Madhu.T.KAs per Payment of Gratuity Act an employee who has completed 5 years of continuous service is entitled to get gratuity. At the same time, an employee who has put in at least 240 working days in any period of 12 months only is considered as having 'continuous service'. This concept of 240 days has been interpreted as one year service and accordingly an employee who has put in four years and 240 days in the fourth year has been adjudged to have 5 years' service by High Courts of Madras and kerala in separate judgements. You may refer Sreeja Vs Regional Joint Labour Commissioner [2015 LLR 826] and Mettur Bearsell Ltd Vs Regional Labour Commissioner (Central), Madras. Please find the attachments.
