I joined a company in 28 Dec 2009, and sent resignation email on 3rd Feb 2010. After that, I didn't collect my relieving letter, and did not complete leaving formalities. As, I was unwell.
Now, on 29th May, they sent me a registered mail, and asking me to pay 32,000 Rs, for full and final amounnt. And, saying that if I will not pay in 15 days, they will take legal steps.
My ask is that, can I defend my case. Or, what if I send them a reply describing my situation.
Note, I joined my next company in mar. I was not in any company during feb.
What companies do in such cases? Can they file a case against me in court?
