You must have received the offer letter, appointment letter, salary structure, other payouts e. g reimbursments etc, and salary slip of the months fro which you have received the salary.

During probation period a notice of termnation of more than 15 days may seem not to be fair.

you have been wrongly fired, you have every right to severance pay, damages, or unemployment compensation. In certain circumstances, you may also have a valid claim for wrongful termination against your former employer. Speaking with an experience attorney can help you understand your rights and make an informed decision about how to proceed.

Hi expert lawyers, I was employed by an IT firm but within 2 months of employment (ie probation period) ,due to business exigencies, I was terminated. My appointment letter clearly states in case of termination (even during probation period) , I am elgible for 1 month salary compensation. But my ex-employer diagrees for the one month compensation and has also not paid my salary for the last 1 month when I offered my services. It has been three months since my termination.
Kindly let me know the options that I have. Please note I was employed in a senior managerial role. Can I initiate criminal proceedings for breach of trust. Can I approach the Labour Officer ? Thanks for your guidance.
Susanta Chakraborty ( ) 15 March 2011

I worked with real estate company from 2006-2009. During the recession time (2007-8) real estate effected badly so this company was not paying salary to their employees but assuring to give the same later on. We all were convinced and waited for salary to release and not resigned. In 2010, my salary for almost more than 1 yrs were pending. So I requested to the management they partially released my salary then I quit this co. but management assured me to give my balance (almost 6mnths) salary. Now it's almost more than 2 yrs, in spite of vigorous follow up nobody is responding towards the same (neither phonecalls nor emails).When I call Director of the company he always assure me to release in next 2-3 mnths but never released.
Now I would like your all advises on the same. Do I need to go for labour/consumer court? If yes, what is the procedure. Since it's been more than 2yrs still I can file the case? or any other option?
Kumar Doab (FIN) 23 February 2012
Yours is not a consumer case. It is good that you have been following up by emails. You should not have waited for such a long period. You may submit a written representation by letter thru redg/speed post, addressed to your appointing authority, MD, Head-HR, Company Secretary, followed by email and narrate all representations ( mentioning phone calls giving your phone number, company official's name and phone number date) and promises made to you during each representation. You may demand refund of all expenses including on phone calls, emails etc and interest on delayed payment of wages and demand all amounts to be paid to you say within 7 days, by Bank DD thru redg/speed post only.
If the good offices do not supply the payment you may approach o/o Labor Commissioner/Wages Inspector. It shall be appropriate to approach a competent and experienced service lawyer with all record e.g. appointment letter, emails, letters etc, give inputs in person and proceed under expert advice.
