    Am I liable to face the legal proceedings after leaving the job?

    I am into collection department of a bank. As we all know that we face many FIRs from irate customers. I want to know that if any FIR is launched in my personal name, am I liable to attend the legal proceedings in court even after leaving the bank.

    yes, let me explain......
    Suppose you are in the job and being in the job if any customer file a FIR then you are supposed to attend legal proceedings. Now, suppose you have left the job and any customer file FIR against your personal name then it doesn't matter that you have left the job, you are strictly liable to face legal proceedings.
    But, don't worry if you were not involved in that collection process as you left the job then you will not be liable to any legal action.

    Yes, though the complaint is lodged to the worker of the bank, but still the complaint is personally against you. since you are accused of the customer complaint, you are bound to attend the legal proceedings in the court. There might be case that you bank do not accept your resignation till the case is closes. All this can impact your career. so instead of running from the situation, face the matter. If you are at fault , accept it and do the compensatory act. else if you art not , you need not worry.. but following law is a compulsion and you should.

    No, Friend you are not ligible to attend the legal proceeding after leaving the jobs because at that time you are the member of the bank now you are not.but if you have done wrong things at the time of your service which hamper the people rights than you are eligible to appear before the court of law.

    Hi guest, yes you are liable to attend the proceedings if any case is registered against you in the court. It doesn't matter whether you are in the job or left the job. You are liable only for the case if the matter occurs when you are in job. And if the matter is related to that of which occured after you have left the job then no one can held liable for any matter. You must not fear if you haven't done anything wrong/ illegal, just concentrate on the work of current job. Hope you understood.

    Hai friend,

    if the complaint is lodged against you while you were working in the

    bank then even after leaving the job you need to attend the legal

    proceedings. But if the complaint is lodged after you have left the job

    then you will not be liable and you need not attend any legal

    proceedings, but if the mistake has been made by you when you were

    working in the bank and now you have left the job them if the guilt is

    proved after you left the bank then also you are liable and you need to

    face the legal proceedings.

    Hope i have helped you in clearing your doubt.

    Thanking you.

    hello dear, ofcourse yes you have to attend legal proceedings if someone had lodged a FIR against you whether you are currently in the job or left the job.But don't worry if you are not involved in that collection process then you will not face any problem.But in case you are on that collection process then you might have to answer all the questions in court.

    Hello,asker you were a bank employee and you had left the job.Now your question whether you will be liable to face legal proceedings.

    yes you have to face legal proceedings if during your service period you did wrong and illegal works through which your previous employer are required to compensate than your employer is bound to lodge FIR against you even if your address were not known to the employer.

    Thank you,

    HI,
    If you are involved in the collection process and the customer launch a complaint.

    Then you might be in trouble.

    Otherwise you wont face any problem.

    But if the mistake has been made by you when you were working in the bank and now you have left the job.

    Then if the guilt is proved after you left the bank then also you are liable and you need to face the legal proceedings.



    HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL!!!!!
    GOOD LUCK!!

    you are within the job and being within the job if any client file a FIR then you're imagined to attend legal proceedings. Now, suppose you've got left the task and any client file FIR against your personal name then it does not matter that you just have left the task, you're strictly vulnerable to face legal proceedings.
    But, don't fret if you weren't concerned in this assortment method as you left the task then you may not be vulnerable to any proceedings.
    Yes, tho' the grievance is lodged to the employee of the bank, however still the grievance is in person against you. since you're suspect of the client grievance, you're sure to attend the legal proceedings within the court. There can be case that you just bank don't settle for your resignation until the case is closes. All this will impact your career. thus rather than running from the case, face the matter. If you're guilty , settle for it and do the offsetting act. else if you art not , you wish not worry.. however following law may be a compulsion and you must.
    affirmative you're vulnerable to attend the proceedings if any case is registered against you within the court. It does not matter whether or not you're within the job or left the task. you are liable just for the case if the matter happens once you are in job. And if the matter is expounded to it of that occurred once you've got left the task then nobody will control responsible for any matter. you want to not worry if you haven't done something wrong/ outlaw, simply focus on the work of current job.

    Hi friend,

    Generally the company is held responsible as a whole.
    But if you are the main culprit behind the crime,then you'll be asked to attend the court proceeding.

    FIR means first information report. It is a first hand report prepared by the police department when a complianant files a compliant against the person. It is only a report and it does not mean that you have done the offence. Then the police will investigate the compliant and if they thing that the compliant is genuine then they will file charge sheet. Even if you are charge sheeted you are not offender until the a court order as such. There is no much difference even if you are still in the job or let the job. There is no law that if a person leave the job in which he was charge sheeted as a official capacity a legal action cannot be continues.

    Even if you leave the job the legal proceedings will continue. But you can take a contention that you no longer responsible for the affairs of the company and you are not responsible since some other person was in the official capacity.

    Hello Friend,
    As a collecting agent there are some certain limitations which you need to follow while approaching a borrower for money.you should not bother him a lot to collect the money.you should not threaten him at all.
    you should not give him any prank calls or should not visit him regular basis and should not take any asset as possession without any proper authority.
    any violation in these the person can complain against you and take legal action,may be you were doing that as per your duty but anything which doesnot comes under your limitation you will be questioned on that and they may take action against you.
    Thank You
