Hi Sir/Madam, need one suggestion. One of my friend was working for one organization since last 4 years and 10 months. He was deployed on client site. Now client has decided to discontinue all contractual services. When this message was sent to his parent organization, parent organization communicated to deployed employees that since they do not have further projects/ clients, so they will be relieved after given date of client from parent organization also(lay-off). My friend requested to his client organization and they have agreed to offer him on roll job but now parent organization is not giving NOC by saying that client should clear all previous payment, 2 months salary of employee and replacement of that employee and most important they should come to his office and request. There is an agreement that no employee can be hired by client within 1 year of leaving the parent organization. We want to go legally in this case. Is there any clause or rule which can help?

Clearing of F& F is responsibility of parent organization and can't be dependent on payment from client. He can send legal notice to employer to release his F&F and any other documents, if any taken by him. Employer also cant restrict employment of any person, but it needs to be checked with agreement terms whether it is Non Competition Agreement or not. .

NOC from the present employer may not be necessary if your employment with the client takes place after your present employer relieves you from his service. Hence you may request the client company to appoint you after the contract with your parent company expires..
