I was working in a medium sized software Co.
However, the co. ran into financial issues, post which they stopped paying salary for all employees from Nov-2012 onwards.
From March/ April\'13 onward they started crediting part salary (capped at 50K)for the prev months. So in Mar \'13, we got part Salary of Nov\'12, in Apr\'13 part Salary for Dec\'12 and so on.
I resigned in June\'2013 with dues (Salary) pending to the extent of 2.5 lacs.
During relieving, the company assured (verbally) that they would clear all outstanding dues with no commitment on the timelines.
To put things in perspective, employees who resigned in Dec\'12/Jan\'13 also are yet to get their final dues.
1. What is the legal recourse in this situation to ensure recovery of dues.
2. Can a Company continue to operate like this without clearing the o/s dues for all relieving employees?
I think a complaint was also registered with the Labour department. 6th August 2013
