hi annu,

I deeply empathise with your situation.
First,executing the bond by an organisation is termed as legal as long as the employer is fair.
If the bond is meant to exploit the employee,then you can challenge the bond in court with the pertext that the employer pressurised you to sign the bond in lurement of a job.Now,the employer is exploiting you for his gains.
As a support,you need to take print outs of all the scenarios which you shared with HR(formally/informally) to ensure there is a support of your case.
As such,bond is just a piece of paper to scare the employees.You can terminate the bond anytime while giving a leagal notice to the employer by filing case of exploitation/harrassment.
Please consult a lawyer,if you wish to do so.
Cheers:-)

Learn what is possible there / be patient and escape! - don't just look at the clock to run from u r work, if u r in a position where it requires stretching work time!

Understand this could be a test on you to check your attitude!

  • Please go thru the terms mentioned in Bond signed by you and your letter of appointment and you will know the consequences, in case you resign.
  • Bond will not stand the scrutiny of Legal System and Court, in case the terms of the bond are discriminatory to employee and only favoring employer.
  • You can also find out from the history of the company, regarding similar past cases. Has company ever made use of security cheque and what has been response after bouncing of cheque.
  • In case, bond signed by you is perfect from legal point of view, and you decide to quit then you will have to follow terms of the bond. So find out Legal, Technical validity of bond and then decide about leaving or any other action.
Thanks & Regards

Dear,

If you quit they will go for legal action,the best thing u can do is to tell them u cant work more than 6:oo pm,just frustate ur boss & employer until they ask to leave u or to give resignation.The bond is vice-versa if you work poorly they cant take you out.so if u dont want to work with them create problem for them,until they ask u the resignation.

Be on time and leave at 6. Dont work extra, tell them clearly this is not part of my job. They themself will make way for you.

Dear annu.mlh,

Lemme first ask you whether you are sure about the next employer you are gonna work with. Again what makes you think that the work is not proficient? Work hours in any company would be more and not a frame based one. You yourself told that you are a very new employee to that organization.

It takes a little while to get along with in any organization for any employee. Do state some specific reason for a valuable feedback.
