Company has no right to retain your original certificates for indefinite period or permanently. Company may ask to show the originals and to handover the certified/attested/self attested copies.

You must ask to return the certificates in writing under acknowledgment.

Companies is keeping you under the thumb by not only getting a bond signed but also by keeping originals.

One should always consult elders in the family, experienced and competent well wishers, trained legal mind/lawer/law firm before taking such steps like signing a bond, depositing original certificates.

Yes.

Do you have an acknowledgment issued by the company towards receipt of your certificates? If you do not have send a gentle communication to return your certificates ( mention a list of all certificates) collected by Mr/Ms...........( mention name , designation, department, address  and date ) say within 7 days by redg/speed post in excellent condition.

"One should always consult elders in the family, experienced and competent well wishers, trained legal mind/lawyer/law firm before taking such steps like signing a bond, depositing original certificates."

It is indeed disappointing that none out of 50 consulted any one.

Now all of these 50 employees should demand in writing under acknowledgment, their original testimonials back in excellent condition.

If all 50 join and remain united it shall benefit each one.

Sanker:

All of the 50 employees be witness to each other and approach o/o Labor Commissioner.

It shall be good if all avail the services and expertise of a competent and experienced labor consultant/service lawyer and as per advice of your counsel lodge a police/criminal complaint.

Sarath,

You have posted that:

“In case the bonder has already undergone a course of study with employer.”

 

If the company has paid expenses of course, company can stake claim for fee/expense on course. Company may have to produce proof of actual expense/receipts to the satisfaction of employee/court.

“The employer will give adequate training for the bonder an all matters incidental to his employment, as found fit, at the expense of the employer.”

If this training pertains to enable the employee to run the machine, implement the strategy of the company, sell products of the company, to perform his job etc company may not succeed in its claim.

If the actual cost of the training is Rs.5000/ and this training has added to special skill/qualification, company should limit its claim to this amount.

Approach your lawyer/labor consultant, show the copy of your appointment letter, bond, HR policy, employee rule book, standing orders of the company, and give inputs in person contest the case. The bond may be in violation of standing orders.

Valuable advice of learned experts/members is sought.
