Dear jobseekers Bonds are illegal – say no to bonds

If you have given interviews in Ahmedabad / other cities, IT companies ask you to sign bond. When you ask them what is bond they will tell you it is for company safety and your 1 or 2 years commitment. Beware, it really means that they will not pay your 2 months salary and file case to recover money against you if you leave companies before bond period / they throw you out. Also IT companies can give you 2-3 people’s work to save money. And now you are stuck.

First thing Bond is illegal in any manner and not valid until it favors both the parties equally and can not enforced to any one in any situation for any benefits in terms of serving months/years for employment.

This saturday on 02/12/2017 I received call from Ms Ruchika Pandey [radixweb.com]. she told me that radixweb can provide 90000 INR less/year than my expectation. and I continued with the interview process on the same day. And then I was interviewed by Brijen Brahmbhatt who asked me to sign 2 years bond and provide salary that is 180000 INR less/year then my expectation. I had to say no to him and then I send them this email. But they blacklisted my email address and so I had to send them this email with another email address.

Hi this is vishvendra Singh here, had Final round Interview on 05/12/2017 conducted by Mr Brijen Brahmbhatt.
I want to inform you that I was not informed of 2 years bond in all the communication occurred between me and Ms ruchika HR from radixweb. When I received call from Ms Ruchika, on telling my requirement of * Lacs/Anum I was informed the  salary that will be privided by radixwebis * Lacs/Anum. So keeping that in mind and discussing I appeared for the first round of interview on 02/12/2017.
Despite rain and bad weather In today’s Second/Final interview on 05/12/2017 conducted by Mr Brahmbhatt I was asked to sign bond of 2 years for the job on * INR/month salary instead of * INR/month as discussed with Ms Ruchika over phone call. So this is the clear confusion in radixweb team and in email please write clearly that how much salary you can provide and details of the bond.
I want to ask radixweb to apologize for troubles caused to me and make sure that such stunts should not be played with any one else in future.
In Reply I received a call telling that i am trying to scare him and they are well established company and he is not feared of me. [   🙂 funny] . He also said Ms Ruchika is no one and he and the company takes the decision.

Dear Vishvendra,

First of all, I would like to inform that we are always clear in all the communications we do with a candidate.

Secondly, after careful consideration of your skills and experience, I came up with best possible amount that we can go ahead with in your case.

Understanding that you were negotiable enough on opportunity shared we took your candidature ahead. However since you are not open on it we respect your decision and appreciate your openness on sharing your feedback.

All the best for your future endeavours.

Thanks,

Brijen Brahmbhatt

In the above mail I expected sorry word some where but you can see the ego of this buddy. So I can conclude that they were trying to cheat me in hope that I will settle for less salary. This is all because people encouraged them to fool job seekers. These companies will never accept that they have bond policy over phone call or email. But you approach them personally they will force you to sign saying that everybody is signing, u should have no problem in bond system.
Actually only those company ask for bond which having issues with employees as they don’t know how to manage and establish happy adapting environment.
My Advice to these companies is please establish better environment instead of forcing people to sign bond. Learn to make relations employees they will stay longer with you coz everybody loves respect. Employee is not mere a resource but a person and feel bad when treated like one. Companies I worked with are much better. But this post is not about promotion or demotion but to make the people aware.
And remember scared & unhealthy cow always gives unhealthy milk. I don’t want to be one of them.
Buddies dont get trapped, stay away from such companies, find better companies there are so many companies. And Dont settle for less money, always ask for the amount you deserve.
