I was employed as DGM IT, under agreement for service on yearly basis for past 6 years. There were totally 6 agreement signed every year between me and the same company without any loss of a single day. I had worked with them for 6 continuous years. I was getting the remuneration/ honorarium on incremental basis as agreed in the agreement on monthly basis. Was allotted the employee number , was following all the attendance rules and regulations and was eligible for leave. The full and final statement displays DOJ as 12/07/2010 and date of leaving as 11/07/2016 and salary as contract amount.
My query is whether should be treated as employee of the company and the remunaration/honorarium I was getting as wages and hence I am eligible for Gratuity under the Gratuity Act 1972. Please respond!
