I joined a company in Noida in August-2016, now I realised that role is not as per my expectation and I have resigned and serving notice period.
They paid me notice period recovery and relocation amount from Hyd. to Noida.
Now as I have resigned, they are recovering these amounts paid to me from my F&F. While before joining and at the time of payment also, no one informed (verbally and written) to me that, if I left before 6 months then this amount will be recovered. They also do not have any policy for the same.
I asked the same to them but they are saying that recovery of notice period amount is industry practice and we will recover the same form F&F and recovery of relocation amount is as per Transfer Policy, while this policy is for their permanent employees and I am new joinee and nothing is mentioned in policy for new joinee.
They are holding my Nov-16 salary also to recovery all these amount form F&F and Nov-16 salary.
I request you, please suggest can an employer recover this without informing employee and can hold salary and can I approach labour officer regarding this recovery.
