Retention of Passport by a company
« on: February 01, 2016, 10:03:26 PM »
I want to know that can a company keep the Passport of the Individual forcefully?
I was offered a job in a company as technical executive but they asked me to do a course on my expense. After that due to family problems I could not join that company. I have not signed any contract documents with the company nor have signed for any visa documents. Now the company is saying that they had applied for my visa and I have to pay the charges of visa to get my passport back. Please advice

Dear Sir,

You may file a police complaint against  the company for illegally detaining your passport. Under no provision or terms of the contract of employment they can retain your passport.
