My scenario is ' a startup company hired a 5+ yrs IT experienced software engineer based on skills, experience & ability. Now, on the joining day itself engaged her on project & she started to work on the project with regular team meeting, project call,sending regular project status update mail to customer then within 2 and half weeks on the joining month itself, the MD & a manager informed the employee that suddenly , client has changed his mind & he 's facing issue on budget so he does not want to continue with the project that the new employee has done so far. Also, the management informed the employee to immediately submit all the work that the employee did , to other project member who is working there for more than 6 months.
Another incident happened here is after 10 days of joining in this company , the manager started to behave very rude with the female employee & while she sent a daily work update mail to client regarding some work issue, the manager sent a very harsh , abusive mail to her on midnight of the same day , in response to that, she informed about the whole incident to the MD itself. The MD promised a lot of false words in response to that on the same week itself.
Now, She's getting fear to lose this job as the company is a startup in Pune & even this company fired a lot of resources earlier like this way. '
So, now the questions are:
1. If she's fired or laid-off or terminated with a sick cause from the company (mentioning false issue of client budget bla bla etc) , what sorts of compensations she can claim for this loss since she left the good job of MNC of Bangalore to join in this startup of Pune & due to this eccentric nature of this company?
2. Can the employee file up a illegal termination case on employer to illegally terminate from project / may be from organisation itself on joining month itself while they took interviews for long time after serving 2 months of NP in earlier organisation she joined in this startup, because that time itself they didn't mention anything about company's budget issue.
