Can an apprentice file an application under Section 33-C(2) of the Industrial Disputes Act for recovery of stipend ?
Section 33-C(2) of the Industrial Disputes Act provides a remedy only to a workman to make an application for recovery of the amount due to him. In so far as an apprentice is concerned, there is no employer-employee relationship. Moreover, stipend is not remuneration payable by an employer to his employees. Note: Held in Achutan v. Babu, 1996 II C.L.R. 472 (Kerala).
