I am working in an IT firm (L&T Infotech) from October 2013.In February 2015 I signed a 15 month bond with my current employer for applying H1B Visa.As per the bond signed by me with Guarantor as my sister,If the VISA application is rejected I am no longer in Bond.I dont know the status of current VISA status in USCIS(United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) Portal as my current employer has not provided any reference number to me.
I have attached the bond .In the bond in clause 13 says if the H1B application is rejected I will no longer be in bond.But they are neither confirming I am in bond or my application is accepted.
I got a new offer from a better employer in June 2015 and they are ready to reimburse my bond amount of 2 lakhs .They communicated to me
"They will reimburse the bond breaking penalty amount on actuals to you once you joined our organization and submit the F&F document reflecting the aforementioned amount.
You need to claim the amount with all original documents from L&T InfoTech. Please treat this email as a confirmation from our side."
I have resigned from the services of L&T infotech on 15th June 2015 with 3 months notice.As per system my last working day is 11th September 2015.
L&T has not accepted my resignation yet .I have sent several notice to them saying I am ready to pay the bond if I am liable to pay.So please me provide me the details if my H1B application is accepted.
I sent mails to HR saying
" please provide me the details on how the bond amount has to be paid if there is a liability from my side as no recovery from salary started.
On payment of bond amount, I would also require return of original bond signed by me and my sister , Bond Cancellation letter & Bond Amount Receipt included in Full and Final Settlement if I am liable to pay the bond Amount."
My current employer not yet replied whether I am liable to pay or will I be relieved on 11th September 2015.
I am ready to pay the bond amount and ready to fulfill the contract.But I am not getting any response from My HR.
I wish to settle this issue amicably before my last working day.
I dont want to stuck in the current company unncessarily .So please advice me what I can do in this case.
