termination of manager - compensation and rights


I was working for a company for more than 1 and half year in Karnataka. Recently, I received Termination letter from the company surprisingly without mentioning any specific reason for termination. 

What I can think of the reason would be that on 18/04/2019 which was the voting day, the company did not declare holiday as per Section 135B(1) in The Representation of the People Act, 1951, so I opposed the same and went for Voting. 

Another reason I can think of is they hired a person with lower package so they terminated my job.

Upon getting email of the Termination letter from the company, I tried to speak to the Director/Owner of the company who avoided talking to me. So far these people have not clarified any reason for terminating my employment.

At the time of joining, in the email they confirmed that the contract will be for 2 years and with 2 months notice and they will provide me the joining letter with the same terms, but on the very first day of joining, they provided the joining letter with 3 months contract and 3 months notice.

This company does not follow the rules applicable as per The Karnataka Shops and Establishment Act at all.

I would really appreciate if someone can suggest me the action I can take against the company and the compensation I can get from the company.


Deputy Manager

So your latest contract (joining letter) prescribed 3 months contract and three months notice, though it is one sided. But even if so, you were terminated after serving for 18 months, then 3 months notice or 3 months pay in lieu of notice ought to have been paid to you. Please don't speculate the reason of termination, which only management knows.
