What can I do if for any reason I no more want to work in the company and want to leave on immediate bases without giving a notice period and if somehow I managed to leave, I am concerned about my salary, if they refuses to pay me. What action can I take here if they don't pay me
If you are planning to leave without serving notice board, then you might have to pay them compensation as according to your employment agreement.
If they don't pay your salary,
1. Approach the Labour Commissioner
The employee can approach the labour commissioner and convey the issue to the commissioner. It is advised that a copy of the legal notice sent to the employer, employment contract, a bank statement is attached to the complaint filed before the labour commissioner. The labour commissioner’s duty is to reconcile the differences between the employer and employee.
2. Approach the Labour Court
If the labour commissioner fails to provide a solution, then the employee can approach the labour court. This suit can be filed under the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947. However, this suit must be filed within 1 year from the date from which the salary is due. The Labour Court has to decide the case within 3 months.
Within a certain period without any extension, the Labour Court decides a timeline. The time frame is around three months, where the Presiding Officer of the certain Labour Court deems it expedient or necessary to do so. The Presiding Officer may for certain reasons in writing actually extend the time frame as he/she deems fit. The Labour Court will also look into the fact whether legal notice for pending payment of provident fund has been sent to the employer.
3. Approach the Civil Court
Employees holding executive or managerial posts can file a suit for non-payment of salary in a civil court, in accordance with the provisions of Civil Procedure Code, 1908. However, it is advised that this should not be the remedy sought by the employee in the first instance.
