    If your company carries their business, or personally work for gains in Mumbai then you can file a case within the local limits of  these jurisdiction. The cause of action arose in Gurgaon, Delhi, so you can file your suit within such jurisdiction. Furthermore, you will have to check your appointment letter, whether your company has provided any jurisdiction in case of any dispute. 


    Before filing a case, we suggest you  to send a legal notice, to the Company claiming their your salary , PF and other amount recoverable and thereby requesting the company to comply with the same within 30 days.


    If the company does not comply with the said legal notice within 30 days, then you and other people can file a civil suit against the company for claiming his full and final settlement along with the damages and compensation for the harassment and mental torture.


    Further the court fee levied will be somewhere 1 percent to 3 percent.


    Kindly contact us for any further details and action.
