I was working for an MNC. Last month they have sent me to some training outside India. i had not signed any bond or agreement concerned to this training. After coming back I had an argument with my manager and I resigned as GM supports him blindly and there was no chance of my sustaining in organisation. I even stopped going to company the very second day.
The following day I recieved a notice on company letter head that a police complaint is made against me and also same kind of letter being sent to passport office.
I phoned my GM and director regarding this and they started abusing me verbally on phone.
Now when I asked them for payment of three month\'s notice period, a simple mail from HR not on company head even, calculation was made e.g gross salary 44321*3= 13263 Rs. Now when I again asked to put it on a company letter head they replied me with a lawyerlegal notice. And it now includes training expenditure, loss of project, expenditure of court proceedings, lawyer fee making

2]what are the grounds on which the complaint is framed.
3]what are your company policies when an employee resigns,
4]did your company accepted your resignation?
5]do you have an acknowledgement of the resignation submitted?
6]are you in the possession of any of the company assets like laptop, mobile, or any other vehicles?
7]was the training which you have attended is in house or out bonded.

Also please be informed that we have a association for employee grievances, hence this suggestion. As per your posting it ap

Dear sir

Thanks for replying.

I was in talks with hr through mails regarding the payment of notice period. All I want is relieving letter once I pay the 3 months salary(notice period) but I don't know why they have sent me a legal notice from lawyer when I asked them regarding FNF sheet and relieving letter.

Police complaint and complaint to passport office was sent to me just after I stopped going to company. Its on companies letter head, maybe it was a threat, because till now i see no action.

Company policy is to relieve person when his dues are cleared once. But since its a very small company, they always take it personal when someone resigns, earlier they have fired many people who put there resignation. So there were many cases where people resign and stop coming because no one wants get abused or harrassed.

Once HR has mailed me the dues, its clear that they have accepted my resign.

No I don't have any kind of possession with me, related in any means to the company.

The training I undergone was in the same company I worked for on some other location outside India.

Though I have not signed any kind of legal bond or agreement other than the job offer agreement, I don't know why they are taking out the point of staying with company for next 2 years. If you have sent your employee to some other location does that means that he's bound to listen what ever crap you say to him or treat him bad. Its like I got an opportunity and I left, conditions were becoming worst with each passing day. So the choice I was left with is to forfeit the game.

Amount I had to pay is above one lakh and its not easy for an employee to arrange such amount in a single day, though I have arranged it and ready to deposit it into their accoount all I want in return is my relieving letter and they are now not ready to talk on this rather they have sent me a notice that now I have to pay 8.6 lakhs which includes court fees, lawyer fees, loss occured in the project. Already I was mentally harassed by the company on phone, through emails(police intimation and passport office intimation).

Can they now move to court and recover amount of their choice. Please suggest me with my next step.

Dear Shan,
In terms of Indian law such bonds or any trrm that you would serve the company for a period of two years I. Case they finance your studies are not enforceable in law. In other words company cannot force you to stay with them. However they still have a right to clim damages that they would suffer, provided that they could prove actual damages suffered because of the fact that you have left the company suddenly. In our experience to ring evidence for such a loss I'd quite difficult. Therefore relax but do take help of a lawyer to respond to the notice and to take care of the legal suit. Please do to not make any payments.

Hi
You don't need to reply to any notice unless it is sent through court by filing a suit. Company can do nothing and since HR guys play more role of Administration than Development with partial knowledge of the law, HR department is no threat and even legal notices sent by lawyer are mere hoaxes. On the contrary you can approach the labour court and plead harassment by the manager and GM due to which they dismissed you without any rhyme and reason, as there has been no written correspondence regarding the same.
Keep lull and carry your future nicely.
Best
