But I havent received any letter yet , just a threateining call ..
I got hold of one lawyer on call (will be meeting personally latter as appointment is next month bcoz he is v busy),He mentioned few things which made sense that they will not mention it as penalty (in that case they will loose) but they will say the cost occured to the company .

This term looks very vague as we know that there was no cost involved for any sort of training ,
Does any one have idea on this ??


Well, it goes according to the contract if it is a penalty or not. In any case, even cost occurred to the company they would have to justify - and you can dispute that, obviously.

Another issue from same employer /LOC not cancelled

Postby lalitpct » Mon, 11 Aug 2014 2:30 pm

Hi All,

Thanks for the help
Previous employer didnt cancelled my LOC (which I left/was terminated 6 month back) and hence
new company unable to request for new LOC.
I asked MOM and they said contact ur previous employer to cancel it.
The issue is it was termination of the employment and not sure what shall I ask previous employer

You should contact your previous employer and ask them to cancel your LoC, as MoM has directed you.

previously MOM had a process where employers fail to cancel LOC

essentially you write a letter to the employrer informing them to cancel the LOC, and copy MOM

after 30 days MOM considers due notice given / process followed and will proceed to cancel the LOC

the 30 days is to ensure the employers doesn't switch the story an say the employee did a runner.

Send it via email and make sure you keep the sent message for MOM. Also sent it registered mail or via courier so you know that they received it.

maybe they want to serve you notice ;) ;)

there are some vengeful bosses out there but it also means what did you do to invoke their wrath

if the new employer cant wait too bad then ...

getting an LOC is a privilege ...

That was my immediate thought too. Which would put you in a catch-22, as any address you give (yours, a friends, etc) might then be considered a valid address for the purpose of serving Notice.
