I am seeking your valuable feedback on below matters on priority..
I am working for one of the products software and service company in Mumbai since 2nd Jan, 2007. I work as a Manager and
reports to Business Units Head. We had multiple departments within company (around 5) out which 2 were moved to some other
company in the month of July, 2013. This happened since company had financial issue and were not able to roll out sufficient
money in the market. As per my understanding who bought these 2 departments had agreed to pay outstanding dues to employees
and in turn transfer all respective business and services to them and it was agreed mutually. My department did not transfer
but we were given an impression by management people inckuding BU Head stating that very soon we will be transferred too. So
we continued working for new company benefits and all new orders was routed. Its been 6 months now but still company does not
have financial stability and I have not received salary since November, 2013. Also what I observed that there has been
disputes between management team regarding servicing client from other company. I have nothing to do with all these; I just
followed instruction received from BU Head and Director of department and assuming that we would be transfer soon.
Now I have resinged from my position on 18th December, 2013 (30 days notice period as per policy). All employees resigned
around this date from my department (Few were getting offered from that other company and others are having opportunity from
external world). Our company management is not accpeting resignaion of any of the employee. Instead on 20th December, 2013
(2nd days after my resignation in evening), they collected all company assets given to me for official use (Internet Data
Card, Laptop with data and accessories). Since I am worried about my releiving letter and resignation acceptance, I kept
quite and continued to come office serving my notice period till 17th January, 2014.
On Friday (3rd January, 2014) we got an email from HR Head with cc to management team mentioning that they are in process of
enquiring our department operations for last 2 years including proposals made, PO received, services rendered, etc. on behalf
of own / other company. They have given us the deadline till 7th January, 2014 in response.
I am not comfortable after reading this mail. I do not want to be part of this mess which is going on. I just followed what I
was asked to do by my superiors. I could feel the kind losses I will having in near furture by not having 2 months salary,
LTA, Gratuity, Relieving and experience letter, etc. Also I do not have any other job in my hand at this moment. I am looking
to get my job secure in other company where other 2 departments got transferred because they they are aware of this situation
in company nad ready to hire me without relieving letter and also ready to compensate larger amount of losses which occured
Kindly help me with following queries and your expert comments to get rid out this situation: -
1. Can employer put an enquiry on an employee after hsi resignation from company? I have already handed over all assets
2. What happens if I do not respond to their mail dated 3rd January enquiring about our operations? I am afraid that if I put
anything on email / verbally, they will strt investigating more and drag me into the matters. I do not want to waste my time
3. Can I pu my immediate resignation (by 6th January or latest by 7th January) stating non-receipt of salary from 2 months
and relieve my self immediately without their acceptance?
4. Can I get my relieving letter from company if I resign immediately?
5. Can I claim my salaries and other dues from company?
6. Can company take any legal action on me if I resign immediately and do not respond to their query?
Please suggest your expert comment and suggestion to resolve this matter at the earliest.
