Dear HR Mates,
We have an employee who has resigned over the mail stating cannot work due to personal reason and want immediate release. Post which the employee has not reported. As for the Salary part, the employee has smartly dropped in the mail the day salary was credited (1st of the month) and discontinued thereafter.
He/She has clear terms of serving 1 month notice period mentioned in the appointment letter. Tried talking and understanding the so-called personal problem, but the employee denied revealing anything under the pretext of it being uncomfortable to confront. Additionally, also by denying to report back and serve the notice period.
My query here is, what legal action can we take as employer here? Apart from holding back the employee's F&F settlements, letter.
