued passbook by the contractor containing details of employment and shall be provided other benefits as provided in the Act.
All Principal employers are requested to advise your members who are employing (or have employed during last 12 months) the interstate migrant workers through outsourcing as Principal Employers or providing the interstate migrant workers as contractors to fulfil their statutory obligations set out in the Act.
