One of my friend used to work for satyam and completed 4 years and 7 months. He was put on Long Leave with only Basic Pay which forced him to quit the job without completing a tenure of 5 years. Under such circumstances will he be eligible for Gratuity as he wanted to continue.

There is supreme court judgment to the line. If an employee works for 4 continuous years and for 240 days in the 5th year, he is entiled for gratuity. If yr friend has completed 240 days in the 5th year, he would be entitled to.

As all of us aware the satyam scam, concerned person has completed 4 years and 210 days of continuous services with lot of appreaciation in work. It was unfortunate that he was put on long leave with basic pay due to preveling circumstances in satyam. He would have continued services but not on the cost of Basic pay hence has to resign the job for better prospects. Can he be elgible under such cirmcumstances.

He is eligible for Gratuity. There is no doubt about this. He can prefer a claim and if the company refuses to pay, he can approach the Deputy Commissioner of Labour who has jurisdiction over his last place of working. There are a few judgements which says that if a person has worked for 240 day in the preceding 12 months, the period will be reckoned and if has put in a minimum of 240 days in the fifth year of his service, he can make a strong claim, sustainable in law.

concerned person has not completed 240 days in the fifth year and not eligible. Is there any clause by which he can fight for as he would have continued service but company has given him a notice of 3 months to look for other job and during this 3 months he will be only eligble for basic pay. Under such cirmcumstances can he fight for bec inspite of good service record missing gratuity by 30 days is unfair just because of company scam and policy in the last moment

All i wanted to ask is one thing 4 yrs and 240 days is eligibility for any individual but what if u are shortfall of just 30 days against your will and wish, concerned person was aware of the fact and wanted to continue service by another month during this period satyam came up with a new policy under which employee will be given only basic pay and a time period of 3 months to look for alternative job. Now under such circumstances priority shifts when your job is at risk bec if he waits for grattuity eligiblety he will loose job. Can he fight for Gratuity.. if yes plz let me know how to proceed

before putting down the papers concerned person knew that he was missing the gratuity just by 30 days but had no choice because 3 months of period was given to him by company to look for alternative job just because company is in bad shape his tenure and performance was excellent and was star performer

Dear friend, completing the continous service of 4 years 8 months can be considered as completion of 5 years. sathish

Dear All,
I was worked with one organization for 4 Years & 294 Days and resigned from job but Company is not giving gratuity. I had approached Company officials several times and communicated them about decision of Madras High Court in oral as well as in writing then also I have not received my gratuity amount. I had given written humble requesting letter for gratuity then also I have not received gratuity amount.
Please suggest what should be done to get gratuity amount.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Mr. Khilaigi,
Are these 240 days referring to only business days or is it equivalent to approx 8months? Also if employee has taken leave in these 240 days or any public holiday was there then does it increase by those many no. Of days? One last question, does these 240 days include notice period tenure of employee as well?

Maternity Benefit act applies to all establishments employing 10 or more employees.
As per the MB Act employee is eligible for 26 weeks (182 days) leave with salary. If employee covered under ESI she can claim the MB through ESI.
Leave before commencement of Maternity leave can be adjusted against accrued leave, subject to availability of leave for the individual and employer approval.
