What is ASM?
Is the reply of HR in writing?
Hope you will take this post positively!
The persons that are not active and partcipate in forums/students/unions activities and update themselves are ill informed and do not develop skills that are later required to handle unscruplous employers and their attornies in HR, Admin, Legal, personnel cells, and such employees are harassed.
Do not remain entangled with HR personnel.
HR personnel is, like you, just another employee in the establishment and is either ill informed or simply acting as per published/unwritten directions of his masters.
HR personnel and even for that matter empliyer, is neither a deity, god or god like, parent, elder brother, megistrate, judge, arbitrator etc and in such situation has become an opponent and if you handle him/her skillfully you can resolve your matter by your skills; persuasion, persistence, reasoning, negotiating etc.........................................OR you will land up in litigation/disputes.
It has already posted in this thread to whom and how to submit FormI and what should be written in covering letter.
If you are unable to handle the matter on your own you may seek help from elders in the family, competent and experienced well wishers, employee's/trade union leaders, Labor Law consultant etc..........................and show them this thread and many threads with similar queries at LCI;
