ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT (SHRI RAMESWAR TELI)

(a) to (c): The Employees’ Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 (EPF & MP Act, 1952) applies to factories engaged in any industry specified in Schedule I and establishments belonging to class of establishments notified by the Central Government if they employ 20 or more persons. In case of any violation of the EPF & MP Act, 1952 and if amount due is not paid by the employers, actions are taken by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) against them through a quasi-judicial process. However, EPFO does not file cases against employees of any establishment covered under the said Act.
