What are the actions an employer can take in case of a notice period not being served if it is mentioned in the offer letter and they have it signed from the employee that either a 3 month notice period needs to be served or pay the salary in lieu of?

My employer is asking me to either serve a negotiated notice period of one month (in offer letter- 3 months) Or else to pay a certain amount to them. Otherwise they will take legal actions and consider ot a case of absconding when I have handed over the assets already?

Dear Sir, Nothing to bother. No employer has to time and patience to approach the Courts to recover such amounts. Lest, it is it’s the question of reputation. Be calm and quiet and enjoy the atmosphere in the new company.
