Hello friends,

I worked for a MNC in India and when I got married last year I had to break a bond of six months of which I served 4 months and joined my husband in USA.I am supposed to pay a huge amount which my husband denies to pay me in return. I was on bench for 4 months so if I had joined any project I would have served only two months.MNC started sending me letters regrading this,until one day they sent me a legal notice.I could not collect my Provident fund and neither last month payslip nor Form 16.Now ill begin searching for jobs in india.Will I be asked about these documents .

I fell its unethical not pay this company at the same time I cannot fight with husband.

Someone please suggest.

Thanks in advance

I can't say about your domestic issue but you could go back to the company and finish your 2 months, but that said, I don' think such bonds are supposed to be legal. You could also send them a legal notice for benching you for 4 months and messing with your career or something. Threaten to have an FIR lodged against them.

Normally companies do not go after people who break bonds and you can give any reason for breaking a bond like medical. But I would recommend take a advice of legal adviser, because they are expert of their field.

What does this have to do with your husband ? If you want to pay the money you do. Otherwise you dont.

I can't say about your domestic issue but you could go back to the company and finish your 2 months


I really doubt if someone would take her back considering she decided to leave without notice

Now ill begin searching for jobs in india.Will I be asked about these documents .


Companies will not ask about a form 16. They will however enquire about previous experience. As Arvind points out and to my knowledge, bonded labour is indeed illegal in india. However I would think twice before I engage in a legal tussle with a company hired lawyer. You need to take into consideration if it is worth your time. You might also want to keep in mind that a lawyer may claim that further damages need to be paid with interest. So it might not be a case of whether you want to pay the money or not. Consult with a lawyer. That would be the best source for any information

I know a person who left without notice and working at senior level in reputed organization. Although it is rare but it can happen.

Consult a lawyer.
As far as I know, unless the company has spent money on training you over something, the bond doesn't stand. Also form 16 is effectively a government document, which declares your advance tax payments. I do not think the company can hold it back.

If you have not burnt your bridges while leaving the company, I would recommend sitting down with them and trying to reach an amicable solution. Legal actions never helped anybody, especially in India.

I know it is none of my business and it is a personal matter for you, but I do not really understand the point of your husband paying the money. I was under the impression that the Indian woman of today was liberated and self sufficient, especially in financial matters.

Thanks everybody for the reply .

I did resign the company two months prior thinking that they will relieve after 2 months notice period after putting my Resignation.They relieved me within three days (as I was on bench) ,they have also given me the relieving letter and experience letter which is one good thing.I dont intend to join the same company in future

The bond was I have to be with this company for 6 months after my return from onsite of 6months.

And Manish Godbole,Thanks for advise.

I would not like to spend my money because I was forced to leave the company before I completed my bond period just to join my husband in USA on H4 visa and do nothing here .I left the company thinking my husband would pay for these damages .The amount is Rs 135000,additionally I lost my PF Rs 36000 and 17 days salary as well.

I don't not see any thing for which you need to worry. When you resigned you gave them enough time to serve the agreed period. If they relieved you because they don't have work for you, it is their problem. If you think it may become problem for your new job just inform your new employer before they start your background check and they should understand your situation.

Good luck.
