Recently I've joined an IT company (in May 2015). At the time of my joining, my company provided me a joining letter on company's letter head. It contained all terms and norms including my job responsibilities. In that letter, it is mentioned that I can not leave this job till next 15 months and if I'll break the contract, I need to pay 1.5L to company. With this information, company asked me to submit a post dated cheque (the cheque date is Nov 2016 ). I submitted that cheque to company.
Company provided me a copy of joining letter and take my receiving (with signature) on another joining letter copy. In that joining letter, my probation period was 3 months.
After a month of joining, I'm feeling a big trouble with the work environment and with daily changing company policies. 2 Days ago my HR asked me to submit my original educational degree and mark sheets to company, and that I surely do not wish to submit.
As my joining time is just a month in this company, so it seems very difficult to stay in this company for next 1.2 years. Presently I've 2 job offers for the same post. Kindly suggest me the way so that I can leave this company.
Can I leave this company in my probation period. In my joining letter, it is mentioned only that company can terminate me without any notice? Can I leave it with or without notice. Also can company take any legal action if I stop my post dated cheque or close my account in that particular bank?
I received all the details in company letter head "titled as "Employment Agreement "". I did not signed any legal bond paper with the company.
