Do you own a business that hosts more than ten employees? Have you joined the ESIC scheme? This is a body that is statutorily administered and was established under the Employee State Insurance Act of 1948. The body is composed of representatives on behalf of employers, central government, employees, medical professionals, and parliament members. However, there're some governments such as the Indian that extends the provisions of the scheme to other class of establishments such as hotels and restaurants, cinemas and theatre as well as commercial and shop establishments. But, who represents these establishments to the national board? They're called the ESI consultants.

ESI consultants are professionals who are highly skilled in matters relating to employee state insurance. They help in implementing the 1948 Act that was enacted to provide certain benefits to employees such as cash benefits, medical reliefs, pension to a deceased worker, compensation for injuries and maternity benefits in cases of maternity, sickness, and employment injuries.
