Dear Norazizah_s

If the company closed down, then the terminology 'termination' should not be used.

It is Retrenchment. I feel it can be mentioned as Retrenchment due to redundancy.

Please give your opinion in above terminology.

With warm regards

For closing down a company which has had an employment strength of 50 or more employees, a 'simple' letter will not be sufficient but it is to be prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Industrial Disputes Act. Since by closure of the company the employees will become jobless they will have to be given notice in advance (at least one month) or paid notice pay in lieu of notice and they should also be paid retrenchment compensation at the rate of 15 days pay for every completed year of service. This is in addition to gratuity payable under the Payment of Gratuity Act.

Attached please find the form Q which is to be sent to Labour Authorities informing the closure of the company. The same is used to inform the employees also. Hope the same would be useful to you.

Sir, One of my Branch is closing down. I have only 2 employees in the branch. One officer & one peon. We are vacating the premises for which three month's notice has already been given. My officer will be transferred to another Branch. We have verbally told our peon about this, but he refuses to go/ resign.
As per terms of his letter we have one month's time in our hand to give him a notice. Should we give him that. He will get all his terminal dues. But nothing more. Because Company is doing very bad. We r not even getting our salary for more than 2 mths. now.
By doing so, will we have any legal complications. Can he go legally ?

An early reply would be appreciated.

Thanks
