I am an employee of a private Bank(a very big name in market). I had availed maternity leave during my probabtion period.On completion of maternity leave, I communicated HR that I required extension of Maternity Leave for unavoidable circumstances
I was thereby, informed that leaves may not be extended.I had, further responded to the same e-mail seeking my other options as employee per Bank's policy.
Same was asked from my Branch Manager through a registered post dated 10 Dec 2010.
However, all my questions and communication was left open for 10 months, both by my branch as well as by Human Resource Department and no further communication was made on repercussions or consequences.
To My surprise, when I requested to resume my services on Sept 15 2011, I was told that my services have been terminated as per "Voluntary abandonment of Services" and no further communication/discussion will be entertained.
I want to seek advice in terms of :
Suitable labour law and clause
ANy response will be highly appreciated.
