The Sindh High Court (SHC) issued its ruling on a case related to the termination of a Sui Southern Gas Company employee for taking leaves before retirement, declaring that it is employee’s right to avail outstanding leaves before retirement, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday. 

The court accepted the miscellaneous application of the Deputy General Manager Land and State Department. 

The court ruled that SSGC’s action against the employee was inappropriate and ordered SSGC to submit the outstanding dues to the court. 

An application was filed in SHC stating that Abbas Raza was an employee in Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) and his retirement date was 11 March 2022. He, however, was fired from job just one day before his retirement on the grounds of taking leaves. 

It further stated that although the outstanding leaves were taken prior to retirement as per statutory requirements, he was still fired. 

The petitioner claimed that SSGC’s action was against the law, and requested that the notification of dismissal should be declared null and void. Moreover, SSGC should be ordered to pay all the dues.
