Absconding employee is the one who left his/her work in the field or office without any proper intimation to the higher officials. There is a legal clause present in the employee contract saying that if he/she is absent to the work for a certain amount of time and does not go through the proper termination process then the employer has the right for not issuing the compensation and termination documents like relieving letter. Absconding is the case that unprofessionally separates the employee from an organization without any proper procedure. The absconding employee gets blacklisted by the company/organization.
The absconding letter is a show cause notice written to those who willingly/unwillingly left his/her duties for a certain amount to come and explain their reasons for absconding from work and to face the consequences properly. First, the employer tries to get contact with employee personal mobile number, sends an e-mail to his personal mail id, tries to get in touch with his/her relatives/friends and tries to reach him/her using their permanent residential address. If all these cases are failed then the absconding letter is issued.
