The Sales Promotion Employees
(Conditions of Services) Act, 1976

The Sales Promotion Employees (Conditions of Services) Act, 1976

The medical representatives and other persons engaged in sales promotion do not come under the purview of the definition of ‘workman’ under the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 and as such they are deprived of any protection in respect of security of employment and other benefits under that act. Consequently, The Sales Promotion Employees (Conditions of Services) Act, 1976 was legislated for the purpose of regulating the conditions of service of the Sales Promotion Employees.

Under the provisions of this Act, the employers are required to allow earned leave or medical leave to sales promotion employees, issue appointment letters to these employees and to maintain certain records in respect of these employees.

By an amendment in the Act, the provisions of Workmen's Compensation Act, Industrial Disputes Act, Minimum Wages Act, Maternity Benefit Act, Payment of Bonus Act and the Payment of Gratuity Act have been made applicable to sales promotions employees.

The Inspecting Officers/inspectors of the Labour Department enforce the provisions of the Act in their respective territorial jurisdictions assigned to them under the administrative control of the respective Labour Officer, Assistant Labour Commissioners and Deputy Labour Commissioners. The penalty provided for violation of the provisions of the Act is fine upto Rs. 1,000.
