My contract got over in July, I had work permit so I had to worked with my employer till October, then I took medical leaves in November because he did not renew my contract and my work permit also got over. He informed me that contract will not get renewed till December because of some change in immigration laws and did not pay me salary for November. So i resign in December as there is uncertainty. Now in February he is giving me relieving letter dated 31st October so that he does not have to give me salary of November which was my approved paid leave. Also he just gave me one month paid leave salary in 3 years of service. Sir, please guide.

I concur with the observations of Aks17. In overseas employment, you should be thorough with the employment laws of the host country. Particularly, in certain countries Government enforcement agencies wantonly neglect even listening the problems of foreign workers due to certain prejudices of their own. The employers also take advantage of this and continue their harassment unabated. I am not sure how far the Indian Embassies in such countries come to the rescue of such affected Indian workers abroad.
