Hi, im a software programmer worked for a software firm in hyderabad, the company was not paying our salaries on time and this was going on for 6-8 months, we sent so many mails but they kept telling us that we'll pay but it will take some time, from Feb 2013 we stopped going to work, we didnt resign from the company, few days before we talked to HR and now he is saying

" And foremost we have received your formal resignation by today (4/7/2013 -11:30 pm) via mail & as per our attendance record you were only 4 days present for the month of Feb.2013 & 9th/02/2013 was your last attendance & that too without any proper official intimation or information you have stopped resuming to your duties thereafter for the same & as per our company service terms and conditions, a confirmed employee has to give at least 2 calendar months prior notice before leaving the organization which you have failed to do so and company has the rights to seize your due payments according to the same."

Can anyone help me or suggest me and my colleagues what can we do to get our salary dues....

Do you have copy/save mail you sent to Hr for salary? Do yo Copy/save mail you received from Hr?. What assignment did you get before feb'2013 from Company? Tell them that you did so much work before feb'2013 and we did not get salary till feb'2013, but we did not give resignation. Since we did not get salary so we went to earn money for our empty stomach anywhere.

Hello Ashok pal,
While what you suggested ['Since we did not get salary so we went to earn money for our empty stomach anywhere'] may be FACTUALLY correct, I doubt if it can resolve the problem the thread-initiator has.
To the Thread-initiator--Ashok Pal has however mentioned a few very crucial aspects--have you saved the mails you mentioned you wrote/got reg this subject?
Also, what is the strength of the company--especially who got effected due to non-payment of the salaries?
And lastly, what is your experience level & skillset?
Suggest post your resume in this Forum--some members COULD help you out to move forward--this is NOT to say that you should forget your dues.
All the Best.

Guys thanks for your replies and suggestions.
After i talked to the HR and the management they released a mail to me stating that we'll clear the dues on installment basis and the dates were given on May 5th, May 20th and June 5th of 21013, and i didnt get the money on the respective dates. The strength of the company is 40 - 55 employees, two departments have been terminated and only one department is functioning at present and they are receiving their salaries on time. We are a people of 10 members, who are the victims. Im a PHP programmer with an Experience of 3+ years. I have the mail abt the installments, Im thinking of approaching Labour Commissioner office and lodging a complaint on the company. Will this help. Kindly tell me the formalities for filling a case. Thank You

Contacting the Labour Commissioner should help. But going as a group would be better than individually--would be more effective.
Pl mail your resume to me on:
Though no promises, let me see if anything can be done to help you to move on, while you handle your issue. We are looking for PHP5.0 with Drupal 6/7 people for a client in Hyd.
All the Best.

Today we went as a group of 5 members and met an officer at Labour Commissioner Office, He told us to write a complaint letter and attach the documents ( pay slips, bank statements, offer letters) and all our signatures in the letter. Does anyone know how much time will it take in to action after lodging the complaint.

Dear ,
Where is the Labour Office whether in RTC X road / patancheru? The process is conciliation proceedings which starts from sending showcause letter to your present employer and get explaination or for Joint settlement. Generally it takes upto 45 days. Even after the stipulated period not resolve the grievance then he refer the case to Labour court. The adjudication is final that both parties bind.

As per ID act 2010 amendment it the consillation proceedings not comes to conclusion after approaching the ACL then we can go to Labour court or ACL himself refer this case to Labour court.Generally it takes time when the Management not come to settle the matter otherwise it may solve as soon as possible. Do have patience until it be solved.clear?

I would suggest you to explore the possibilities of filing an application against your employer under the Payment of Wages Act, this may be more effective and time saving. The application is to be filed before the Authority Under the PWA. The RLC Office may be able to guide you to the said authority as also the suitability of action.

When i approached Labour Commissioner Office they said to file a complaint and we'll take care of the rest, he checked whether the company is registered or not and he took the registration number.Monday we r going to submit the complaint letter, anyways i will look into your suggestion, thank you

Dear Mr. Henry,
Mr.S.K.Johri, has given the best suggestion to get your payment. first file an application as per section 15(2) of Payment of wages act which should solve your problem as well as get a compenstion for the undue delay as the case may be.
It is always good to take the help of a legal practitioner since your employer will also engage some one on their behalf.

I used to work in a clinical research organisation as a trainee clinical research associate in mumbai. The company was not paying the salaries on time and when I joined the company it was assured to the trainees that your salary will be 2 weeks delayed.By assuring this thing by the HR still the salary was delayed to one month and then after that 1 salary we didnot get any salary. And still the same procedure is going on. Looking at this many left the job and same with me i gave resignation 2 weeks ago. After receiving my resignation due to shortage of employees and overload of work the chairperson himself committed in front of all other employees that if I extend my notice period for few more days and wait till their study gets completed then he will release my one salary along with the current working employees.Few days before as we have no HR i went to the assistant manager and now he is saying,

'I have talked to the Chairperson and he says he never made such commitment and you will your pending dues will be cleared along with the people who are still to get their salary from last 2-3 years.

Can anyone help me or suggest me and my colleagues what can we do to get our salary dues....

Dear Rajgar,
From your communication it is not clear whether you have tendered the resignation and whether the same has been accepted, if yes, please consult a lawyer and file an application under sec.15(2) of the Payment of Wages Act.
In case you have resigned and you have not been relieved please write to the authority concerned conveying that since you have submitted your resignation as per rules of the company, it is not possible for you to linger on for an indefinite period either without wages or on staggered wages. Hence will not be able to attend your duties with effect from the relevant date considering the resignation as effective. But beforehand please ensure the handing over of all company items under your charge to the officer concerned, obtaining proper receipt for the same.

As the commissioner asked to submit the documents, better if you do so. You can also ask him as how much time it will take to solve the issue hopefully you will get the satisfactory answer but make sure to continue follow up with the concern person handling your issue along with searching some good job for you.
All the best.
