Would request you to help me with the following issue:
Post exporing another opporutnity and receiving the offer from the new firm i resigned from my current employment on 07/03/07. We have a policy of serving 1 month's notice and we can't adjust our leaves against the same. Hence, my relieving date would be 07/04/07.
On request, my employer agreed to relieve me earlier i.e. 31/03/07, but on a condition that i compensate them for the one week that i would not be serving them for (1st to 7th April). This, they say, will be deducted from my March Salary! Simply put... i worked from 1st to 7th March as an employee, thereafter i put in my papers and will be serving my notice till 31st March... which ideally means i should receive my one month's salary... But my employer says they will deduct the one week's (1st week of April) compenstaion from my March salary.
Is this fair?? how do i resolve this issue?

As you said that your company has policy of one month notice period. In My every company follows this Policy.
You have mentioned that after Exploring the new job you have resigned the job but you didnt mention the Date of joining in New company.
You have resigned on 7/3/07 and your manager agreed to releave you on 31st then you can put a request to the manger to settle your salary till 31st only.

Hi, dear.
Many companies using the one month notice law when the staff is resigning. In your case, is also the same. You have to furnish one month notice or otherwise you have to compensate the company for the variance.
So if you really got the better offer from the new company, why cant you pay the one week variance? Sacrify the little to ge the more!

If the notice period is clearly specified in your appointment letter, then the conditions too would be mentioned. Please go through your appointment letter for better clarity.
The clause is one month notice or compensation in lieu thereof.
Since you have a shortfall of one week, you will be required to compensate the company for the shortfall.
Its perfectly legal. Do not complicate things, leave amicably, you never know when you would require help from your current company in future. If you leave on a positive note, rest assured the company will be willing to extend all co-operation.

Hi Team Member,
The query that u have mentioned is a simple one. Taking into consideration the clause in your appointment letter you need to serve notice period of one month.That means that you need to spend this much time with company to download your responsibilty,train soemone and make the process smooth. in case your employer has agreed on releiving you in lesser time its on youtr mutual understamdnin.
He can wave off you notice period if you have done a good job. But there is no legal liabilty. So in this he has given you grace period of one week not in monetary term. And you will get your settlemetn after the deduction in notice period.
As you have mentioed thats this is a grat opputtuntiy you can manage with this situation.
Thanks and Regards

Dear Nams,
I am not able to understand your grievance.
You should have worked with the Company till 7/4 to complete your notice period. Your employer agreed to relieve you 7 days in advance subject to the condition that you compensate the employer for these 7 days. If you are paid salary till 31/3 without any deduction then where is the compensation for 7 days? Please answer this question and you will get your answer.
By the way, your notice period gets over on 6/4 and not on 7/4. One month notice means 1st to 31st or 30th and not 1st to 1st. So at the most you can save one day salary.

Hi Nams,
It is absolutely fair if it is clearly mentioned in your appointment letter. It is called the "shortfall of notice". Against the one week shortfall of the notice the company may deduct one week salary. As you put your papers on 07 March you have to serve till 07th April as per one month notice. If u leave the organisation on 31 March, your one week salary is justified to be deducted.
