My office time is 9 to 6 and i met with a car accident near 8:20. I want to know that is it my company's responsibility to provide me the financial support for medical expenses or i have to bear myself all the expenses.

Company's responsibilities lies when you are on work and in premises.
Anything beyond that is your responsibility.
Anyways you met an accident due to your fault , why should company be penalized.

Were you heading towards office for work? What about insurance cover from company or ESIC cover??

In non-work hour time its not the company’s reponsibility. If company looks after your Insurance(Group or Individual); or ESI please check into that..

Hi! Iam a teacher. I have worked in an institution for 13 years. I was promised by the management that they would give me gratituity when I left the school in 2009. Its almost 8 years &
I haven't received my gratituity till now . I have send them many letters of reminders for the same . Please guide me . What should I do in this case?

It may be late,but visit the school personally and then follow with visit to Local labour officer.
You are entitled for gratuity and should claim it.
Delay is supported by your letters asking for realise of payment.

1. Mr. Ved_Tomar ji, as per your thread, accident occurred at about 8.20 AM, whereas your duty time starts at 9.00AM. Can you indicate as to at the time of accident whether you were going to your office / place of work or to some where else ? Whether any police report in respect of said accident was lodged/filed ?
2. Whether in your establishment ESI Act, 1948 is applicable and if so, whether you are an employee within the meaning of said Act and in respect of you whether compliance is being made by your management ?

This is dependent on company policy. I am not sure if you were on duty and if so discuss with your HR dept.

When a person is heading towards his office for duty the theory of notional extension of work place can apply. One needs to consider this angle also before saying company has no liability.

I agree with Mr. Nathrao. Heading toward Office for duty - extension of work place. But I am not remember, there is a clause of time frame to be consider based on as below:-
1. Employee is provided his present house address to the company. If present address not provided to the Employer, may reject the benefit.
2. Based on present address employer should consider the approx time of journey from home to office.
3. Also in Police diary time of accident should mentioned.
Thanks and Regards

I too agree with Dbey. But I want to add one more here..
1) whether the employee leaving from home -going to function the office or company duty during the Journey hrs. i.e., going to vendor or client's place.
if that is the case..
then he'll be entitled for the medical reimbursement or insurance(or ESI) cover.

Medical benefits would depend on the type of plan offered by the employer. Some plans cover all needed treatments even if the employee is hurt sleeping at home. Others only confine to work related injuries or illnesses. All employees should know their benefit plans well.
