If you terminate a workmen without following the above procedure, you will be forced to face legal hurdles. As a Industrial tribunal in Chennai recently said that the IT employee is also a workman under Industrial Disputes act.

Thanks for the advise. We shall follow the show case notice procedure. But I hope it is not illegal to issue notices or termination letter to employee under notice period.
thanks and regards

There is no bar to terminate an employee already on notice period,provided evidence is there and matter is serious enough to merit termination or dismissal.
One should be very certain of the seriousness of the offence before resorting to termination.

Remain fair and just. Keep the trail focussed only on the corrective measures.
Wish you all the best!

The employee was advised to do Rand D and procure results for a new project in software. The company pulled him for not sharing enough data findings with management, under which he put his resignation. Now we found out that he was trying to transfer data out of office, we do have some proofs for it. Is it serious that we can terminate him and stop his dues?
We do not want to fall into legal complication.
In future can we create some separate bond with employees to safe guard company confidential data? As of now we have the same mentioned in the appointment letter.
thanks and regards JD

I presume you have digital evidence of such transfer and can be proved as done by the employee.
Whatever details you written in last post may not be sufficient to sustain charge of stealing/transferring data
Best course is let him go if it becomes legal battle,you need specific data trail,and cyber trail to get him punished.
Pay him his FnF and close the matter but draw lessons from this.
