My mother is a teacher in a renowned private school in Mumbai. She is retiring this year after 17years of service. According to the school authorities, they will decide the amount she should get as gratuity. Is this true? Is there a new law regarding this? Isn't it calculated in a certain way anymore? Please help. We are worried

A. dear client in your case The amount of gratuity is to be decided as per the provisions of the Indian Gratuity Act, 1972.

Hi Sir/Madam, My wife has recently joined a school as a teacher but after working for 2 days she didn't like the job profile and work environment and decided to quit the job with immediate effect without serving the notice. Now the owner of the school is threatening to take legal action against her for not serving the notice.My wife has not signed any bond but yes she has got the Service agreement for the job which she has signed which states that the training expenses will be incurred if any person leaves the job without notice however she has not got any training from the school.Please advise whether the school authority can take any legal action or not?Thanks in advance.

A. dear client The employers must have to give a solid reason before firing anyone and just because you had gone for an interview they have fired you is not acceptable in LAW. Please consult with the documents for a resolution

Dear Mrs Yusuf, Hello. Firstly, I am seeking help for a former colleague and dear friend who is located in Mumbai. We had both worked together during my employment at a company, a previously German owned, now China owned MNC with worldwide offices and production plants. Sushil is currently serving his termination with the company which he had faithfully served for the past 19 years after I took the initiative to recommend his employment from a vendor status to employee in 2008. We have had many successful years working together and I commend Sushil for his sheer dedication, committed and unrelenting efforts to serve the company. We both stuck with the company when it filed for insolvency in 2009 which also resulted in many employees being laid off, though primarily in Europe. Over the years, more of my team members were laid off without my knowledge and it is saddening to learn that Sushil is the latest victim of corporate politics without regard for the years of service or consideration of the family he must feed. The reason I am writing is that the management the company, specifically the HR Manager informed Sushil that his services are not longer required and that he has until October 2017 to resign but without any compensation. The deadline was however extended to March 2018 firm but he has still yet to find a job. Sushil then learnt that the management had hired a new employee to replace him which was shocking because the reason for termination of services provided by the HR Manager to Sushil was due to audit findings and they revealed little without elaborating further when he probed. I have known Sushil for almost 20 years and I can vouch for his commitment and dedication as a worker and his integrity as a person. Sushil confided in me and asked for help in employment but since I am located in Singapore, I do not understand the system well enough in India to offer much advice. I did however gain his approval to seek out pro bono legal aid as he is at a loss and showing signs of depression. Please help Sushil in seeking justice. You may contact him direct for further information if you feel his case warrants a righteous act of intervention and justice. His mobile number is +91 98192 33553 Sincerely

It's a small company with 5 to 6 employees. I have completed 4 months training but they haven't taught all the syllabus at that 4 months period as they promised. After that I joined there itself and worked for next 4 months. Every week we have 6 working days. Sometimes they  used to give work even on sundays. This made me mental stress and over a period of time I started crying daily for no reason. My salary is only 7k. But every month I used to get only 6k. Even if I take one day leave or if I come 1hour late to office they won't give me Salary for that day.1hour late means for example Monday if I go 15 mins late and it continues for 4 days means they won't give me one day salary. They won't give government holidays or other local holidays. Only 2 leaves. 7 days (including Saturday and Sunday) for diwali and 7 days for Pongal. Orally they will say that my designation is FRONT END DEVELOPER. But there is no proof for that. They haven't even issued me an ID card in the past 4 months. For training they asked me to bring laptop. Even after training they didn't gave me office PC or my own server space. They don't have  stable rules written on anything. They used to change their rules according to their wish. Due to my mother's operation I need to resign my job immediately. So one morning I asked for my relieving orally.I'm not comfortable in sharing my family problems so I said that I got job in some other company with 22k salary for some other designation but it's not true. After few hours orally they said ok you may go. But they said that they won't give me Salary for that month. I have worked for 22 days in that month. Then they asked me to collect my experience letter after 15 days then 10 days then 2 days. After these two days they started complaining against me. Complaint 1 :          They said that you have studied something using my WiFi and you got job in some other company. This is legally wrong and I can make complaint against you. Like that they are saying.                 I don't know if this is legally wrong. I have studied something using office WiFi when I don't have any work at office hours. Complaint 2:                  One boy gave a Google review against the company. So they are saying that he is my friend and I only asked him to post reviews against the company. But I don't even know who he is. Complaint 3:                When they said that they won't give salary for that month I started shouting at my MD and also for several other reasons like WiFi , reviews. Not sure if this leads to mis-conduct. I don't like to shake my head for whatever they say. If I'm wrong I will say sorry. If I'm not I will open up my mouth to prove myself.

An ex-employee working in a new company whose job is to promote the company which is an online portal for freelancing has asked the former company employees to enroll in the website to freelance. So what kind of offense is this? How can the ex-employee defend himself and what kind of case can the former company file against the ex employee or the new company he is working in?
Share this questionShare Icon

A. dear client in your case if the ex-employee is doing the said work after the expiry of the cooling period then he is immuned otherwise they may file a case for loss of profit and breach of terms of agreement which is not directly but indirectly applicable to the ex employee as he has also signed that agreement. For the current persons who are working there,if the promotion has made them earn some profit, then they can be terminated or issued warning notices depending on the gravity of the mistake which is at the sole consideration of the management to decide.
