I had signed an employment contract on company letter head. Where it stated that if i did not join the organisation on xx date then will have to pay them money

1 week ago i already informed that i wont be able to join due to family emergency health issues

Two days ago they send me that it is unfortunate that i cant join on joining date so finance team will send me a demand notice to pay the amount in a week

Now waht should i do

Also there is a probation period of three months where it says that company can terminate me without any notice period

Just i thought since probabion works both ways, may be i can join and apply leave or resign and will be out of any dues since i joined as well. As i resigned on probation? I may be wrong

Pleaese help.

I would never prefer to work with a company who intends to get money from employees.
Better to search a company whose intention is very clear.
Abhee to kaam shuru nai kiya, aur company aapko notice bhej raha hai k paisa do……..

Join kar liyaa to kabhee b bol saktee hai – NIL DOWN

Just ignore
Unless it is a registered legal contract in front of a magistrate, koi kuch nahi ukhad sakta
Even for registered contracts, hearing goes on for decades
Just ignore emails and call, add them to spam
Will stop automatically after a month

Ask yourself whether you are serious about joining this work or not. IF you want to join, talk to their HR team and indicate a specific date when you can join. If you do not intend to join at all, then do not react. These so called contracts are difficult to enforce in the court of law.
However, I do not find fault with the company which had invested time and money in a recruitment process, finalised a candidate and the candidate as also accepted the offer but then finally fail to join. In such cases, the organisation definitely have a right to recover the losses suffered in the failed recruitment process.

Better to work at tea stall, instead of working with such employer. Attitude of employer is very clear in your case…

Secondly whats the point of working with people who already planning to give you a notice at initial level of relations..

Try to find bettter company – may be at lower package.

Spend proper time @ portals like naukri, monster, indiatimesjobs etc……….

Thanks for the invitation.
I had lengthy discussion via pm for the past few days.
Suggested him to create post to get other dimers views also.
These kind of issues would have been faced by many employees, hence requesting the dimers to comment,how you face this challenge.

Any contract, either it is oral Or written , is VALID infront of the court.
So, you would suggest him to run around courts.

He is supposed to work for someone , not running around courts.
Any criminal case or civil case is supposed to be disclosed to for some of the entities such as passport/visa/financial matters etc.

No bro, I and my friends have cases running ourselves
Non registered contact is just like a piece of paper
And no organisation is gonna run after you for petty sums of money, where you are on the genuine side

Non notarized agreements are invalid I think. They don’t hold any value.

Where are they invalid ? Invalid in front of the courts?

@karanoshan
Since you mentioned, you have faced hence asking this question.
Did you or your friends notarize the agreements?

According to @ F7-Dimer-Primer , all agreements have to be notarized.

Explain him your situation to make him aware of it.

OP, probation works in both ways. Any one (either employer or employee) can terminate the employment,
However, there will be one more clause, employee will have to pay up the notice period money to the employer. However, employer can also terminate and pay you the money with TERMINATION letter.
Most of the people would not like to receive termination letter for many other reasons.

Notarized also holds no value, it can hold some time in sessions courts,
however to prove anything or get anything out of the case the contract should be registered in court.
