Important point before calculating Gratuity:

The most important point before calculation is to know your contract type, if it is Limited or Unlimited? Because gratuity is depending up to your contract type and is based on the reason for end of service either it is Resignation or Termination?

Gratuity for Less than 1 Year of Service:

  14. My case is little complicated as I am working in oil field company. I have a total working experience in the same company for 12 years. Now as part of restructuring of the Company, they are releasing people.
    I joined the company in the year 19.Aug.2007. They paid the partial payment of the gratuity in the year 2011. After that i was moved to various countries where i had the UAE Visa till Aug 2013. All this time i was working with the same company.
    I was back in UAE in 2015 and till now i have accrued total of 3.62 years after coming back till the release date which is 31-Mar-2019.
    Now the company is saying that i am eligible for payment from 2011 to Aug 2013 with the base payment as per the contract at that time (and not with the last base payment calculation). And for the last 3.62 years with 21 days of base pay even if i am with the same company for the 12 years (not 30 days of calculation).
    So please guide me regarding the gratuity calculation for the period as stated above.
    Looking forward to your response.

    Now I don't understand how he calculated gratuity, he calculated it on 14 days but it should be on 21 days, it has been 4 years of my service. He gave me gratuity AED 1866 but I believe it should be AED 2800.

    1. Contract Type: Limited (2 years contract for 2 times)
    2. Period: June/15/2015 to May/23/2019 (4 years)
    3. Reason for end of service: Contract expired (Did not renew contract on completion)
    4. Basic Salary: 1000

    Please help me find out if he calculated correct of he played with me.

  21. My employer is not calculating the gratuity using the formula above. They are working out a yearly salary and dividing by 365. Then they multiply by number of days worked. They are working out some kind of a gratuity rate. This is also not leading up to 2 years because we were instructed to hand in our notice of non-renewal of contract.
