Dear Seniors
Can you please elaborate if there are any rules prescribed by any laws regarding preparing full and final settlement of an employee? Or is it depended on Management policies? If there are no specific rules / policies related to full and final settlement what are the factors that are to be considered while preparing full and final settlement
Posted 2nd April 2012 From India, Pune
Dear Priti,
During Full and Final Settlement, You need to consider the leave (Privilage Leave), Bonus, Gratuity (If completed 5 yrs), and amount if any for the notice period. Rules may varied company to company.

Hai sir If an employee is resigned and relieved in his trainee period, then he is eligible for PL’s and Bonus. He couldn’t complete atleast 6 months also. Chiranajeevi

Dear preeti
It is not that the policy relating to full and final settlement works in vacume or on the whim of the management. The full and final settlement comprises settlement of all retiral benefits like P.F and gratuity, leave encashment, salary arrears if any and retrenchment compensation, if any payble etc. Therefore the procedures and time lines for payment of these dues are prescribed by the relevant statutes like the P.F Act or Gratuity Act or the Industrial Disputes Act or the Shops Act or the Factories Act etc. You need to go through them for a valid full and final settlement leaving no scope for raising disputes latter.

Dear Sir (s)
I shall be forever grateful if you reply of following...

1)Can an employee get deprived of his remote Location Allowance after service of two years, without any notice, circular, Office order or transfer Order? Even though he is working in same location and designation in the same Company. Employer has right to do the same?
2)If company offer and appoints someone on an special duty/leave pattern like 60:30 on/off, and he changed that special duty pattern without informing to the employee after completion of two succesive years, and when employee quit the company and asking for encashment of his balance/earned leaves, company tells him your duty pattern was changed from last year. Then Company has right to do the same? Even though his salary slip shows his duty pattern is 60:30
3)Can an employee ask for bonus and increment after confirmation of his service in the company? The gross salary was 12,500/- PM +30% North east allowance. (Basic salary was 7,300/-), designation Transport Officer.
4)Is company has right to give bullshitting/ threatening to the employee to continue his service even though he is not getting his committed allowance apart from no increment no bonus in his salary.
5)Is there some other way to collect his balance leave encashment and North East Allowance from employer, without taking any legal remedy?

I shall be highly obliged if someone give a right suggestion.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Saikumar Sir
Thanks a lot on your valuable information.I would still like to know that if in the appointment letter it is not mentioned that the company will deduct say 15 days for not completing clearance or not taking dues and still they are deducting then is it correct
Posted 4th April 2012 From India, Pune
Dear preeti

Your query is notclear as to what is not completing clearance or not taking dues. Further also see whether your company's plocy covers such acts on the part of the employee.

dear sr. and specially Mr. B.Saikumar,

there is a query regarding full and final settlement of an employee in a pvt Ltd. company, if the company has formulated such type of CTC structure in which Gratuity is a part of monthly CTC. then at the time of full and final settlement, should that employee be given that gratuity part as well which was a part of his monthly CTC (over and above gross salary) inspite of the no. of years of service whether it is 2,3 or 5 years or not.
Becoz normally companies gives gratuity for those employee who worked 5 or more no. of years (but i hope in this case gratuity is not a part of their employee monthly or yearly CTC.

please make it clear to me sir.
i'll be really thankful to you.

Dear Rishipal

If the employer is deducting any amount from your salary towards gratuity which is not envisaged under the Gartuity Act in the guise of CTC, then the employer, in my view , has to refund that amount at the time of F&F settlement even though you have not completed five years of service since it is your money to which you are enetitled.Otherwise, no settlement of gratuity is expected when you leave the service before completing five years.

Dear All,

Can a company reduces the basic of his employee at the the of end of services just to save money on it legal or no right to do so.

1.What are the grauity payment rules for indian workers working abroad (gulf regions).
2.Can a company forefits the grauity of his employee just on the background of misconduct with management.

The employer has the freedom to desing the pay structure provided it is not below the minimum wages in so far as the workmen are concerned.
The answer to this query no(1) dpends up on the fact whether the Indian workers retain the employer-employee relationship with the Indian establsihment.
as regards, query no.(2), teh Gartuity Act permits forfeiture depending up on the nature of misconduct and if there is finacial loss.

Dear SaiKumar Sir,

Thanks for sharing the above information.

I am trying to find out the exact rules of maximum time delay allowed to Pvt. Ltd. I.T. services firm for full and final settlement of a separated employee.

I got released on 28th May 2013 and still (after more than last 2 months) my F&F (in terms of experience letter and 1 month salary) is not yet done by the organisation although there are absolutely no dues from my side towards the organisation. HR is trying to postpone it with many irrelevant reasons. I think generally it should not take more than 30-45 days after separation.

Can you please guide me on this as how shall I handle the current situation and get my F&F done as early as possible?

Your advice would really be helpful for me.

Thanks & Regards,

Dear Sir

Please help me or suggest me for the below problem

I was working with a reputed firm, after 3.6 years i resigned and as per our company policy notice period is 90 days after confirmation. I served 45 days notice period as and i mailed the same while i send my resignation. At that time HR not created issue but after my 45 days notice period i went to abroad. But after that HR didn't given my full and final settlement even though I repaid my personal loan taken from my company. Then when i asked for relieving letter they asked to pay 48000 rupees . Even though i communicated that my situation is bad they didn't given any consideration and finally they have taken Rs.48000 from my side. In fact my net salary while i am resigning was around Rs.18000 only.

Note: initially they said an amount of rs 15000 once i agreed for that they send a mail that calculation was wrong exact figure is Rs.48000.

Kindly give me a suggestion on it, is it any law to protect employees interest?

Kindly suggest the way we proceed further with the Director... Looking forward valuable thoughts and guidelines.

Your contract does not specify notice period or it specifies that notice is not required ?
In case it does not specify notice period, as per standing orders one month notice is required to be given , so use that clause

Respected all,

I have been an English Language Trainer with British School of language for the past 3 months.
But now, I am quitting my job. I have provided them with 1 month notice as per the conditions of my contract.
The reason for my resign is that the company does not pay remuneration on time. For the 3 constant months i worked here, I did not get paid on time, I had to call the HR after the due date and she would say that she is not in charge of paying employees. Usually, the employees receive it after 22nd of the next month.

I am worried that they will procrastinate likewise when it will come to my Full and final settlement.
I want to be aware of the rules regarding full and final settlement. Though I did list it in my resign letter that my account should be full and finally settled on my relieving day.
Please tell me how long can a company procrastinate an employee's final dues.

Are there any rules that can save me from the same?
Please help . I will be more than thankful.
