The ESI Act applies to factories/establishments in the organized sector wherein 10 or more people are employed. Also, this Act applies to employees drawing monthly wages up to Rs. 21,000/-.
Employees have to contribute 0.75 percent of their salary every month to join and take advantage of the ESIC scheme. an employer contributes 3.25 percent of the salary of his employee on his behalf.
Under ESIC, employees and their families get various types of medical services. Not only this, but the employees involved in this scheme also get an unemployment allowance.
