Jet Airways v/s Jan Peter Ravi Karnik
Permalink Closed

What basically happened in this case was, 9W trained this pilot to fly the 737, at that time, only 9W had introduced the 737-300,400 and only the 737-200 was being flown in india at the time. As a result, the pilots had to be trained. anyways, 9W spent something like 15 lacs on training this pilot and signed a contract with him stipulating that he would work for 9W for 7 years and side by side 9W would recover the 15 Lacs from his salary. He however quit and left for S2. Hence, 9W got pissed and filed a suit against him claiming that he cannot work for any other airline for the 7 years and that he must pay back to money they spent on his training.

Case note below:

Service conditions of service Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 and Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 defendant (pilot) employed by plaintiff (9W) and agreed to serve company for period of 7 years defendant confirmed in service on 06.02.1998 by letter dated 04.12.1999 defendant resigned from services with immediate effect plaintiff sought order of permanent injunction restraining defendant from taking up or continuing any employment until 11.10.2005 with any other airlines terms and conditions of service as contained in appointment orders have been altered to detriment of defendant with retrospective effect irreparable loss would be caused to defendant in case he was compelled to remain idle non-grant of injunction would not cause any irreparable loss to plaintiff balance of convenience lies in favour defendant plaintiff failed to show prima facie any legal or equitable right for grant of injunction.

I think 9W is correct if the Pilot has signed for the same.Training costs are high.Although a bond of 7 years is steep too.



Think of the Brighter Side !!!
