I worked with company for exactly 4 years 11 months as full time employee without any interruption in service. I asked for gratuity claim at the time of resignation but company refused to pay with the explaination that it should be 5 calendar years. Later on advice of lawyer I sent a legal notice as well but company is still sticking to the ground that I am not entitled for gratuity and ready to defend the case in court of law.
could you guide if I should go ahead with legal case? generally I received information that I should be entitled for gratuity but company is not ready to budge
