I need your sincere advice to stop unethical practice in my company & also inform concerned govt. department for necessary action.
I'm working as Manager in MNC Surgical Company in Kolkata. Our Main Ware House is in Gurgaon & we sale the products through our authorized Distributor in Kolkata. Downline 14 people reports to me & have Logistic manager (under direct payroll) based at Kolkata Office.
Now our Kolkata Office is not registered under Shop & Establishment act of W.Bengal.
Our Office is in Residential Complex & didn't pay Kolkata Municiple Tax for maintaining office.
Our Branch Executive & Office Boy is under Third Party payroll.
Now several times Commercial Tax inspector use to raid our office & settle with Freebies in terms of Cash & Gifts.
To bring Demo Machine in W.Bengal they transfer Tax amount to my Salary Account & direct me to pay Sales Tax in my Name. They declared me as Unregistered Traders to get the advantage of generating Waybill to bring Demo Machine. I've suggest them for legal way i.e. by depositing Tax Amount as Bank Guarantee to SALES TAX Commission but they avoid this legal route & continue the illegal process.
In IMPORT Export Licence they declare that they've office/branches in Kolkata with same local address but in actual they're not maintaining the official protocol of registering it.
So please help me to resolve this matter & protect my employment.

First of all you must get registered your establishment under Shops and Establishment Act of West Bengal, for which you can approach a compliance agency, who can help you in this matter.
If you register your establishment under S&E Act, obviously you will start following all the acts one by one and you can run peacefully.
