I am working in a Private Limited Company established in Kolkata. It is categorised under ITES/BPO/KPO. As a permanent employee, I am entitled to receive Durga Puja Bonus. So far the informations are roaming with the employees of our concern, it is expected that we may receive it within this month (within 28th of September, 2016).
Now, I have planned to leave this company due to some unavoidable circumstances. I am also ready to serve a notice period to the management on this regard. The notice period will be of One Month (30 Days).
My question is, If I submit my resignation letter as soon as I receive the Bonus this month with notice period of 30 days, can our company ask me to refund the Bonus amount that I would receive? If so, is it Legal? Please advice me on this regard. I am waiting to place my resignation just for this confusion. Please suggest as soon as possible. Thanks & Regards.
