I have read lot of thread and really want to appriciate advice given in this forum.This is also provide lot of legal knowledge.
I need some help and clarification in my scenario. I accepted an offer with an IT organisation and did not sign any Service Agreement or Contract. I joined the organisation on 14th dec 2015 and resigned on 4th Jan 2016 i.e I served less than one month. My reason to leave the organisation is I was recruited for a post and job that doesnot suits my profile Also there wa no assignment is given to me. Then I decided to resign and had a discussion with my manager and HR on 02nd Jan 2016 and submitted a formal resignation in company's exit portal on 4th Jan 2016. I served for one more month in notice period on the request of manager and received salary for January month also.I left company after submitting my Icard as suggested by my manager but suddenly after 9 months,I got legal notice by company's advocate for demanding Rs. 2,32,000/- for not serving notice period.As per offer letter of company below is terms for termination.
Notice For Termination:
"The written notice required for termination of employment will be two months notice by either party. You would be required to serve the stipulated notice period and early release would be at the sole discretion of the Management. In case you leave your employment without giving requisite notice, no relieving letter will be issued and settlement of dues will be at the sole discretion of the Management. However, under organisations disciplinary procedure your service can be terminated without any notice period."
Unfortunately, I have no copy of resignation acceptance as this was submitted in the company exit management system but has bank entries to prove salary credited for january.
Please suggest and help as how to proceed with this.
Appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance.
