As part of disciplinary proceedings, to close the file HR might have served those letters. Even if the employee signed service agreement /bond/training agreement there will not be any legality as he was not part of the Company not even one day. However if any security cheques issued, need to handle it carefully.

blue-pantherThanks V.M.Lakshminarayanan, can u please explain about security cheques? is is about the blank cheques?
As part of service agreement/training agreement companies use to collect security cheques undated but signed favouring the company with a condition to deposit the cheque in the bank in case of violation of the terms and conditions by the employee before the completion of bond period. Cheques if deposited and bounced Companies can file criminal case for cheque bounce which needs to be handled carefully. However even if cheque submitted I don't think employer will deposit as there was not service period involved and the employee left immediately after joining.

umakanthan53When the appointee has not at all joined the organization, how the employer can assume disciplinary control over him and issue termination orders?
Better the poster simply ignores the legal notice or send a suitable reply setting forth that the organization has no locus standi to issue such a notice.
