Will I get experience letter if I break a bond with company?


Legally speaking, any bond that any organisation signs with an employee stands null and void as per the Constitution of India.

The company might stop your relieving letter at the most for this 2 months tenure which I feel has little or no value even if you get that.

If you still want the experience letter, you can approach your lawyer and send the organisation a legal notice. This should take care of it.

Go ahead any drop in your resignation.

There are no legal consequences to not following bond signed with a company. The most that a company can do is file a money suit seeking the money spent on training you, in which case you can contest the matter…it is unlikely any company will follow this route. They cannot prevent you from joining any other company.

Professionally, however, other companies may view your short stint at this company to be suspect, as it doesn’t convey a good impression as a prospective employee…however, this might not be an insurmountable hurdle. It all depends on you.

What is a Valid Employment Bond?
The agreement has to be signed by both the parties at their free consent.
The conditions mentioned in the bond have to be reasonable and reflect the expenditure of the company on the Employee.
The conditions imposed on the bond must be satisfactory to safeguard the interest of the employer.
Every bond will stand valid only when it is executed on a stamp paper of an appropriate value and enforceable.
Ensure that there is training material that will stand as evidence and proof in the court stating that the employee was given sufficient training.
The agreement must have a non-competition clause and confidentiality clause to ensure the companyÕs trade secrets are protected and secure.

Reference: Breach of contract and its remedies:

Under Section 73 of Indian Contract Act 1872, ÒWhen a contract is broken, the party who suffers from the breach of contract is entitled to receive from the party who has broken the contract, compensation for any or damaged caused to him, which naturally arose in the normal course of things from the breach or which the parties knew when they made the contract to be likely to result from the breach of it.Ó
