End of Employment Contract Dispute with a UK based Concern

A UK based employer had initially extended an employment offer in October 2015. However subsequent to this writer's background verification the organization failed to respond to a few clarifications and hence the writer wanted to void the contract. Stung by an ego hurt, the organization filed a case with Chennai High Court alleging facts and fabrications.

Our legal counsel too examined the issue at depth and finally resolved the issue voiding the employment contracts with the employer. A few things to note were:

  • The organization does not have a defined scrum meeting schedule and expects employees to appear for the meeting whenever the CEO is free. Sometimes at 9.30 PM
  • Wage payment delayed. And on questioning it they silently disappeared blocking Whatsapp also.
I am quite curious and am eager to see when such employers would realize the true value of employees instead of treating them as commodities.
