If an organisation recruits management trainees, do they fall under the employee category ot not?

Hello mukundan,
It totally depends what kind of letter is been given to the candidate. Usually, trainees are not considered as employees but the PF, ESIC & other statutory compliances related amount from their salary gets deducted or not could be a deciding factor.
