Hi,
If an employee abscond from duty without any information please follow the disciplinary process and then finally issue termination letter for absconding from duty which will be the maximum action employer can initiate.
However wherever employee abscond from duty after indulging in misappropriation of funds /theft employer has the right to lodge police complaint as well.
Thanks V.M. Lakshminarayanan for your inputs.
hi,
Send a registered letter asking to report for duty asap asking else will take necessary disciplinary action including the suspension.
Good luck
DISCLAIMER: ABSCONDING IS NOT TO BE DONE AND THIS POST IN NO WAY IS HELPING YOU TO TAKE ACTIONS ACCORDINGLY. PLEASE TREAT THIS ONLY AS SOURCE OF INFORMATION AND I AM NOT LIABLE FOR ANY ACTIONS TAKEN HEREWITH.
HR cannot sue you or file a court case until and unless you have stolen some information/data or intellectual property which is not to be shared in public domain (remember you signed a contract/bond)
Actions can be taken as below:
Step 1- HR will try to reach out to you on your phone numbers (cell, landline, family members phone no., any emergency contacts you have shared during joining). This follow up can be done for various durations- days to weeks (normally not more than 2 weeks). Along with this various emails will be sent to you on your personal mail ID. HR will also talk to your friends in office, colleagues etc. (investigation!), you will become a center of gossip in office for few days :P
Step 2- In case HR is unable to catch hold of you through any of the above, you will be declared as absconding in company records and your employment will be terminated with immediate effect.
Step 3- You will not be provided with any relieving letter/mail, your salary from the date of absconding (depending on where it falls in pay cycle) will not be processed, no full & final settlement will be provided. All your access will be cancelled (including removal of access on your laptop from company server, VPN etc., in case you have taken the laptop with you).
Step 4- In case company is using tools like SAP etc, they can share the same information with other companies and you can be blacklisted in market. HR's do share information across industry specially in MNC's. Next company can easily find out your past actions accordingly until and unless you are getting into your own business of course!
P.S.- ABSCONDING is highly UNETHICAL and should be avoided, as it causes a lot of pain to the HR team and company who have invested and trusted in you.
