richa kumari1107Dear Seniors,
One of the employee in my organization has left the job breaching service bond of 18 months, without any prior information and without serving notice period. In his resignation letter he had mentioned that he shall pay the the service bond recovery once he get the notice at his permanent address. Shall we send the notice at his permanent address or shall communicate via mail? Kindly, suggest further steps to be taken from HR's end.
Please find below his details in reference to my query:-
Date of resignation- 7th Sep'18

nathraoWhat is the notice period during Probation?
What is the reason for service bond?
Are you imparting any special training etc to employee?
What is the exit policy during probation?
He probably will not pay anything even if he has asked you to send notice to his house.
Main question is whether company has any basis to initiate recovery action?

As correctly said by Mr. Natharao have you given special training to the associate or spent an extra amount after his recruitment. Ideally in india no bonded employees are allowed you may have an option to recover the money that you may have spent for his training activities if it is laid down in the contract. Secondly the employee who had left was on probation and why the notice period term is 2 month ? as per the act maximum notice period can be of 30 days only thus I really doubt if the employee will be paying the amount to the organisation.
