I was hired by my ex-employer on January and I was deputed to Chennai to work as consultant at one of customer’s office. I worked them for 11 months, customer asked me to travel US couple of time during the project at their US subsidiary. Meanwhile US subsidiary offered me JOB which I accepted and then reassigned form my Ex-employer, I complete 1.5 months of notice and then my Ex- employer came to know that I am joining US subsidiary of customer which is not at all direct customer of them .
After that, company started threatening me that they will not relive me from my employment and I was force to abscond and travel to US.
No I received legal notice stating that I never reassigned, and as per non-compete agreement I cannot work for US organization. I never sign my offer letter and gave it back which was having these details about terms and condition. They are asking for 11.25Lac INR in one week as compensation else they will file case under section 420 for fraud and cheating.
Please guide me to proceed further.
