In India United Mills Ltd., Bombay vs Rashtriya Mill Mazdoor Sangh, (1959) IILLJ 120 Bom, while referring to Labour Appellate Tribunal, it was cited:

"In the case of discharge it is nothing more than a termination of service which gives the employee the right to his full provident fund and his gratuity and any other benefits to which he may be entitled. In the case of dismissal an employee would be deprived of quite a number of benefits."

As far as experience certificate is concerned, the following provisions of THE INDUSTRIAL EMPLOYMENT (STANDING ORDERS) CENTRAL RULES 1946, are clear about necessity of issuing certificate of experience:

16. Certificate on termination of service.-

Every permanent workman shall be entitled to a service certificate at the time of his dismissal, discharge or retirement from service.

20. Service certificate.-

Mattersrelating to service card, token tickets, certification of service,change of residential address of workers and record of age:

(ii) Certification of service.-

Besides in some States Shops and Establishment Acts, provisions are enacted to similar effect.
