There were 3 months of official notice period in my last company, and after 2 months of my resignation (I resigned self-willingly for better prospects), company HR called me one day suddenly and asked me to leave that day itself. Along with this, she mentioned that I need to buy out the rest of the notice and when asked to clarify she mentioned that I didn't have a choice.
Now in my final settlement document has come, after 45 days of separation, and I can see a hefty amount as buyout amount.
Is this even legal? I think it is not, but I don't know how to fight and whom to approach. If anyone willing to help, please leave a comment. I am working in Bangalore.
Note: They have withheld my experience certificate / relieving letter with them, and said it will be given only after clearing full and final settlement amount.
P.S.: This country really needs specific laws in place to put an end to these kinds of separation-related issues. These are getting very common day by day.
