    Guidance for recovery of Joining Bonus

    Hello

    2 and half years back I have joined one MNC company and as per the offer letter I will be getting joining bonus after completion of 24 months with this company and now I have completed 24 months with the company and have received my joining bonus after following up with HR and finance team.After two months I received one email from HR that "There is a mention of a Joining bonus which has been erroneously put in for you." and they are going to recover all the bonus given to me in seven staggered equal installments.

    I have offer letter signed by Associate Leader-Recruitment.

    So please anyone can help me on this issue.

    Re: Guidance for recovery of Joining Bonus

    No employer has a right to recover the bonus already given to the employees. In the appoint letter since they have promised to give you the bonus then How can they recover from them.

    According to me you should right a reply letter to the HR department and request them not to recover the bonus amount given you. Still they are recovering you can directly approach the labour officer and give a written compliant. But this compliant has to be given as your last chance. At first you should convince them not to recover the amount.
