This is the hot news now. The Indian BPO's are insisting that any employee hopping jobs should pay for its training costs and then only can they leave. If they do not oblige by it the employees have to face legal action. There are other restrictions also like not giving experience certificate, not providing reliving letter etc etc.
I think this is absurd. No company is doing charity by providing training to its recruits. They are looking at growth and ensuring that every single penny can be squeezed from each of the employees for whom they are providing training. Does the employee ask the recruiting company to pay him back all the profit made via him when he is leaving? It is the prerogative of each employee to leave and chose his own destination depending on his thoughts. At the same time, a company need not recruit anyone who has been a consistent job hopper. This is my take and I am sure this not go very well with the HR people. May be they should seriously think why would someone want to leave them. May be it is money, so what...if someone else is willing to provide more money for the same work, why should he not leave?
