In India, the rate of legal awareness is not very high and there is a lack of implementation of general laws. Therefore, few dishonest employers and companies deprive their employees of their hard-earned money. In such a situation instead of feeling exploited, the employee can send a legal notice for non-payment of salary.

Employees in India do lack knowledge of rights available to them through the constitution and various statutory laws. Non-payment or delayed payment of salary by the employer is one of the most common problems faced by employees during their tenure of employment. The problem is more severe when they request for their last salary payment or payment of unavailed perks pending with employer at the time of resignation or at the end of the employment contract.

If an employer deprives an employee of their salary or delays crediting the amount, then an employee can send a legal notice for non-payment of salary to the employer or the company. To draft a legal notice to recover payments, seek the help of a good advocate.
