Dear Sir / Madam,
My wife works as a faculty member in a private college at Faridabad. She is a expecting mother now and had applied for Maternity Leave from May 1st 2014 which was denied and was asked to resign instead. My concern here is that will my wife be eligible for Gratuity as she has served the institution for 9 years as under:
Joined on 08 / 08 / 2005 - Adhoc employee
Confirmed on 01 / 07 / 2006 - Confirmed employee
Continued till 21 / 03 / 2011 - Went on approved study leave for One year (paid PF, GSLI & GSCA for the period on study leave)
Joined Back 08 / 02 / 2012 - came back and resumed services
Resigned on 01 / 05 / 2014 - asked to resign for applying maternity leave
Please help me and tell me whether my wife will get Gratuity or not.
Thanks in advance.
