Hi Nandita,
1. No you are not bound to give any notice period as you have not yet signed any formal appointment letter or agreement.
2. For the same reason, you may not get any salary for these 20 days. Again its purely on ethical grounds if your current employer gives it you.They should give your 20 days salary but they are not bound to do so, more over as you will leave without giving any notice period, chances of not getting the salary is higher.
My opinion is if you feel the new oppurtunity is much better (atleast it seems so to me), opt for it.

I agree to the fact that labour is free market BUT its governed by rules and regulations. If it wasnt then probably every job would have been contractual and not permanent. Employement contracts though having limited liability are binding and recognised by the court of law. All i am asking is stick to letter / agreement one has signed and all falls in place. Any violation of the written / signed word / agreement can only cause unnnecessary legal issues which could have been avoided in the first place.
At a personal level you can very well refute any agreements and walk away to bear the consequences, but try to restrain yourself while giving advices to others especially juniors.

Hi Nandita
I am Neeru , I am working as HR Manager.
Nandita since the bond/ agreement is not signed by you or the other party , the legal obligations are zero on both. that means that you can leave and join other company any time u like as you have not signed the contract . similarly the people u are working force are free to not give you salary for 2 weeks, means its entirely their discretion to give the salary or not.
Nandita 2 weeks salary doesnt matter when it comes to work under a abusive boss.I think u shud join the other company as I think it wud do gud to you
Take care

Dear friend
As your present job is worst,you should go for New Job.
No need to give any notice period as no legal document signed.
Just tell them that due to some problem you are not continuing .
If they pay for two weeks thats good if not its what they are.
Congratulations:) you have got better job.
Its is always better for all of us to know about work culture of company,
so that we dont make wrong choice.

Hi Nandita,
First of all you must be in probation period and that means one day notice from either side.
If you have offer in hand what are you wating for? anyway you are on contract in present company
lasty they are bound to pay you salry and if they try any mischief just tell them that you will go to Asst. Comm of Labour and lodge a complaint of unfair labour practices against them.
However you submit letter of resignation and get the acknowlwedgement. Clearly state that you are in probation and as per law you are giving them one day notice and they should settel you account immeidately.

Hi Nanditha,
if u r really happy with ur new offer then just quit the current organisation because i think job satisfaction is most important than salary. if the current organisation pays u for whatever period u worked then its well and good otherwise just forget abt it.
u can also check with the new company, if they can give u 15 days time to join then u can complete 1month in the current organisation, take ur salary, inform them abt ur resignation, give them a genuine reason for resignation and then leave.
