Gratuity / severance pay for household driver  


Does a household driver who has completed 10 years of service need to be paid gratuity / severance pay. no other person are employed by the household


Under section 1(3) of the Gratuity Act, it is applicable to employees engaged in factories, mines, oilfields, plantations, ports, railway companies, shops or other establishments with 10 or more employees.

In your case, as this is a household, the Gratuity Act is not applicable, even it employs 10 or more people.
