You are not bound. As both contractors are hiring people's as daily wagers... you are by no stretch of law bound to take action because of two reasons...
1) labours are 14 in number.
2) If group of persons approached you by some representation collectively made by them forward to your contractor who employs them as being person responsible who directly managed there know how affairs.
Try to manage administratively as linger on Ball in anothers cap.
You are not standing anywhere in violation of Payment of Bonus Act. As you are not the dealing hand.
