Employee is hurting company standards even after FNF
I am Gurbir Singh and an IT startup in Gurgaon. We had an employee in our company (Proprietorship) on Business Development Profile. He joined our company in 16th February and worked till March mid. We have already given his all pending dues via online bank transfer and he also wrote an email to the company against his full and final settlement with the company. Email copy written by our employee is attached at the end of this note.
Now, employee has started hurting company standards by giving 1 start rate over Google, writing fraudulent notes against company over Google and other sites. Now he is threatening us and also calling us for more money and claiming that company has not paid him and he will file a case against company in labor court.
We are a startup in the industry and need assistance of all of you respectable lawyers to play a safe side. Which legal action should we take against that employee? Please guide us with your expert advice.
