Many employers outsource business processes of their establishment to contractors and
also engage workers in or in connection with the work of the establishment by or through
contractors and in such cases employer’s liability under EPF & MP Act, 1952 is payable by the
Principal employers. The contractors are registered independently as establishment with EPFO
and they are required to report EPF compliance in r/o workers provided to their Principal
Employers through ECRs. The UANs of the workers and the attendance / wage payment
records are verified by the Principal employers to settle the claims.
