Payment of a living wage Legally binding employment relationship

The plaintiff received his last salary on 2 June 2015. After that he was absent from the factory up to 17 June as his mother was sick. He informally informed the floor manager in charge that he would be absent for 3 to 4 days. On 17 June he returned to the factory where he was told to look for a new job.

He has been working there for 6 years, first joining on 1 January 2009, though the date on his punch card indicates 1 April 2010.
The plaintiff wants to work, but given the management decision to fire him, he wants to receive his due salary for 12 days worked and other benefits as well. His regular salary is 11,250 BDT.

He did not sign the resignation letter. The factory asked him to come to the factory on 10 August but he did not go, as he was scared that the management might forcefully make him resign.
