Dear Seniors,
i have signed 1.5 year bond with comnet, now it is been 1 year, i was preparing side by side gov exams and i finally cracked one, my joining is coming on 15 july,2013...what i should do??
is it possible i take a medical leave of 6 month and join the government job( m going as a fresher), then after doing job for 6 month on govt job and taking leave of 1 months, i can rejoin the hcl comnet and then given the resignation, will these 6 month count on bond?
please help.

Hi :
You can resign and request for an early release. If there is any dues to be paid from your side (if any stated in the bond in case you resign before completion of 18 months) please settle the same and move on with a relieving and experience letter.
Please note it is illegal to have double employment hence you should resign & get released from HCL and then join the new organisation. Regarding medical leave I dont think any pvt company will give leave for such a long period unless it is a case of serious accident or something very critical. Moreover it is not right to mis-represent info it will certainly have an adverse effect on you as well as others who may genuinely need leave.
Anyhow if the financial liability is too high at HCL, I think you should speak to your seniors and HR and tell them about why you want to move on. Request them if the balance bond period can be waived off.

Thanx for your Phenomenon support .
But i dont care of an experience letter or anything pertaining to hcl. bond money is 3 lakh and presently my financial condition is not well, Yes i will try to talk to My RM and if he will be ready then will it help gia?
I agree ethics always counts but still 3 lakh is not just fair for the training that is just a mock on stupidity.
thanks and Regard

Hi :

I presume it would have been a informed decision for you at the time of joining HCL to take up the assignment inspite of the bond and the bond liability.

Today since you have another job, ethically it may not be right to simply dump the present assignment. You have been associated with the company for 1 year and I am sure you too benefited from the company in terms of learning, blending into a corporate setup etc.

While I understand that you do not need the experience letter since you are joining the govt orgn as a fresher. Well there are many ways to get away from paying up the bond amount but then you need to introspect at a personal level and take an appropriate decision. At the best I can suggest you to speak to your seniors/HR and honestly tell them about why you want to move on, share your future aspirations and how a govt job fulfills your aspirations. In India though a bond is not legal but yet the company can invoke legal action if the same has been signed by you.

All the best !!

Hcl commet is a Bpo right ?
What training did they give you ?
The value of the bond cannot exceed the cost of training. Further, the bond can't have same value till last date. Read previous posts on bonds. It may be illegal and invalid.
However, not resigning and telling lies in the old and new company is a bad idea. Specially more in a government job where you can be removed on such grounds. Do not take the path you outlined in your post
