SC to decide whether gratuity can be withheld

New Delhi, Nov 6 (PTI) The Supreme Court will lay down the law on whether an employer can withhold gratuity of an employee after retirement if a departmental proceeding is pending against him, saying there is no authoritative judgement on the issue.

The court referred the issue to a three-judge bench which will also decide whether an employee, who has retired, can be penalised with retrospective termination of service which is a condition for forfeiture of gratuity.
