Satyanarain Vs. M/S.
Haryana Breweries Ltd.  INSC 1872 (5 November 2008)
IN THE SUPREME COURT
OF INDIA CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CIVIL APPEAL NO.7275 OF 2002 SATYANARAIN
....APPELLANT Versus ORDER Heard learned counsel for the parties.
We have gone through
the demand notice issued by the appellant and the statement made by him before
the Labour Court, in which the appellant has not claimed that he has worked for
240 days continuously in one year from the date of his alleged employment till
the date of his termination by the respondent.
The award of the
Labour Court reveals that the appellant has not produced his engagement letter
or any other documentary evidence to show that he was an employee of the
respondent. On the contrary, the records show that the appellant was an
employee of some contractor through contd...2/- ::2::
whom he was paid
daily wages on vouchers basis. The evidence adduced on record does not prove
that the appellant was an employee of the respondent and his services were
illegally terminated by the respondent. The Labour Court recorded award against
the appellant which has been affirmed by the High Court.
We do not find any
infirmity in the impugned order of the High Court which calls for interference.
The appeal is accordingly dismissed with no order as to costs.
