Gratuity under Social Security Code

  • The Social Security Code has fixed different thresholds with respect to eligibility for gratuity of permanent and fixed-term employees
  • Gratuity shall be payable to eligible employees by every shop or establishment in which ten (10) or more employees are employed, or were employed, on any day of the preceding twelve (12) months
  • Gratuity shall be payable to an employee on the termination of his employment after he has rendered continuous service for not less than five (5) years, on his superannuation; on his retirement or resignation; on his death or disablement due to accident or disease; on termination of his contract period under fixed-term employment. However, continuous service of five (5) years shall not be necessary where the termination of the employment of any employee is due to the expiration of fixed-term employment
  • For every completed year of service or part thereof in excess of six (6) months, the employer shall pay gratuity to an employee at the rate of fifteen (15) days’ wages. The amount of gratuity payable to an employee shall not exceed such amount as may be notified by the Central Government. Gratuity under the SS Code is payable to employees hired directly or through a contractor
