Company Law

Last Updated on by Admin LB

The history of the Indian Company Law began with the Joint Stock Companies Act of 1850. Thereafter, a cumulative process of amendment and consolidation brought us to the most comprehensive and complicated piece of legislation, the Companies Act, 1956. As of today, the Companies Act, 2013 has replaced the Companies Act, 1956. The new Act has 470 sections and 7 schedules as against 658 sections and 15 schedules in the 1956 Act.

This course consists of 5 modules which cover a range of topics from the salient features of the Companies Act to various doctrines and Tribunals. To help readers get an in-depth understanding of the Indian Company Law, we have also provided well-researched and analytical articles on miscellaneous subjects towards the end of the course.

      Section 3 of the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 provides for a ‘Controlling Authority’. Different areas have different controlling authorities that ensure the effective administration of this act. The act gives the controlling authority the status of a ‘quasi-judicial’ body which implies that it is empowered to adjudicate disputes arising out of non-payment of gratuity.
      The Controlling Authority may issue a notice in Form ‘O’ to both the applicant employee and the employer. The two parties will then have to appear before the authority on a specified date, time, and place, given in the notice.
      If the employer fails to present himself or an authorized person before the authority, the authority may proceed to hear the case and determine the employee’s application ex parte.
      If the employee fails to appear before the authority on the specified date, then the application will be disposed of.
      The authority, on hearing the case and examining the facts may pass a direction and issue a notice to the employer if it is established that employee is entitled to gratuity. A notice is served to the employer in Form ‘R’.
      Generally, an Assistant Labour Commissioner of a state is appointed as a controlling authority in a state with the hearing taking place in the office of the Labour Commissioner. If you have been denied gratuity payment by your employer, you can file a complaint under Section 8 of the act, against the company. The controlling authority, on hearing both sides, if satisfied with the employee’s stance, can direct the employer to pay the gratuity that is due along with the interest on it.
      If an employer fails to pay gratuity amount along with interest 30 days after the controlling authority has directed it to do so, the appropriate government, be it Central Government or State Government, whoever is concerned with the employing organization, will authorize the controlling authority to start prosecution against the employer, within 15 days.
