I was suffering from Jaundice so could not attain office. I was asked to resign, which I did. It was not possible at that time to physically go to their office and resign due to ill health so I sent my resignation by E-mail as well as by courier.. None of these were acknowledged and I was declared absconding and terminated from service.
My Appointment letter as well as Termination letter (issued by their Bangalore, legal cell) clearly states that my full and final settlement will be cleared in due course.
Its been more then two and half years but my dues are not being settled by the Manager HR (TED) Ms Rituparna Ghosh. I have met her at office after lot of difficulties but she says I have to pay one months notice period salary even after being terminated to get my PF and last salary. (I have all correspondence by E-mail saved.)
Such term of service is no where mentioned in my appointment letter or termination letter or as per an labour law of the land.
I was asked to meet her in person on 21 Jan 2011 for a discussion, which I did. But she is is adamant and said my PF withdrawal form will not be forwarded to PF commissioners office unless I pay one months notice period even after being terminated. She said this is according to M/s WIPRO's HR policies.
Such terms of service was not mentioned anywhere in my appointment letter / termination letter. The termination letter was issued by their Bangalore office, having phone number + 91 (80) 41352000 (Legal Cell) I have tried calling this number many times but could never reach the right person concerned.
Can any lawyer or individual help me in getting my legitimate dues? the F&F settlement is about Rs. 8000 INR (PF) and about 3,500 INR (last salary due). Its 3500 as I worked for about 7 days due to ill health in the last month.
Please let me know the legal fees involved. The F&F amount is around 8,000 Rs (PF) and 3,500 Rs. (last salary).
I know other employees who are facing same condition even after working for 4+ yrs. This BPO does not settles F&F dues easily.
Is their any lawyer in Kolkata who can take up the case for a reasonable legal fees ? I am ready to part half of my F&F final settlement as legal fees. I know another person who worked for 4 yrs + and not getting release letter from WIPRO, kolkata even after resignation letter being accepted.
Anyone ready to help please contact t_banerjee at hotmail dot com
Thanks and Regards,
