I have resigned from my company last Month with 1 month notice period (which is over by may 31st), I had 35 Earned leaves before I resigned. My company is an Indian company and now they are not converting my leaves to cash. They are telling me that leaves will converted to cash only those who have completed a service of 5 years and they are showing me their leave policy now. I joined that company in 3 years ago and at the time of joining I signed a paper which says that I can leave them at any point of time so there is no obligation. If that is the contract then where is the question of 5 years Service completion? To be honest, I don't know much about labor laws but I feel that they are trying to take advantage of the situation. but I am desperately looking for some advice now. To me it is not a matter of money, instead it is a matter of honesty and fair professional behavior and self pride.
Please advice, I would really appreciate that. If they are on wrong side then I would definitely teach them a lesson so that in future no one else faces situation like this.
