I was working for a logistics firm , where one of my client had outstanding amount , which I was following up for recovery, When I resigned and release by organisation, there was outstanding due from the client and I kept following up with client, however, employee held back my full and final settlement and didn't issue relieving letter.
I assured employer that I will follow up for recovery of money and kept pushing client apparently client paid some amount but later even after pushing a lot client kept on giving dates and told that he is in dialogue with employer and will settle dues as agreed with employer.
On other hand Employer held wrote to me that they will release my f & f and letter only after full recovery of outstanding from client. Employer is not going legal against client nor pushing for payment.
I need your assistance on how should I go about this ? does employer has authority to held back f & f , it is almost three months now and both client and employer is not taking any initiative to settle the matter. 28th March 2019 From India, Mumbai
