Teamlease Bags 4 New Contracts from Auto Ancilliary Companies

To generate 2000 new jobs in the next 3 months

Pune: TeamLease Contact Service (TLCS), the blue collar employment unit of TeamLease Services Private Limited has recently bagged 4 new clients from the auto ancillary industry based out of Pune. The new contracts potentially allow creation of 2000 new jobs in the next 3 months.

Laborers would be sourced from Nasik, Satara, Saurashtra, Vidharba the industrial belts, to an extent sub-contractors and smaller villages around Pune. There will be primarily two interface points from TLCS, one for the client which would consist of members who are labor law experts and the other, implants or supervisors to take care of the day-to-day needs to the laborers.

According to Sangeeta Lala, Vice-President, TeamLease Contract Service "Markets are slowly but steadily waking up to hiring accredited firm to take charge of their factory floor manpower needs. The shift in services to an accredited firm vis-vis local contractor can be attributed to two reasons - to ensure complete compliance and process standardization as required by CLRA 1970 and the penalty for non-compliance"

Client benefits

It is estimated that 93% of the 400 million employed in India is in the unorganized sector which is predominantly the blue collar segment. Unorganized sector is completely outside the purview of most labour laws and this includes social security. Extent of the 'damage' to the exchequer due to a large un-organized sector (tax revenues) in 2005-06 in the Manufacturing sector GDP was Rs. 5,14,002 crores (advanced estimates) in current prices. About 32 percent of this is accounted for by the unregistered or unorganized manufacturing sector; that is, about Rs. 162,000 crores.

Thus arises the need to formalize the informal sector. The reality in blue collar temping today is that there is no single organized 'contractor' at a national or local level. Many of the so-called contractors offer this as an added service with other businesses, minus the required bandwidth or focus on service delivery standards. This has left a huge gap in the market in compliance adherence and worker welfare. The need to bridge this gap has prompted TeamLease to extend its current service offerings into this space.

In other words, TeamLease on behalf of the workforce would be responsible for

1. TeamLease will act as the statutory employer of the workers - Manages all employee benefits, day to day HR administrative activities like attendance, leave etc.
2. Post the Selection process, substantial amount of familiarization of employee benefits like wage structure, statutory coverage like PF, ESIC needs to be done with the workers, since majority at that level have never received such benefits or are first time job seekers.
3. The workers also undergo an induction training at the time of joining which address employment related issues, safety policies, provision of basic welfare amenities like first aid, washroom etc.
4. Specific skills training, if required, can be facilitated by TeamLease.
5. Typically under local contractors once the fixed term of employment is completed, they are forced out of the system (240 days as per the Industrial Dispute Act), result of which they end up with no jobs or if they do typically they are in an unrelated field. Skill development never reaches any maturity. However in the case of TeamLease workers are moved to another organization that requires similar skill sets. This in turn helps to develop a skilled workforce.

TLCS client responsibilities in a nutshell

TeamLease would be responsible for all manpower projections, facility provision, payroll related operations, facilitating inspections, review and monthly MIS, maintaining compliance adherence processes and recurring workflows, contract and license agreement.

TeamLease recommendations as per the TeamLease India Labor report 2006

Labour laws if implemented and changes included in IDA these recommendations will harmonize labour laws under five heads of industrial relations, wages, social security, safety and welfare and working conditions. While flexibility will improve in the organized labour market, there will simultaneously be better social security provisions in the unorganized one. Implementation of the latter of course remains a problem. But it is the political economy that proves to be intractable.

One answer could be to amend the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution and move labour from the Concurrent List to the State List. That way, States that wish to reform, can go ahead, without waiting for the Central government to resolve problems centered around coalition politics.
