We have a little issue with one of our employees. He joined us about 2-3 months back. He resigned about a week ago and then went on leave for a week citing some personal problem. He was to join back today and complete his notice period of 45 days as per his appointment letter. However he has not showed up and is absconding.
This is a very typical scenario in the software industry where the employee just abscond leaving projects unfinished and without fulfilling the relieving formalities. I would like to know if there is any legal action that we can take against such people so that it also serves as a deterrent to other employees doing the same.
Please let me know at the earliest.

Your attitude seems to be harsh on employee. Dont be harsh on employee, HR is not for that. He must be having some personal work.
And when someone resigns, there is some reason behind it. You cannot force someone to stay with your company. And dont represent your company to the employees, and take these things to heart. Let it go as it is. Anyways there is nothing much to do in this case, as far as your profile is concerned. Better let your senior handle this. Put this question before your senior, and let them handle it. Dont think that going legal is a simple and better option. It is more of headache than releif. Because in any such case, it will be the HR who would be fighting for the company.

According to me u cant not take any legal action against such employees..rather u should try to find out the reason as to why employees are behaving in such manner..what is the problem..why they are getting demotivated and doing all this..talk to the employees..ask for there problem..as an HR u have to understand your employees to the best level...try to be friendly with them so that they can share their problem with you...if you will talk in harsh manner then they will never come up with the difficulties what they are facing and will choose the simple option of leaving the company.And also remember one thing employees dont leave the company they leave their Bosses.

Hi all
Actually i was working in a software company for 3 months and i was in training , during which i got admission in a good college and was forced to join the college very soon , But according company rules i should serve for atleast 2 months after keeping paper , so i just sent a mail of my medical certificate saying i am not well and will not b able to come to work for next 6 months.

Hi Dipti, your problem seems to be quiet simple. The solution is -try and speak with the employee, find out why he has resigned, is he interested in re-joining in case he's given an opportunity, does he want a sabatical.
If he doesnt respond, you can send him upto 3 Show Cause Notices, then later a notice asking him to pay the amount in lieu of the notice period.
All this has to be on behalf of the company. (on the letter head) signed by the authorised signatories.

Hi Dipti,
I understand your concern. You may definetely this this forward to legal cell of your organisation or any advocate who has been dealing similar issues with corporates.
In my opinion I think it is a time consuming process with meager result.
Posting this in humour section is concern, I am sure it would have happened by mistake from you, which is okay (you may have to be little careful in posting! :) in respective section)
As we all know this forum is to help others and ourselves about the things which we dont know and required to know.
Thanks & Regards,
