Dear Sir / Madam
I joined an MNC on 12th may 2011 in bangalore, 1st 2 days of which were orientation. Starting next week, I was deputed to Chennai office as a pert of training. I reported at chennai, but faced / came to know the following
- I was not provided a basic accomodation, even temporarily.
- was informed that the Deputation allowance which is supposed to be paid monthly, shall be paid after the deputation peiod.
- There was no particular training planned as such, and was put on bench.
- Came to know that they may extend or ask to permanently move to Chennai ( as they really did to other collegues later)
- Even, Facility in bangalore was shifted from Elecronic City to Jigani, which is very far to travel from my place of residence.
- deductions for transport came to notice only after joining.
Hence after coming bach to bangalore that weekend, i took a call to resign after discussion with family members. I tendered my resignation on 24th of may Via Email to the process HR at Chennai and in next 2 days dispached the ID card to the Chennai office.
I recived a call, for which i justified my decisions.
After few days, i recieved a letter stating of my un-authorised absence and asked me to join back. I promptly replied back to the concerened process HR ( not the one who sent the letter).
Again a letter popped up stating that i am being terminated as i have not reported to duty inspite of letter. I kept mum.
Now after 3 months, i have recieved a letter with f&F settlement details asking me pay them an amount of 25k.
Please note that i have neither recieved any money either as salary nor joining bonus from this company, instead i have spent enough for the travel, stay , food for my deputation in chennai.
The company policy in the joing letter states
"Notice Period/ Separation:
Your employment with the Company can also be terminated either by the Company or by you by giving
the other party three months advance notice. If the Company terminates the employment and decides
to relieve you before the completion of the notice period, the “Basic” component of the salary for the
balance notice period would be paid to you. If at your request, the Company agrees to relieve you before
serving the full notice period, you will be liable to pay the Company the “Basic” component of the salary
for the balance notice period. However, please note that accepting any such early relieving request would
be entirely at the discretion of the Company.
On termination of your employment for any reason, you shall comply with the Company’s termination
procedures, sign all documents and return all Company property. The Company will not be bound to pay
the dues, if any, till you have completed all the separation procedures"
Please let me know, how should i handle this situation.
Expecting your valuable guidance in this matter
