In my previous company my salary structure was 90% fixed and 10% variable. The variable about was mentioned in offer letter and was part of CTC. However it was to be paid at end of year. ( based on individual performace, team's performance and company's performance etc ).
Another eligibility criteria for variable pay was to complete one year in the compnay.
I left that company after 11 months 18 days. And since I did not complete the full two months notice period as required by company, I paid the company for the balance 14 days notice period ( which was partly settled through balance leaves and partly through cash payment - I have receipt for it)
Though I didn't complete full year, but technically by buying out the balance notice period , and paying the company in cash for 14 days, I effectly completed more than a year.
My questions are :
(a) Will I be eligible for my variable pay in this case ? Can I follow it leagally against the company ?
(b) The company has deducted Rs 20,000/- from my end-of-settlement dues , which they paid me as relocation expenses at the time of joining. Because I didn't completed one year. Is the company right in doing so ?
In case its stand a legal case against company, I will appreciate contact details of a labour law advocate , who can take my case.
Thanks a lot in advance.
