Talking about the legality of such kinds of bonds in India, these kinds of bonds are null and void, according to section 27 of the Indian Contract Act. Any terms and conditions of an agreement which directly or indirectly compel the employee to serve the employer or puts a restriction on them joining the competitor or other employer are not valid under the Indian law. The employee has right to resign from the employment even if he has agreed in the employment bond to serve the employer for a specific period of term agreement which directly or indirectly compels the employee to serve the employer or puts a restriction on them joining the competitor or another employer is not valid under the Indian law. Moreover, according to section 19(1)(g) of the Indian constitution, every citizen has the freedom to practise any trade, profession or trade. However, in some of the cases, judgement is being given in the favour of employees they are able to prove this thing that their company has suffered a lot of loss because of your resignation. I would further suggest that you should approach a good employment lawyer and should file a complaint of harassment in labour courts.Read More
