Whether there can be a principal employer in the absence of an establishment or a site?


The word 'site' or the 'place' may or may not belong to the principal employer, but this will not stand in the way of the application of the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act or in holding that a particular place or work site where industry, trade, business, manufacture or occupation is carried on is not an establishment within the meaning of the Act. For instance,  a ship or the vessel in which the work of repairs is carried on is a place and is also an establishment under section 2(1) (e) (ii) of Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970.
