My company Mars-India has denied me to pay the gratuity. The reasons given by them are the client company has not paid them in full for the services they have provided. I worked for Mars-India and i was in the pay roll of Mars-India. After 8 years of work i resigned and they provided me with relieving letter and when asked for gratuity they said the will intimate me when they decide to give it. After a year of time when i contacted them they said do what you want to do we will not provide you. Go to court or do whatever you wanted to do.
I currently work in USA and have come for a 20 days trip to india. Whom should i report/contact and how can i get my Gratuity?

IF they are so adamant about giving you Gratuity amount then you better hire a good lawyer.

Hi Anonymous,
As per Gratuity Act if employee has rendered continues service for not less than 5 year then at time of employment termination employer is liable to pay gratuity. If employer is not giving gratuity then it is punishable under section 9 of Gratuity Act.
You should contact HR or top of management of company. If still your concern is not resolved then you can give application to controlling authority under section 8 of gratuity act. It will take bit time but your concern will be resolved.

Dear Friend,
You are eligible for gratuity as you worked more than five years on continuous basis You may file an Application for direction in Form "N" (under Rule 10 (1) before the Controlling Authority under the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972 at the appropriate RLC's Office under your jurisdiction.If you need any help and advise you may communicate the same to me.

My friend as per Gratuity Act,1972 and its rules your are entitled to get Gratuity. First approach your employer requesting him to pay the Gratuity providing the details of joining and leaving. After 15 days send a reminder highlighting the first letter stating that you will be approaching the Controlling Authority under the Payment of Gratuity act.Nominate some one whom u trust to appear and argue for this.

Dear friend.
When the company you worked itself is ready to face the court then there is no possibility of getting the Gratuity amount from them without resorting to legal action. Therefore donot wait and as per our friends advice please take this matter to labour commisioner to get justice.
Good luck.

Dear Anonymous,

My colleague Sh.Sibabrata Majumdar has given you the correct advise.You are eligible for the payment of gratuity as you have put in more than 5 years with the company.You have to assess as to who is the appropriate govt having jurisdiction to deal with the cases of your company whether Central or State Govt. Accordingly you have to approach to the Controlling authority of the area with an application containing full particulars of your service details in Form 'N'. The employer is supposed to pay the amount of gratuity within 30 days from the date, it becomes due. If it is proved that the employer has deliberately delay the payment of gratuity, the Controlling authority is competent to grant you the interest at the simple rate notified by the Govt. from time to time. The reasons advanced by your company that the client company has not paid them in full for the services they have provided shall not stand valid before the Controlling authority.Since you are present based in USA. I suggest you to authorize some person to appear before the Controlling authority on your behalf after you have filed an application in Form"N" before the Controlling authority.

Hi this is viswanath, Mars-India is a software company with branches in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Mumbai.

According to the Payment of gratuity act 1972

9. Application to Controlling Authority for direction:-If an employer-

(i) refuses to accept a nomination or to entertain an application for

payment of gratuity, or

(iii) having received an application for payment of gratuity, fails to

issue notice within fifteen days; the claimant employee, nominee,

or legal heir, as the case may be, may within ninety days of the

occurrence of the cause for the application, apply to the

controlling authority for issuing a direction under sub-section (4)

of section 7 with as many extra copies as are the opposite party:

Provided that Controlling Authority may accept any application on sufficient

cause being shown by the applicant after the expiry of the period of ninety days.

[Rule 10.]

"11. Machinery for enforcement of the Act or Rules in Central spheres:-

All Assistant Labour Commissioners (Central) have been appointed as Controlling

Authorities and all the Regional Labour Commissioners (Central) as Appellate

Authorities."

In my case i think i should approach Controlling authority (Central) that is Assistant Commissioner of Labor (Central) and not(State).

What do you guys say?

Thanks

I sent a mail to the directory of the company, HR and finance officer. Below is the response to my email from the directory of the company.

I sent the following mail in Dec of 2011 and as i was in USA i could not reach the Controlling authority within 90 days. Can i now approach the Controlling authority with the following mail or should i send another email to the Company before approaching the Controlling authority.

From: <Ramesh.Sundaresan>

Please go ahead and take legal action.....we are game for that.

Is there any other office in Hyderabad that i should approach?
