Dear All,
One of our employee was terminated 10 years ago and all the benefits had already given to him .But after the 10 years he raised industry disputes under section 2(A) to conciliation officer . Now my question is that can employee raised dispute against company after 10 years . I am seeking you assistance in this matter .

From India
Employee can raise any dispute at any moment but whether to entertain it or not is government Authority Call. Once it is entertained by Government Authorities then employer needs to object before government authorities with relevant documents / evidences.

After the amendment to sec.2A of the ID Act,1947 effective from 15-09-2010, no dispute under this section can be raised by the workman about his non employment by way of discharge, dismissal, retrenchment or termination by the employer after the expiry of 3 years from the date of such termination.
As the effect of this amendment is mandatory and not directory, such time-barred claim should be dismissed In Limine by the authority concerned without waiting for the objection,if any to be filed by the employer.
