On the day of relieving 30 Apr 22 any relieving order or clearance form issued to him?
It is always advisable to collect some proof of relieving on the last working day
Definitely such termination can be challenged through civil courts. You can challenge the back dated termination through email.

rkn61In your post you had mentioned "After this he received a mail on back dated 22 Mar 22 that your employment is being terminated".
If your son received the communication through mail, definitely it should be considered with
a prospective date, that is the "sent date", as no one can send an e-mail with back date.
Even if, they scan their back dated communication as an attachment, you can challenge that
it is a clear-cut proof of victimisation.
As our learned member asked, have you received any relieving letter of resignation acceptance letter advising date of relieving. If available, then you have a very strong case.

saswatabanerjeeEven if he was terminated, they will need to pay for the days he has worked.
It is strange that they would issue a termination letter after he completed his notice period. It would make sense if they had done that before he did his notice period.
Since they allowed him to work after the termination, there is no grounds for not paying for his work.
The only reason for withholding salary would be if he was involved in any type of fraud causing damage to the company. Even then, they would need to justify the matter and can't take an arbitrary decision.
You can go to court, but remember that it is a long drawn process. You better speak to a good lawyer.
