Contract Labour Act, 1970

Contract Labour Act, 1970

India’s independent contractor law, Contract Labour Act 1970, defines independent contractors as a worker engaged in producing a given result. Essentially, this is similar to how the US defines an independent contractor as someone working for a company on a by-project basis.

India allows for independent contractors to work for multiple companies, if they so choose. The workers may also include temporary, fixed-term, and gig workers.
