I am a software engineer in a company which is located in Hyderabad.
I've recently got an offer for another company. In the documents verification, they asked me to submit the original scanned copies. But my academic originals are in the present working company.
Actually, I had given 1 year commitment (as bond) to work in the company. Now the bond period is already completed, but they're forcing me to work another year. If not, they won't give my certificates back. I requested it many times.
As per company standards, I am ready to submit 2 months notice period, but they won't be considering.
If I proceed legally, I can get my certificates including the experience and relieving letters from that company, but will this become a problem if the new company asks my current employer for background verification?
