after employee's death what help private company should give to his family?

Hello sir
My query is regarding the help which company should give to employee's family after his death? My father expired on 22 Nov 2017, he was working in a pvt firm from last 26-27 yrs. He was an accountant but he used handle all their legal works related to company, related to their property, etc. After his death company denied to give any support to us. On the name of help they just gave my brother's school fees 2 installment.

When my father was alive they promised to give medicine shop to my father in their hospital even after his death they said this to us too but now they are dening on this too.

Please guide me what should I do?

Many people do not know that if an employee of a private company dies, the company is required to provide a death benefit. A death benefit can be anything from paying the family's medical bills to providing financial support for funeral costs and more proessaywriting reviews. The specifics depend on what type of plan was offered by the employer at the time of hire. If you are unsure what your current or former employer offers, you should contact them with any questions prior to reading this blog post!

1.He is entitled to pension if the comp[any was depositing PF dues with EPFO. In case they were not depositing and having 20 employees (including daly wagers/contract / outsourced etc) they are bound of pay the PF dues to EPFO now (both employee & employer share).  You can file a written complaint with Regional PF Commissioner with request to initiate proceedings under section 7A  of EPF(MP) Act 1952.  Labour Commisssioner has no role in this.

2. In case they have not paid graruity then file complaint with labour deptt.

3. The promise of medicine shop. If it is oral it has no velue and not claimable under any Act..  If it is in writing still it is not enforecebale as the promising medical shop to non-parma graduate is per-se illegal.
