Dear Rohit,
Designation can not be a conclusive proof of a person's employment status. No employee could be a trainee for almost 15 consecutive months in an organization unless and otherwise he was recruited only as a trainee under a scheme of training with stipend. Therefore, notwithstanding the nomenclature as trainee in the company records, such a person would be an " employee " as defined under the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972. Better engage the services of an advocate and file a claim for gratuity before the Controlling Authority under the Act.
