This is hari from Chennai. I worked for a private MNC in chennai. I had wokred in this company for 4 years. During my tenure, I was sent to Europe for training for a period of 2 weeks. Before going abroad,they made me to sign a 20 Rupees bond paper , for amount of 2 Lakhs. In case i leave the company in 2 years, I need to pay 2 Lakhs.
IS IT LEGAL TO ISSUE SUCH BONDS TO WORKERS ?
Since I got a new job, I resigned offically within one year of training. I had a notice period of 3 months , During the last 2 months of the notice period, My salary, other allowance, expense LTA was on hold for amount of 1.6 lakhs. Now my company is not issuing the reliving letter, Since i did not pay full amount.
IS IT LEGAL WHAT THEY ARE DOING ? cAN THEY BLOCK MY SALARY WITHOUT INTIMATION ?
PLEASE ADVISE, HOW TO PROCEED.
