I wanted some legal help with respect to my employment. . I was recruited in 2016 April. I was provided an email (by the recruiting manager) which promised me a position refitment into a higher designation. In that email he also mentioned that HR is in loop and they will do the needful in 2017 Jan cycle of promotions. The HR called me,before I joined and told me that this will be done but they cannot give anything on company letterhead.
In 2017 they did not provide me the relevant position refitment and I was released of that group. I started working for another group in 2017. Till now I have been working with this new group only. Recently I took up this case again with my current group and HR again. But they are now saying that this should have been done in 2017 and nothing can be done now.
I need to understand whether there is a legal recourse to all of these. Please note that the only formal evidence that I have is the email that was sent to me during my recruitment by recruiting manager.
If there is a possibility of filing a case I need to also understand the implications of this action.What steps can employer take against me?
Please let me know.
