Hi Seniors,
I recently came across this platform and was eager to find a solution for my suffering. I am working in an Indian Software Company as a Content Writer. I joined three months back. While joining I was promised of many things like working on whitepapers, social media mgmnt. and involvement in all other marketing activities of all our products. While working I realized that I would only write a few articles for the company\'s newsletters and advertisements for Situations vacant. Being a creative professional who only does a job when he loves it, I now understand that if I continue here I would slowly but surely destroy my creativity. However, while joining I signed on a company letter head paper saying that I would have to pay Rs.45635 if I leave the job within 1 year of employment. I just want to leave this position and do a job that I love and would learn from everyday. So I am applying for other jobs. My question is that if I leave this job after serving the 2 months noti

As the post seems to have not published the entire text I typed the remaining is said here.
My question is that if I leave this job after serving the 2 months notice and without paying the bond, am I breaking any law under IPC? I have not signed any stamp paper and surely the company has not spent even a single penny on my training. Seniors please suggest and help me get over these fraudulent employers who destroy careers by falsely painting imaginary pictures of professional growth.I am not a person to sit idly and enjoy the salary. So please help me. I have gone through several posts on bonds on this forum but still I am confused so asked.

Hello Arya,
The point is no employment bond can be made viable unless training is given. Even in such cases, the amount that the company can recover is only the training cost they incurred on the person.
SInce you have not been given any training, I do not think the bond is viable.
Nonetheless if you can provide the details or exact phrasing of the clause, it would be better to analyse...
Secondly would you be resigning on immediate grounds or you'd resign after you get a suitable opening?

Dear Arya

The paper you signed does not have any legal binding, as you said no training is provided to you to keep you bonded.

Better you look for a job outside and leave the current - if your frustration is manageable - after getting one. Since you already completed 3 months and may be in probation period, your notice period would be less. And once gets confirmed may have a different notice period (certain companies have this practice). But evaluate your priorities & situations and take a call when to quit.

If you love your profession and if your future employer ask reason for leaving the current job, explain it professionally, the same what you mentioned in your like the current one is not contributing your career growth and creativity; however the promises were like skyscrapers.

This may work as a two-prong fork - (a) the new employer will feel your confidence and dedication to your profession (positive) or (b) if they too are in the same line of thinking as what your current employer is (negative) you will be saved from another trap.
