A workman has been suspended pending enquiry w.e.f.1-8-09 due to some misbehaviours, domestic enquiry scheduled and completed on 30-8-09 and enquiry report was received on 5-9-09, our management decided to suspend him for 30 days without wages as per certified standing orders as a punishment. We issued punishment order dtd.10-9-09 and the punishment period is 7-9-2009 to 6-10-2009.
Kindly clarify the predated punishment is legally correct? If any case laws are there pl let me know.
Thanks and regards

I would like to know, a worker who is terminated prior to 15/9/2010 can approach the labour court directly, since by this time he has completed 45 days. Further, can he file directly. Some one guide me. Regards.
