Hi, I am on notice period in my current job. It will be completed on 20th July 2019. I am going to ask for my bonus for financial year 18-19. Is there any rules or law for bonus, so i can ask on behalf of that to my HR.

Time-limit for payment of bonus has been fixed u/s 19 of the Payment of Bonus Act,1965.
In case of any disputed claim for bonus under the Act, the bonus should be paid within a month from the enforceable date of the award or the date of operation of the settlement relating to the dispute.
In any other case, it should be paid within a period of 8 months from the close of the accounting year.
Coming to the query, the accounts of the establishment for the accounting year 2018 - 19 would have been closed on 31-03-2019 and as such , the employer can have time for payment till 30-11-2019. However, since the poster's formal exit is likely to be effective from 20-07-2019, he can ask for bonus to be included in his F&F settlement. The employer is bound to pay if the quantum of bonus is decided and declared for the accounting year and if not the poster has to wait till 30-11-2019.

At that time, HR and payroll officer of my company told me that if I want to get my bonus, my f&f get delayed as they will release my F&F with bonus amount at the time when they will release bonus for the company. I was agree for thale delay, but now without any information they had released my F&F without bonus. When I tried to contact via phone, they are not going to give me satisfied answer. Now I am going to write an e mail regarding this. Now my question is this, is there any place or forum or institution where I can raise my complain ? And what is the procedure to get my bonus amount as O worked for my company and I think it is my right to get my bonus amount. Please suggest and brief me the process.
