4 months salary plus the pf amount pending

Dear Experts,

I worked in an Organisation for about 10 months. The company was a start up but had some government project and is registered and still running. I joined the company in thrive to grow well in the industry by learning end to end process of my industry (as start ups gives you more exposure). Initially things were going great, I received my laptop got my salary on time. but after 2 months things flipped. The office was closed and we were asked to work from home that too 8am to 6pm, 6days. I never complained for extended hours of working as I was prepared for it. But when I did not received my salary for that month. I was pissed off. And continually it happened for about 2-3 months. And sometime little amount was paid but again some months salary went on pending. I strectched myself work hard but when I did not recevied amount for about 4 months, Then I switched my job as I had some liability. The company owner said that I can move on and he will clear my dues later on. But its been about 8-9 months, I havent received a single rupee. Kindly help me to get my pending amount from the organisation. Is there any legal procedure which can allow me to get my money. Please advice.

Send a mail or reminder mail or communicate with the concerned person. If there is no improvements means u can have two options:

1. If u have union at your work place means go head with them to labour court or

2. Contact advocate and send a notice for the recovery of your salary and other dues
