    A worker died during working in a pharmacy company, compensation demanding by his family is very high.

    I am the owner of a pharmacy company. One of my workers died on duty. The postmortem report is saying that he got died due to heart attack. So the compensation is not applicable for this kind of death, though I am ready to give a compensation of 1 lakhs. But his family is demanding more. It is about the reputation of my company.

    Hi..First of all as you mentioned the death of the worker occured due to heart attack as per the postmortem reports so your company is certainly not liable to pay the compensation for the same as per the rules..But now as you want to pay the family to save your company's reputation i think it is really thoughtful of you and you have taken the right decision ..This will also help the worker's family members as they would be suffering financially now and this money should certainly be of utmost importance to them..

    But firstly as the family members are asking for a higher amount than that which you are giving to them is certainly wrong on their part as they should realize that you are not liable to pay anything and even if you refuse to give them anything they cant do anything against you as you are in the clear..Whatever you are giving to them is added bonus to them and they should be grateful to you for that..You should make this point clear to them and then they will surely not demand more..

    So by any means make them understand this thing and they will agree with you..

    Good luck..Thanks
