I had joined an IT company in May 2013. I had signed 1 year bond (It was not on bond paper, All things were mentioned on appointment letter and Appointment letter is without company seal and with signature of CEO.). I have not given any salary slip for any month and professional tax was also not deducted from salary.
I wanted to go for further study so i left job without 1 month notice period and informed them through e-mail. Now they pressurize me to return last months salary. And if i don\'t return it, they threaten me to take legal actions against me. So please suggest me whether i should return 1 month salary or not pay attention to it?

Sir, irrespective of bond whether on stamp paper or not you have signed a tie-up with the company for a period of one year., and also you have not served one month notice as mentioned by you. when it comes to your questions in this regard whether to return one month salary or to ignore it., i would say company as such cannot take any legal action on you. BUT IT CAN DEFINITELY DAMAGE YOUR NAME IN THE JOB MARKET. therefore request you to view in this angle also and take a decision. It is also better to speak to the management and convey your concern and get an amicable way out.
Dear company can not take any legal action against you.morally worng on your part but legally they can not take any action
