I have worked with a company small company (06 headcount) 3 years back. After getting better opportunity I decided to move out of that company. The notice period at that small company was 1 month. But, my prospective employer wanted me to join earlier. Hence, I decided to buy out the notice period and move out. Even after buying out the notice period owner and HR of of the company was not ready to relieve me. Finally, after a discussion the matter got settled and proper relieving letter was issued to me.
Now, I have offer from another company. But in Background check owner and HR of that small company is giving negative/false feedback.
Even after possessing all proper documents from previous employer (Offer letter, Reliving letter signed and stamped by the owner, The resignation sent to the company and company's reply on that, Salary Slips) my prospective employer is taking objection solely based on the Background Check (BG). Could you please tell what are the possible way outs from labor law perspective?
