I joined company X in India, and just after couple of weeks, due to their client's acquisition this company told everyone of us in the team to look for jobs. Though notice period is 2 months, I requested them to release me earlier which they did. I have email confirmation from HR that, I was released from duties with date.
In the meantime, I got offer from another company and I joined. Yesterday, manager and HR from company X called me and forcing me to attend client calls, and do tasks assigned by client. It is obvious that they have not informed client that I quit. For the sake of billing, they are forcing me to work until March-14 end (their contract with client is until end of March only).
I honestly told them that, since I have not heard from them for 3 weeks, I joined another company so I cannot work for their client even part time. Also, my present company agreement states that, I should not engage in any other work etc.
Now, I am scared that this company X may cause trouble to me legally? What could happen, I lost so much money by relocating to their location and I didn't get salary for the 2 weeks I worked for them.
