employer not giving salary
I have an acquaintance who used to work for a firm. He left the job because his employer had stopped paying him the salary. He still owes him Rs 1.5 lakhs. Please suggest how to tackle this situation and force him to pay his money back.
In your case you can go for enforcement of your contract and compensation for it under section 73 of the Contract Act. If you elaborate more on the facts of your case and if you have a written agreement or a contract executed between your acquaintance and his employer then you may file a summary suit under Order 37 of Civil Procedure Code for the payment of salary. Firstly you shall serve the employer a legal notice for payment of salary accrued to them and then in case of non-payment and non-adherence to the legal notice you may file a summary suit for the payment of salary i.e., the liquidated sum of money (which is a requirement of Order 37 of CPC). Summary suits also help in speedy disposal of your claim.
It is a clear case of breach of contract between employer and employee and damage can be compensated under section 73 of Indian Contracts Act, 1872. Though you have not disclosed all the terms and conditions of employment but I am suggesting some ways that can be helpful to your acquaintance for getting his dues back:
