In my onsite deputation letter my company indicated liquidated damages of Rs 5 Lakhs in the event i did not return back to the company after onsite assignment.
Due to several reasons i did not return back to that company. Please advise me about the validity of such letters with negative covenants.
Thanks

An employee has a right to resign his job at any time with out making loss to his employer. So no need to panic

Hi Mehrunisa, thanks for your reply. They have got me to sign for this in company letter head and not on stamp paper. Is this valid. Also it was signed on the day of departure to USA and i did not ahve a say in the agreement.
My manager had agreed in writing to relieve me from onsite but HR did not agree. Please let me know what grounds the company has to sue me?
Thanks

Since you did not execute the agreement in the stamp paper it is difficult to prove the guilty. More over your employer has to show that because of your absence your company has got extra ordinary loss which is very difficult to prove. So in my opinion they are not going to sue you. Its only a company's tactics. So you need not worry. More over the court will be always in the favour of the employees.
