Does anyone have any experience of resigning TCS while in USA without any legal issues or problems recently.A freind of mine is wants to join a consultant bt is scared to do so because of TCS policies.

Can anyone advise on this.How many days of notice will suffice.

TCS can't do anything legally. While on USA, you're on a H1 visa. As long as another company/contractor is willing to sponsor your visa, TCS can't harm the employee.
BTW, you won't be the first person to tread this path! So relax.

The new employer is not applying for a new visa.HE is transferring TCS visa itself. Hence he was more worried. Also, he does not know how many days notice to give. Because as per TCS you need to give 3 months notice. No employer will wait for 3 months.

If you are on a H1-B visa, you do not need a new visa. Your visa needs to be transferred to the new company which implies that the new company needs to apply for the visa so that the person can work legally. This visa will not be subject to the yearly quota. As far as your friend's contract with TCS goes, it will depend on how and where it was worded. The contract may not be valid in USA. 3 Months is too long a time for moving out of the company and unless TCS has provided your friend with specialized training and has invested heavily on him, it will be tough for TCS to go after him.

Hello Rancher Friends!

I am new to this site & this forum too; have been a very good silent reader; having done SCJP/SCWCD too with help of the posts!!

To this topic; I have a question:

I am currently in "Tech Lead" position in US. Given this role (being only tech lead in team of 15 people); if i plan to exit; do you think my employer would try to bother me? They haven't as such "invested heavily" but the project I am currently working is in high visibility of the top management of the client I am working for.

Please advise; would it be ok to provide a notice period to my employer's management and offer them 15 days of appropriate knowledge transition; or it would be risky giving them the opportunity to threaten me giving me the ticket back to India!

My Visa has expired but I am having H1-Petition valid opto mid of 2008.
