Hello everyone,

My case is that signed a bond with my Indian employer, before coming abroad. The bond suggests that I have to pay 5 lakhs if I leave the company at any time while my stay abroad.

Thereís this backend process here with which I have first resigned from the company and joined the same company as a contractor (direct employee of another firm) through a consultancy. Iím still associated to it but as an external employee now, not a direct one.

Itíd been approx. 5 years and some months that I stayed with them before resigning. In this amount of time, they must have already recovered whatever amount they have spent on my training, Visa, etc.

My question is, can this be a good argument for discussion on the negotiation, or do I still need to pay the full amount? Iíve already received legal notices (emails as well as paper, on my home address in India).

Iím ready to negotiate a reasonable amount but they are asking me to pay the full amount.

You alone know what the circumstances are, what is the nature of your employer and the details of the agreement signed. How exactly do you expect someone here to give you an answer?

In case of a negotiation, it is a matter between you and the other party. Its not a matter of law, in which case you wouldn't 'negotiate'. So again, what exact advice do you want from members of this forum?
