Gratuity denied

This is for my parents who were denied gratuity. They worked in a school as school principal (father) and senior teacher (mother) from 1993-2005. When they resigned, they asked for gratuity but were refused. I have a few questions in this regard:
1. Can they still seek this private school to give them their gratuity amount with interest?
2. If yes, what would be the process?
3. My father passed away in 2016, how should we proceed in his case?
Please guide me in this process.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you.

I am currently working in an public organisation for 2.8 years or more. In response to the minimum wages act or something similar(that's what we have been told), they have applied changes to the salaries of all fresh employees which hasn't been done in my almost 3 years of working. They have an increased basic and also a hike that makes it double my payment. We did receive an hike of a measly amount that doesn't amount to. I feel mistreated. Is this allowed and anything I can do?

Notice period buy out


This is regarding labour policy and buying out notice period, my wife is working with a finance company. The work environment is very poorly managed and there is lot of stress, the stress is that there is no limitation on working hours, the staff are expected to go home and process files till mid night, expected to work on Saturday's, public holidays and Sundays. The manager is openly saying that he doesn't want female employees and giving mental torture by humiliating people.

My question is how does it work when employees work for more than 9 per day

and other question I have is, the company offer letter is clearly says that employee can buy out notice period without any clause. But the management and HR are not letting my wife go and are expecting to complete 2 months notice period where as she has an offer with other company and willing to serve only one month and ok to buy the remaining period.

Need your valuable suggestion on how to tackle this, the managers are verbally humiliating and playing around with her.

Our full and final settlement has not yet been made by the company. It's the habitual practice of that company. whoever demands strongly for the full and final settlement, they will threaten by sending legal notices. Further, the company will not support and fails the employee verification process for such employee.

Last time few employees have been tried to file a police complaint for the delay in salary for the period of almost 3 months. Then they've been terminated immediately and notices were sent to them as the company name and fame have been spoiled and demanded to pay 25 Lakhs to the company as compensation.

It's been more than a year. All employees are feared of getting involved in unnecessary disputes with the company. We all held non-managerial positions.

1. Please let us know whether it is possible to file Winding-Up petition for recovery of salaries under the Companies Act 2013?

I am attaching the final page of the order issued by hon high court of karnataka . can the members advise me the meaning of the judgement.

12. Therefore keeping these aspects in view, the endorsement at Annexure-A is quashed. A direction
is issued to the respondents to consider the promotion granted to the petitioner to SMG-IV with
effect from 19.02.2004 and grant all other consequential benefits to the petitioner by reckoning the
said date.

the mistake of omitting my name at the appropriate time of interview was done by the bank.( internal correspondence obtained through RTI) because of their mistake of not giving me retrospective promotion in 2005 ( wef 19.2.2004) i missed the oppurtunity of participating in the promotion exercise of 2006, 2008, 2009.
