Since few days ago my previous company terminated few of the employees due to cost cutting.
I have completed 6 years and 4 months in that company so I asked for my gratuity to management.They said they will inform me later after concerning with their charted accountant.
After few days,I again asked for my gratuity matter.They denied to pay my gratuity for below technical reason.
"CA said that I have worked for two different companies:
1. XYZ Solutions (from my joining month Apr 2009 to Dec 2011)
2. XYZ Software Solutions LLP (Since Jan 2012 to June 2015 which was my terminated date)
So, legally I have not worked in a single organization for 5 years."
Company founder is the same person for both the companies.
They also not provided me offer later & appointment during I joined.
They have provided me appointment later on 30th June 2015.
Is company gave the valid reason for gratuity?
Please guide me to get my gratuity beneifts.
Anykind of help will be great appriciates. From India, Valsad
