Dear Respectful Legal Advisors,

i have problem with Employee bond

6 months back i have joined a company and signed on a BOND (on company letter head) for 2 years and condition is if i break the BOND i have to pay 1Lakhs as the compensation now recently i got admission in an reputed MBA college(As i want to go for MBA) i have left that company and joined MBA , few days back i got legal notice from the company stating that i have breached the bond and i have to pay a sum of 1Lakh as compensation stating that they have trained me but i joined them as an exp employee not trainee and i have proof of all timing sheets which states that they have assigned me project task not training.

like me my colleague also got facing the same problem he did not accept that legal notice sent from the advocate will he get another notice.

i have one more doubt kindly clear it

How many time does an advocate sends the legal notice if we keep on refusing to take showing several reasons and what will happen?

is there any law that he should send the notice till i receive it ?

can he file a case in court if i refuse to take the Notice at the FIRST time ?

looking forward to your valuable advices..

kindly rely ASAP.

regards,

Hi
If any letter or correspondence or legal notice sent by RPAD or speed post is refused by a recepient, the postal department will endorse on the cover of the said correspondence as "refused" and will be returned to the sender. Since the notice is refused, it is deemed as a valid service and the sender can proceed with suit before the court of law for recovery of money spent by them or loss suffered by them due to your act of leaving the job.
The remedy can be to issue a suitable reply notice, defend the case and make a counter claim, if any or better to negotiate with company about the compensation which you are liable to pay.
Refusing the legal notice is not a correct one

As far as I Know, some companies are executing bonds with the employees knowing that it is illegal, bad in law, as it is one sided. So if they go to court, they will not succeed.

Dear Ashish
Please document all your correspondence. Have you received the offer of employment? If so, keep the copy of the same with you. Hope you might have put up an application about your salary revision and for that also you might have a copy with duly acknowledged by your HR Department. Then You submit your resignation letter and mention regarding your notice period service or buy back option for notice period.
If you have all these in writing then surely they cannot do anything against you and spoil your future career.
