Kumarjoginder01Respected All, I Joginder Kumar joined a Pvt. Ltd. company on 12/10/2017 in city Rohtak, state Haryana. I worked here till 30/11/18. The company provided me bonus aprox. Rs. 7000/- from the period 12/10/2017 to 31/03/2018. Later I resigned from the company on 30/11/2018. Recently I asked from the management for the remaining bonus for the period from 01/04/2018 to 30/11/2018. But they refused to do so. They said that company does not provide bonus to the employees who have left the organisation at the time of payment of bonus. I am in dilemma. Please guide me whether I am entitled for the bonus or not. If yes then what steps should be taken.

If an employee has worked for not less than 30 working days in an Accounting Year, he is entitled to statutory bonus u/s 8 of the Payment of Bonus Act,1965, whether he remains in the service of the concerned establishment or not at the time of bonus payment for the accounting year. Therefore the contention of your ex employer is totally incorrect.
You can make a complaint u/s 21 of the Act to the Asst.Commissioner of Labor for the area for recovery.
