If employer forcefully asked to sign on the changed terms & conditions, then is it legal?
If someone leaves company without notice period as per the changed service terms & conditions (forcefully signed), can employer take action on that?

What is the emaning of forcefully signed? Is it at gun point... If it is at gun point then ikt is illegal

But Companies do change the terms at executive levels at the time of promotions and increments and sometimes based on requirements. Then they ask the employees to sign the duplicate copy in token of acceptance

If an employee does not sign, then he continues with old terms In unionised category, Management need to give Notice under ID Act In case of non unionisd category, no notice is required. If one accepts the change, he continues in the organisation If he does n ot accept he may have to quit.


At the time of joining employee was informed that they work 5 days a week. After a year the Company decides to go in for 6 days of work.If the employee who is not in unionised category, does not like this change, the only option for him is to leave the organisation.

Similaraly there may be instances of downward revision of benefits . One can not say that signature was obtained under duress. It is possible to take up the issue before a civil court. But once an employee goes to court, it may be very difficult for him to get a good change

Changes in Food bonus uniform, travel allowances, work hours transfer to another location are all normal changes
