I was working in a school before a week 5 days I resigned and I gave reason that my mother_in_law is not well I told I will pay 1 months salary at first Chairman agreed now he says I will relieve u on one condition u must not work anywhere this year.
Can Chairman threaten a lady like that. If I work can he take action.

He cannot say so. This is not a valid clause. If there was no contract between you and school while joining. Or if there is a contract but there is no minimum employment period, then he cannot impose any restrictions on you. Please specify what are the clauses of the contract if there are any.
He cannot impose restrictions that are not there in the contract itself. So you are not bound by any such limitations. See the website below for more.

Clause is that we are supposed to give a month notice or 1month salary which I m drawing I m ready to pay 1months salary.He says he will be behind me and has very good contacts in the city so if I work anywhere I will be in trouble.
From India, Bengaluru
I have not signed any bond but signed in the appointment letter which the clause says above I have written.

Dear Ms Jyothi,
The Chairman is not convinced with your reasons for leaving the organization. He thinks that you are leaving them to join elsewhere. The solution is that either convince him showing various documents relating to your mother- in- law's illness or leave the dept. taking risk. If the case relates to Bengaluru, the city is so big that nobody has capacity to keep a surveillance on one person in such a big city.

Continuance of paid employment under the same employer or elsewhere is a matter of personal choice as well as discretion of the employee concerned. Therefore, restrictions, if any imposed by the employer in order to reduce attrition by way of notice or payment of notice salary in lieu thereof, facilitate finding a suitable substitute and to recover the cost of training, if any incurred in the event of the trained employee's failure to fulfill the stipulated minimum post-training service should be reasonable as well as justifiable. When these conditions are fulfilled by the out-going employee with the due approval of the employer, formally or informally the employer can not impose fresh conditions like the ones mentioned in the posts. Paid employment can not be converted into a system of slavery suiting the whims and fancies of any arrogant employer.

The clause is written that I cannot go for interview or join new job without any information which is subjected to law.
What should I do for my living I am not interested to work in the previous institution as workload is more
If I work in the same city will I be in trouble.

From India, Bengaluru
Such a clause, even if written and accepted by you earlier, is illegal. It is violative of article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution of India. So, don’t bother about it unnecessarily.

I think chairmen is just trying to threaten you for not leaving the job. as you also paid him one month salary now a days no one is that much free to do like this there is so many unemployed person in the nation so don,t be worry & be relax first take care of your mother n law and then go ahead.
From India, Ahmedabad
The chairman’s threats amount to a criminal offense. You can take the stand that such repeated threats place you in a critical position with no option than to set the law in motion.
