What is the rule in case of long leaves taken during service. For eg. if I have worked in an organization from 2002 to 2009, but had taken (approved) leaves for one year for family reasons, will that cause me to lose my eligibility for Gratuity? My employer refuses to pay me Gratuity stating this - can I do something to get it?
