I was employed with a IT Services company in bangalore on a contract basis. After 1 and a half years of working with them i was forced to go on a medical leave for around 20 days. During which my HR representative asked for supporting medical docs, which i promptly sent. The certificate i sent was the original medical certificate given by the doctor who had treated me earlier.
Then he was not satisfied with this and asked for hospital admission and discharge documents to be sent as well. I informed him that i will try to make it to work to submit the same, but then coz of my health i cudnt make it on the promised day to work and cudnt reply to his call as well.
After a few days i call to find out that i have been terminated and HR Manager is not willing to negotiate to provide a resignation acceptance or relieving letter. They bluntly replied that come background verification they'll say that i was terminated.
Isnt it unethical to terminate someone who is on a medical/accidental leave without prior notification (he cud have sent a sms) or an option to resign?
One more thing is that the contract with the company i was working for was 2 months away from termination by the client. I went on leave from May 4 2011, contract is terminating 30 June 2011. Till now i.e. in the past few months no one from the company has updated most of its employees about the contract termination till the month of May.
I request seniors to review the situation and advise on what/how i can negotiate further. 30th June 2011 From India, Bangalore
