i worked for a group having several companies registered in eastern region of india and having plant in other locations. I work at corporate office of the group in delhi where several senior staff members were sitting and getting their salary from different companies under the group. corporate office use different policies in relation to salary increments and bonus than what was used at different plants of such companies and branch offices. for last 8 years i was one of them who were under corporate office policies. The company ( Z ltd) which was paying me salary also follow different policy for all employees except me as i was one of the few employees who join the rolls of that Z Ltd but sitting at group corporate office, salary and bonous policy of Z ltd were good than what was followed at corporate leval and i have no problem with that as the payment of gratuity to employees was good at corporate level as corporate office was paying u gratuity at your gross salary not on basic salary.
All things goes well till i work, but today when resign i was told that my gratuity will be calculated on basis of policy of Z ltd and not on basis of corporate office policy which was follow for each other employee when left job from corporate office till last 60 days.
here as we all know that in such situation management show its real colours and my immediate seniors at corporate level did not support me and not put forward my case ahead.
my query is that Z ltd which has declared ex-gratia bonus every year since i join the rolls of the Company and sitting at corporate office, during first year in 2009 i was also given bonus as i was new to this system but staff at corporate office told Z ltd that i shall be followed by corporate office polices.
z ltd has paid bonus to all employees yesterday and given 2016 ex gratia bonus as my name was not part of that list and same evening they denied me the benefits which were available to corporate office staff. Can today a claim ex gratia bonus of last 7 years which was never paid to me and if company denied this what are the legal remedies available to me. 29th October 2016 From India, Noida
