Gratuity for fixed term employment

Hello All,

I was employed with an organisation on contract basis/ fixed term employment and have worked with them for tenure of 2 years 3 months.

Each year my contract was been renewed. I had gratuity as an component in my CTC so as I have been reading and watch about new gratuity Act the contract employee will be eligible for gratuity n all before 5 years.

My only question is as I was working as Fixed term employment till March 25, 2022. So will I be eligible for gratuity . If yes then how should I Claim it and what to do If employer denied to pay.

53(1) provides that in the case of an employee employed on fixed term employment OR a deceased employee, the employer shall pay gratuity on pro rata basis

Hello  Rama sir,

Thank you for your reply sir.

I did mention same to the employer but they are denying to pay the gratuity with a reason stating there is no such law as there is only one law of employee to complete 5years to be eligible for gratuity.

Request you to please advise what I can do in such case.
