Sir, I am employed by a private company. I have not been paid salary since the last 3 months. Every time I am assured that the salary will be released next month. What is the legal way for me to get my money out from this company? Can I go to a court to get a solution?

Expert Advice


Employees are categorized in India as a workman (as defined under the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947) or as a non-workman. As a workman, you have the option to approach a labour court for filing a case against the employer for non payment of dues. If you are a non-workman then you have the recourse to a civil court of law. Considering you are still employed with the company, any legal action you take may be met with resistance from the employer and they may try to create an atmosphere of animosity. This is just a preliminary view based on the limited facts provided, and our advise may change depending upon additional information, documents, and discussions which we may have.
