Respected Seniors
Pl help clarifying below mentioned issue:
My orgn is PSU concern. An employee during his service tenure was having two wives. 1st wife is having two children. No divorce decree was obtained from the competent court regarding breaking of 1st marriage. It was done with mutual consent. Employee again entered into 2nd marriage and nominate her for all service benefits. due to wedlock of 2nd marriage one son born. Now the employee concerned died while in service. Now both the wives and their children claimed for all service terminal benefits including compassionate appointment. The respondent company is declining to give the benefits to 1st wife as nomination has been made in favour of 2nd wife by the employee concerned during his service tenure. Kindly clarify the legal status of the following issues:
a) Whether 2nd marriage is null & void in the eyes of law ? If yes then the children born due to wedlock of 2nd marraige is valid or legitimate children?
b) can the son of 2nd marriage claim for compassionate employment?
c) what will be legal status of women who married deceased (2nd wife)
d) how the management will pay the terminal benefits to both of them as the matter is under dispute.
e) what legal remedies can resolve the issue.
Thanks

Hi,
It is not clear in your post whether the deceased employee had registered his second Marriage.
To the best of my knowledge, when divorce decree is not obtained for the first Marriage, second Marriage is illegal as per Indian Laws. Even though nomination have been made in favour of 2nd wife, 1st wife and 2 children are supposed to be the legal heir of the deceased employee. Employer is supposed to release all the benefits to the first wife and family only. Even if the employer want to release some benefits to second wife and Kid, they need to get NOC from 1st wife.
In the absence of proper registered documents both 1st and 2nd wife may be advised to sit for a discussion and to arrive at some compromise regarding sharing of benefits the issue can be resolved. It is not advisable on Employer part to release the benefits without mutual understanding between both the wives. Also all payment to be made to first wife which in turn can be shared with second wife, if the first wife desire so.

Dear friend,
In continuation of the response of our learned friend Mr.V.M.L, I would like to state the following:
Since you yourself have clearly stated that the second marriage of the deceased employee is void, I don't want to raise any questions about the Personal Law applicable in this case.
As regards the process of settlement of terminal benefits of an employee dying in harness, particularly when there are disputed claims, the employer should not decide the claims solely based on nominations. It is better to direct the claimants to obtain succession certificate from the Court.
Coming to your queries:
a) Yes the second marriage would be void if the deceased was not a Muslim. But the children born out of that marriage would certainly be legitimate.
b) Yes, the son or daughter born through the second wife can stake their claims for compassionate ground appointment subject to their fulfillment of the norms of eligibility prescribed under the scheme.
c) She could, at the most, be a dependent of the deceased.
d) To avoid interest liability later, the employer can deposit the Statutory benefits like gratuity with the concerned Authorities appointed under the respective Acts and ask the claimants to approach them.
