I am an experienced software engineer and was forced to sign a bond of 1.5 years while joining the company. I left the company after 6 days as there was only rules and regulations. they did not provide any training or any salary but they asking to pay 50000 as per the bond..They have sent a legal notice. what i should do? I don't have interest to work there and to pay 50000. Can any one suggest me..
Dear Member,
First of all u mention that u r exp employee then why did make mstake???? when u hv given interview u were nt aware that u should have sign contract with company.why u r joined in that company and sign bond.

Yes i feel its my fault...u mean i have to amount? they did not spend a single paise on me, still i need to pay 50000? i worked for 6 days. Once they told that i need to work 12 hours but its not possible me as i need to travell to my room. They are not ready to listen to me they think only about work not my problem...
Dear Member, u were contract with compnay on legel stemp paper????? hav u read contract before signed??????????????????????????????
yes its on stamp paper.. and i didnt read it as they asked to sign and they were hurry.
after searching on internet i got the fallowing this true?
If the bond is service agreement/ contract bond (without any training investment on employoee), then that bond is invalid bond and do not stand in law of court.
Employee need not to worry of breaking it.
If the bond is a training bond then it may stand in law of court for validity, for which we need to see content of bond clauses.
Anyhow in India now bonded labour is baned.. which means no employer can keep any employee on any kind of bond/agreement which is not valid in law of court.
Now a days employer use this weapon to create psychological effect on employee, apart from this there is no value of such bonds.
This person should see a lawyer and should send his compay a formal explanation notice if he fits all aspects on legality.

Dear P Jamadar,
You have written that you were forced to sign that I think no one will accept because you are experienced person.
Making judgent about the company within 6 days I think you are takin much faster decision because unless you stay their for couple of months you cannot put a blame on company. Now as far as rules and regulations are concerned now it is depending upon the person how he see those because every company does rules and regulations for the betterment of company and system.
You have written salary also now question comes after accepting offer saying that they are paying less salary is not justified to me.
I think you stay their for 1.5Years & then decide for rest of years.
Best of Luck.

After going to company i came to know that they are taking every employs original marks cards and 1.5 yr bond. some Eng students getting 6000/M...but i did nt give marks cards
did u get legal notice by register AD or CPC. did u accept it??????????????????????????????????????........................................................................wht was written in notice.
As a HR I totally oppose for taking origional documents from employees. Company can take origional only for cross verification but keeoing it with the company is wrong. For that purpose you can definately take call but for other purposes it will be too fast.

Dear P Jamadar, Dont worry... Nothing u have to pay... But next time think first and then join... Regards, Adv. Apurva Singh
