Left a company in one day, now they are asking to pay amount
I have joined a company and have done all the formalities for joining. After my joining i left for home and on the same day i got an opportunity which was more satisfying. So i have mailed the HR of my first company that i won't be continuing with the job.
After few days i started getting reminders to join the company again and it was written that i am on unauthorized leave.
After 2 notices i have finally received a termination letter stating to pay 2 months salary to the company as i have not served the notice period.
Now i have got a mail for full and final settlement and they are asking for Rs. 1,73,000/-.
I have not even started to work in that company also have not attended any training as i was in that company for just 5 Hours.
Do i need to pay the amount?? Or is there a legal issue??
