Global steel Holdings Limited / Non-payment of salary of expatriate
The Comptroller-General (Immigration),
Lagos state command,
Sub: Non-payment of salaries and pending dues by Global Steel Holdings Limited
I had worked with Global steel holdings limited from last three years. On receiving the termination of contract from GSHL vide their letter dated 15 may’08, I came from India on 23 rd may’08 to settle my pending dues with my employer GSHL. I reported to Mr. Mukesh Aggarwal GM (Finance) GSHL in Lagos and he assured me that he would release my full & final payment. He promised me nearly 3-4 times and in this process I spent more than 45 days in Lagos. In this respect, I also requested our High commission of India to intervene and he also requested Mr. Mukesh Aggarwal, GM (Finance) to release my payment but they had release only 60% of my full & final payment and in this process my cerpac card and re-entry visa both expired by 10/7/08.
Prior to expire of my re-entry visa, I had requested you vide my letter dated 08/07/08 and subsequently you granted me a visiting pass for 30 days to settle my dues with GSHL, but it is regret to state that even after long follow-up, GSHL has not paid my full dues and they deliberately delaying in my payment.
Also, I am very surprised to note that GSHL is still bringing the expatriates from India though they are incapable of paying their salaries.
I have exhausted all my money and I have no money to go back to India. I am highly feeling depressed and humiliated with the attitude of the management of GSHL hence I request you to look into the matter and try to help me to resolve the issues with the management of GSHL and also warn them to release my payment immediately.
