Dear Sir,

under gratuity as you said there is no jurisdictional factor. Whether employee can file the application to the controller any where in India?

kindly advise me

Sarjooram Sharma (Assistant Labour commissioner)     23 April 2010

No, there is not juridicational issue cited in the captioned case law.territorial jurisdiction is applicable while filing any case.

Isaac Gabriel (Advocate)     24 April 2010

The case deals with the issues inquestion and not the jurisdiction.This case law is an answer to problems arise for sanction of facilities to the work force pointing out someother privileges inlieu of.

Dear Sirs,

The employee committed the offence of moral tupitude during his tenure. but it has come to the surface after 2 two months from the date his resignation. can we withheld the gratuity amount based on sadi reason? or what option is available for me to take proper action against employee? 

Vijayarajan (Executive Director)     30 April 2010

For moral turptitude you can issue memo of charges and if it is proved in an enquiry, you can again issue a notice/and extend a hearing for natural justice, for withholding payment of gratuity and then only you can withhold the gratuiy.
