What to do if any employee from IT field is intimidating for suicide?
From India, Khopoli
Dear, Vedant555, you have not specified the role and the details of the event or issue or the reason for such behavior., in any case, suicidal tendency is a medical problem, and need to be attend very carefully. As such there are certain medications and certain counseling schedules are required to reduce this and gradually can even avoid it also., but again all depends on the following:
1] who is the employee: Male or Female, because either sex have certain internal and external forces which makes them to have this kind of tendency.
2] since how long is he or she associated with this company of yours
3] what is his or her role and expected contributions
4] what kind of pay pack he or she avails (your answer can be broad like 20k to 30k example)
5] whether the employee is this case is married or unmarried
6] whether he is living with his parents or alone or with wife
7] if married whether he or she is in the same relation or divorced etc
8] if divorced on what grounds
9] what are the financial commitments of this employee in question (known to you)
10] did you ever tried to console him either directly or indirectly
11] did this tendency is communicated to his or her parents or to his or her spouse
12] do your company provides any medical benefits or reimbursements if yes to what extant??
this list of questions is large and can be specified to the issue in question, therefore a specification of what is referred to in your posting, will enable us and the seniors of this forum to drill down the options and to give you a reasonably relevant and accurate proposal and guideline to follow if you need.
This is definitely not out of place to caution you, just in case any thing happens to the employee in question then whether willingly or unwillingly your management has to face quite a lot of legal obligations, therefore your reply providing the details is very much required, or if this is just a knowledge learning posting made by you, ignore this reply also.

Thanks for your reply.
Company hired one candidate from college and company have agreement, (this is not bond) you have to work with company at least 2 year, If you don't do that then you have to company expenses like Recruitment cost, office expenses and etc.
Candidate came to HR after 3-4 day (He joined before 5 day) with resignation letter,But the company HR is telling all the policies and If anyone don't pay that amount, then company will take action against that candidate.
So, Candidate is intimidating for suicide, So can you please help me.

From India, Khopoli
Dear Vedant,
If it is so, then, in my opinion candidate is not finding himself comfortable or may have some other problem. To avoid future complications from his such behaviour, you should accept is resignation and relieve him without attaching any condition of company policy.
After all employer has every right to waive off any condition of the appointment while considering the circumstances of the candidate. We cannot take work from a person against his wishes - this is the law of the land. HR is the best authority to decide & recommend such matters effectively on merits and circumstances.

Hi I have the same opinion as of Mr VK Gupta, in addition to this a small step ahead on humanitarian grounds, try to contact the parents of the said candidate and intimate them about his tendency., though you may avoid having future complications at least his parents will take all necessary precautions for him, after all he is a fresher and just came out of college (may be) or not so matured to understand the life and its importance.

It also maybe the case of an empty threat. But in case it is not, your inaction or forcing of work/penalty on the person may also push the candidate over the edge. And in that case you have an abatement of suicide case you have to fight. The "agreement" you refer to and want to enforce does look like a bond to me - though termed differently. In the 5 days of time he has spent with you, you couldn't have added a lot of value to his life and vice versa; and hence enforcing your agreement is too much of a risk for the company. The HR and Management may be warned that in case of an unfortunate end to this, life can indeed get extremely tough for all of you. If you take further punitive action against the youngster, the news will spread like fire among all new joinees and you may have a tough time recruiting here on.

Thanks for your reply to my post.
But we are training to all candidates and if they are not interested then they have to follow all the rules and regulations of the company.
They are just coming for training and after training they are applying to another company.
Their is any law for that suicide candidate?

From India, Khopoli
In a simple statement would like to say that no one can force anybody to work without their consent. First of all do let us know what is the job where the company require every employee to be trained, can't you get trained staff. If at all the job is such that you have a monopoly, you can take the help of apprentice and after that you can recruit them on your regular payroll.
From India, Ahmadabad
Mr. Vedant, Rules, regulations and laws are there to provide guidance for running an organisation. In real life, when you face a situation, some times, the rule book should be kept aside and wear the mask the person in front of you. Get behind his eye-balls or get into his shoes. Imagine yourself to be in his situation. Think for a while and how the problem can be solved using your mind and heart. In exceptional cases like this,, as my friends have pointed above, it will be easier to release him than facing the consequences. The employee will be more than happy at getting relieved like this than reading a book of rules in front of him. However, once he is relieved, sit with him and find out the reason. Also, tell him, how much of man-hours your company has lost on his recruitment, induction, appointment and also in identifying a replacement.
Best wishes
