Let me reply you point to point based on my knowkedge. But please contact a local lawyer before proceeding/ taking any action.
1) Recently I have resigned from a contract type job which i have served for 3 weeks. I have resigned as per policy by giving 1 month notice. Company has terminated my employment immediately after 2 days abruptly and did not allow me to serve a notice period. They have not made my fnf settlement.----------------------------First of all you were on a contract type job that means your payroll is with the third party who has hired you on contract basis for this company. So please speak to that third party hiring agency with whom your payroll is. Also, as per my knowledge this notice period / terms conditions fully are always with a regular employee of any employer. Please check whether contract employee also has to go through this equal tenure of notice period same as regular employee. Kindly go through completely word by word your contract and offer letter with hiring agency.
2) I still have their clients Laptop. I am sure that company is not going to pay me anything for my short tenure however it is a mnetory loss for me as i have informed joining date to my future employer accordingly considering Notice period. Company is asking to courier Laptop back to client however I am sure that after I return Laptop, my topic will be closed and none of my emails will be answered. I have replied to their Laptop demand by saying that I have no personal interest in client Laptop and it is ready to dispatch provided my payment is done. Company is threatening me that client will take legal action and blacklist me as well. What should I do? -----------------------------------------------------------------Again, the laptop is of client. So if you know when you work for a client there are some VPN concept which is virtual private network which is very secure thing. So when your employee id is created for that client , you always sign some terms condition with client as well where you tick check box of i agree... Please read that completely. It mostly says that you will not disclose anything and you will return all assets on leaving. So, whatever fight you are having is not with your client, for them you will anytime be declared absconding and your second employer will also has to be answerable for this conduct and further this second employer may take action against you if nothing is there in offer letter.
I would suggest talk to your hiring agency, your losses, and morever 3 weeks monetory loss would not be much until/unless you are earning more than 10 lacks per annum. Definetly dont forget to get the releiving /work experience letter/ payslips. Final option is after verification if everything is in your favour send a notice to legal/hr department with a local lawyer mentioning your losses with a copy of a offer letter of terms and to initate a legal case if they dont abide to their terms and aggrement, But at any case please return the lapltop and dont risk your future carrer.
