Re: Employer holding salary after resignation

I have tendered my resignation on Jan 09 and last day should be Feb 09, hoever the company wrote to me officially to request me to stay on for another 2 months which i did not reply officially but verbally. Therefore my last month of work is supposed to be April 09. The company releases the salary in two batches each month once on the 15th and the other at the end of the month. I notice today that my salary isn't in and i ask hr, i was told that because of my resignation my salary is being hold for one month. Is this legally right? i have given them prior notice in accordance to my contract and they were the one who requested me to extend.

Didn't they tell the reasons for withholding your salary for one month? If they still did not pay you after one month, you may complain to the Labour Department.

they did not say specifically but they say just to make sure that everything is proper before they release my salary, however do they have the right to hold even for a month because the law cites that

The wages, less lawful deductions, earned by but not yet paid to an employee whose contract of service terminates in accordance with section 11(1) or of section 12 shall be paid to such employee not later than the day on which such contract of service so terminates.

Yes, you are right. You have the right to complain right now if you don't feel like waiting.
