Employees State Insurance Act 1948

Purpose of the Employees Insurance Act

The Employees Insurance Act has been enacted to provide certain benefits to the employees in case of sickness, maternity and employment injury and make provisions in respect thereof.

Under this Act contribution is made not only by the employee but also by the employer. The claims by the employees against the employer where the relationship of the employer and employee exists were meant to be governed by the Employees Insurance Act alone.
