I have gone through one of my friend's case and request for all the learned friends to share their views;
Rakesh was working in a company since 4 years and decided to change the job for career enhancement, He got the offer from different company and discussed with management the one of his senior member has said verbally that if you resign from the company then he will make sure that your career will be in trouble.
Rakesh has not replied anything on phone and later after 2 days he has given the resignation with intention to serve one month notice period as per appointment letter.
But company has written back one mail to him that as per the appointment letter you can not join into other similar industry for next 6 months and if you provide us the document where you are going and if we satisfied then only we can leave you otherwise presently we can not accept your resignation.
from second day, company has stopped him to enter into office and verbally stated that you don't have to serve the notice period. Presently he doesn't have any resignation acceptance, relieving letter and Full and Final Payment also not released.
Rakesh has not gone to office after that and after one month assuming as notice period he has joined into different company;
My Query are;
a) Can Rakesh go for Manhani case, as it was done to destroy his career and confidence.
b) What legal action can be taken from Employer if they want to do so.
c) What legal action can be taken by Rakesh if he wants to do so.
