Hi all,

My questions stems from the perspective of a Job change at onsite from an organization that had sent me onsite sometime back. The organization makes everybody sign some bonds et al in India before one can go onsite.

I changed job here at onsite after my project was over at onsite and did not go back offshore. After more than 6 months of my job change, I got a certified mail (which I fooishly accepted) from an attorney saying that my job change caused losses to the organization and they are prepared to take legal action. However, if you want to avoid that, call the attorney for a settlement.

Just wanted to know if someone else has had a similar experience and what should be the next steps. Or should I just ignore this and then not accet any other mails.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Did you break the bond in any way ? I think they usually ask you to come back to offshore and contribute something before they can relieve you. Did you stay till the end of your designated period in the project at onsite ?

Yes. I have a letter saying that my project is over at onsite. However, I was supposed to go offshore, which I did not.

Just wanted to know if anyone knows the ramifications of this notice that I recevied from the attorney.

In the U.S.A there is no question of a bond. No one can do anything to you.The company is trying to frighten you by paying off the settlement.Maybe in India they might ask you to pay off the settlement.

You could probably get in touch with a lawyer from India to find out what can happen. Many big Indian companies do this thing. You can also try contacting some of the people who have left the Indian companies like TCS,Wipro,Patni etc.

Thanks Karthick. I thought that this was the case. I tried contacting people from some companies. Could not really get anyone to answer this.

I just wanted to findout if anyone has or knows of someone's experience like this. Will the organization start legal proceedings? I think there should not be much of a case, but there would be the hassle of legalities etc which I am trying to avoid.

I am trying to get in touch with a lawyer in India regardng the bond that I signed before coming onsite more than 3 yrs back.

I don't see aythig in Karthick's posting which is prohibited. There is no rule against mentioning company names, only giving out personal opinions on them and getting into discussions about them. He merely suggested someone get in contact with former employees from some of the larger companies in India.

You need to contact similar fate people. What is the name of the company? You may send me a PM as I am in same boat

There is a discussion forum in Orkut named "TCS bond breaking".

Not sure what you were expecting. When it comes to legal matters the best advice is often no advice. As a general rule I tell people to consult with a lawyer. No one here is really qualified to tell you what to do outside that.

Thanks for the response, Rob.

I did consult a lawyer....however, I was just hoping if someone with a similar experience would chip in with his/her 2 cents.

Cheers.
