I did some freelance work for one India based organization. There is one contract signed by me accepting all their terms and conditions (it was printed on a plain A4 sheet of paper).

From start till the end of the work they have not raised a single issue via email or phone. Never notified me about the content or behavior or anything but on payment day deducted a huge amount from pay stating different reasons. These reasons are not mentioned in the agreement like it will deduct payment based on that.

The question is: How can I make them pay me completely? Is there a government body who can stand on my side inquire/investigate them and so I can get my money.

Are these portals good enough to complain:



  • Yes, the governs body is the court - you sue them. – Dale M Apr 4 at 0:03

    Were they an "employer" or a "client"?? The term "freelance work" would indicate that they are not an "employer". Independent contracting is quite different than actual employment. – Scott Apr 14 at 22:33
  • You are right, I worked for a client who sent me to their client's location for work. – paul Apr 15 at 9:31

Yes , you can sue them in the court, before the appropriate forum. But before that it would be better if you share you appointment letter or any agreement that you have entered with your employer .
