Employer flip flopping on HR policy
I worked in an event management firm as a Business Development Executive for 5 months. Despite repeated reminders, the HR never issued me an offer letter. Instead an e- offer letter was issued which did not have any information about notice period. I quit the company in June 2015 as the job didn't offer any scope for growth. When I inquired about my dues, I received a mail from my manager saying that I should contact the HR 45 days my resignation. My employers are now withholding my dues for the month of May 2015 claiming that I never served notice period. Is there anything that I can do over here?

It is normal practice that once the offer has been made to the prospective employee, the company issued appointment letter on acceptance of that offer, after doing the necessary verification of educational and other credence. In your case it appears that you continue to serve the company without receiving an appointment letter. Under the circumstances, you may take a chance by sending them legal notice demanding therein to release your dues immediately.

Thanks for the answer. Would like to know if I stand a good chance here. When confronted with the management, I was told rather threatened that my payment won't be released and I can approach any court that I wish too. Hence I need to know what are my chances. Please help
