I joined an MNC 6 months back.I hav signed a bond for 1 year.Now i want to quit from tat company.Will i get any problems fron the company or anyone pls suggest me so tat i ll not get any legal problems.Also if i join new company will i get any prob.


I am pained that members of HR fraternity even think of breaking a bond!
What are your compelling circumstances that you desire to jump the bond?

Breaking the bond is like breaking a contract. It is a crime at law. If one had no intentions to honour the bond, why did he get into it at all! Purely selfish interests and that itself if often the reason to break the bond.

If as HR we are the conscious keepers to the organization and we only conduct ourselves devoid of value orientation, how can we even preach dignity and decorum to be observed by others? If WE have no regard and commitment for ethics, we have no right to be shouldering HR responsibilities.

I am aware that while dealing with the corrupt enforcement agencies that are statutory, we are often helpless. But in our own case also if we choose to ignore ethics, binding to the law of the land, concept of dignity and decorum and avoid being above board, what kind of an example we will be setting for others to follow/emulate?

I may NOT have answered your question directly, but what I have stated needs to be internalized by each HR in personal and professional conduct.

Please do not feel bad about what I have said. It a reply to your post but the message is for all the community!

I understand what u say.But here I m having night shifts.My health s not permitting for tat.I m often hospitalised.My manager s not taking any actions for my concern.Thats y i Want to leave the company.What is the use of earning without considering the health


Your reason/s are perfectly understandable.

I would advise you to convince your management to either resolve your pronblem or to waive the bond bondage!

If that is not possible for any reason whatsoever, I would recommend paying up (I do not even know the amount in question!) and walking out honourably!

Breaking the bond creates bad reputation and a sense of guilt. Also if not the new employer, as times passes many will know about your having broken the bond. This could jeopardize your critical interests unexpectedly.

I would recommend you find an honourable way out. If you are unable to get a clean exit, try and negotiate the period of bondage, or a cost that you may have incur for having broken the bond. But consider your future and protect it in this instance as you have to GROW in life!!!

Ultimately you have to make up your mind yourself and act!

Good Luck.
