Please help me with the following situation, I am totally in a mess. The company I worked from home
for a year was a small company, having only 4 employees(geographically in different locations)
including the owner. The company assisted Ph.D and Engineering students in their projects and in
return took fees from them, also, they were encouraging research on various topics and to write
research papers on the same. I resigned this company on 10 Oct 2011, as I did not get any raise as
promised at the time of appointment. I put a condition to pay out first my salary and after that I
will return the company's laptop. However, he had written the following in the instruction mail for
clearing dues, "It’s up to you to return Laptop and keys of office either before getting payment or
after getting payment. Once you decide the giving it back, let me know. I will tell you how to do
Now, the owner cum HR-executive has written this incidence in my experience certificate as follows:
"During her tenure with us, we found her to be sincere and hardworking. However, after resignation,
she had put a condition to company to pay out first her salary and after that she returned the
Laptop of company. This incidence was not compliance with companies rule. But, seeing her demand
over laptop return, company had to make the payment of her salary before scheduled salary day."
I sent a apology e-mail to him, but still he did not reply. What to do in this situation??? I am
stuck with a negative remarks experience certificate...
