As you have stated your service with the Organization for about 10 years in a senior management position and your exit was due to attaining the age of superannuation. Normally, therefore, your terminal benefits would be statutory gratuity and the unavailed earned leave,if any at your credit. There may be some other benefits if so mentioned in your contract of employment about which we are unaware. You can take legal action for the unpaid gratuity by filing a claim u/s 7 of the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972 before the controlling Authority for the area where you worked last. Regarding other unpaid terminal benefits under the contract of employment you can institute civil action only.
