This is Antony Soosai J and this is regarding my Gratuity cheque. I was working in Pvt Ltd, Chennai from July 2012 to April 2017. Currently I am in my native. When I asked for my experience certificate to the employer in September 2017, I was informed that my Gratuity cheque is also ready for which I should come in person, sign and get the same.
Since I am in my native, I am unable to get the cheque in person. Hence I asked my employer that I would authorize a person to get the cheque. But they did not accept my concern and they still wanted me to come in person to get it. Even after several follow ups, they are keeping it in hold. Moreover they credited my April month salary in the mid of August only.
Kindly let me know how to proceed further.pls help.
Thanks for your reply.
Do you mean of Legal notice? If so, how to draft that. And let me know if I can send that or should I contact a lawyer for that. Also is that can be sent through mail.
Kindly assist with further details.
Issue single sentence notice on your own addressed to your company on envelope, and in the lettter you have to address to Designated Gratuity Officer.
