Hi community, Recently a month back there was a compliance issue raised against me for using a personal device for work.
Though it was for few hours and I myself informed the team on call that Iím using a personal device as I wasnít aware it was against compliance.
The security team of the organization checked my laptop for any client-related information, they didnít find any as there wasnít.
Still, the issue is not closed and Iím very worried about my career, I gave them in writing on stamp paper also that I donít have any client-related documents or anything.

I also told HR that I accept my mistake and Iíve designed for the same and now Iím serving my notice period.
The HR told me that they still need to follow the process and resignation doesnít count. Can anyone help me? Like what can happen next?

Dear member,

You are paying a price for your freewheelingness. While working in a formal organisation, it is important to keep oneself apprised of the rules and regulations. However, this did not happen in your case. You discovered the use of personal laptops is prohibited at work when it was pointed out by the IT security cell of your company. To prove your righteousness or to vouch for not transferring the company's sensitive information, it appears that you have given an affidavit too. However, the company continues to look at you suspiciously. Your resignation from the job, in fact, might have bolstered their suspicion. Why did you choose to resign from the job?

By now, the company should have ordered the domestic enquiry to investigate whether information leakage has taken place. However, why the company has not done it is not understood. Anyway, the direction of the decision of the management cannot be assessed. If the company terminates your services, what remains to be seen is whether they follow the due process of law. If the principles of natural justice are not followed by your company, then not doing so could only be your defence. Therefore, let us wait and watch how things unfold in future and pray veritas vincit.

Hello Dinesh,
Thanks for your reply.

I thought even if there is slight chance of getting terminated, itíll impact my career ahead. So to avoid that and get proper experience and relieving letter, I offered to resign.
