Hi
to become eligible for gratuity my HR is saying : date of release from company should be more than 5 years from date of joining.
My DOJ: 06/07/2012 and DOR(date of release from company): 09/06/2017. That is 4 years 11 months.
Am i eligible for Gratuity. If yes what document can i show to support and what legal action I can take.
Thanks
Chandra

Please contact Gratuity Authority of the area discuss with him and submit your gratuity form to him, he will be able to help you. Labour Officer/ Commissioner is the Gratuity authorioty.
Dear Member,
Gratuity shall be payable to an employee after he/she has rendered continuous service of not less than five years on retirement,resignation,termination and superannuation. Continuous service of 5 years is must. If you are from Tamilnadu, you are entitled for gratuity since there is a citation of Madras High Court which entitles payment of gratuity on completion of 4 years 240 days. But this citation will not have legal effect in other states as per law of precedent.
