    A case which obtained back pay for a disabled employee whose just promotion was unfairly delayed

    Date : 16/07/2010

    Sukhdev Singh vs. HPVNL, Panchkula
    Sukhdev Singh was employed as a cane weaver in the Panchkula HPVNL since 1986. After he had been working for five years, he expected to be considered for a promotion as per the organization’s policy.

    When he wasn’t, he filed a petition before the Punjab and Haryana High Court. In 2005, the High Court ruled that he must be promoted. The order was complied with and Mr. Singh was promoted to clerk in 2005. Since the promotion should have occurred much earlier, Mr. Singh asked for some compensation for the almost 10 year period during which he was denied the benefit of his promotion.

    To obtain his due compensation, Mr. Singh consulted with HRLN-Chandigarh and a petition was brought before the Chief Commissioner for Disabilities, Haryana. After hearing arguments, the Commissioner ordered that Mr. Singh be given back pay and other withheld benefits from the date on which he should have been promoted.
