One of my friends was working with a reputed MNC bank. After almost 2 years of service, the bank terminated him without any reason.He filed a writ petiotion in the High Court challenging the termination order and simultaneously also filed a case at the Labour Court.The ALC could not get his job back or provide compensation to the employee , but managed to persuade the bank officials to provide a relieving letter to the employee , on the condition that the employee submits a back dated letter of resignation to the company.Since almost 10 months had elapsed without an employment, my friend accepted the relieving letter in hope that atleast he has some chance to seek employment on the basis of a clean service certificate.The question here is has the employee lost the right to challenge the original order of termination issued by the bank ??? Isnt this a case of arm twisting tactics by the company inorder to force employees to submission so that they get away with unfair practices ??? My friend was the only bread winner of the family with 3 dependants. Does the court expect that the aggrieved employee has no right to employment till his case is decided in the court of law ??? If the employee doesnot earn for him and his family , there will be a question of survival, let alone fight for justice !!!
Please give your valuable comments on this very important case.
