Recently i am faced with a predicament. My superior threatened me with strong measures to be taken against me. Reasons being i asked for a release from the account citing unavoidable personal circumstances. I explained to him everything in detail as he enquired about it.

He then told me that recently some of my excolleagues were fired by terming them as underperformers. No notice nothing. He threatened me that he will show me as an underperformer and throw me out of the company. I perform reasonably well. Even work on weekends.

As he is a close friend of our HR many people are speculating that its helping him bypass some of the company policies as sudden termination of someone is not that easy. Many people say that they have lost confidence in the HR and are planning to escape as soon as they get an opportunity.

On the other hand i want to serve the company as i am a firm believer in its values and the opportunities that exist within it for personal as well as professional growth. Nowadays he started behaving in a harsh manner and is not providing me with leaves. For example, he is providing me with 3 days of leave for my engagement and is counting it as 5 days inclusive of weekends.

Lastly nobody approves of him as everybody thinks of him as a person who infringes on one's personal space. As an example he was asking me whether my mother approves of my girlfriend or not. When can i meet your girlfriend.

What do i do if he suddenly terminates my contract with the company? Is there any way i can defend this without resorting to any kind of legal help and with minimum or no damage to both the parties within the framework of the company? Is legal help my only option if i am terminated? For i have heard about the Industrial Dispute Act from my cousin who practices law.

I love my job. I love my company. Its an excellent place to work.

While you explained the situation in pretty good detail, pl note that the choices/options you have in-hand would ALSO DEPEND on the company.
Pl give more details about your company--sector, size, multi-locations or single location operations, your role/position, etc
I notice SOME similarities in your situation & the situation mentioned in this earlier thread--so you COULD pick-off SOME options from it.
However, pl give more details as I mentioned above. That will help the members to give well-informed & focused suggestions.
All the Best.
