Hi .. I have an issue here..
When I joined the company my notice period was 1 month and later they changed my designation and increased the notice period to 2 months. But the thing is there was no variation in the pay. and apart from that they didn't take my signature for the 2 months of notice period. So now I have document stating to server for 1 month and the designation change paper aswell. but nowhere neither me nor the company has the document saying to serve 2months of notice with my valid signature. but now I am asked to serve for 2 months. what can be done? any suggestions?

If you have not signed anywhere that you are agreeable for 2 months notice period, the company has to accept your one month notice period. Merely changing your designation and fixing 2 months notice period is not good practice. Did you accept the change in designation etc., through any paper signed by you? If, there is no such things, your contract agreement with the company is for your original appointment letter and its conditions only.

Dear friend
u need not to worry about this .Write a note with a copy of appointment letter and condition that you are only liable to pay one month notice pay which can be adjusted fro full and final pay.
no need to worry if you have not signed any changed policy

According to the facts given by you, it's an organizational mistake. Infcat the organization cant take any action. You can easily contend the organization has done the change without your consent.
If you have not signed any document which states 2 months of notice period, then the company cannot force you to pay for 2 months or serve for 2 months of notice period. Check your Company policy or Employee Manual or Handbook in which the notice period is stated. If it states 1 month of notice period, write to your employer attaching a copy of the appointment letter that your notice period is only 1 month and you will serve or pay as per the terms of your appointment letter.
No action can be taken by the company.

Dear All Can any one say is there any labor law which say that employer cannot change the notice period without the consent of employees?
It is unfair labour practice. If this type of practice is being practiced by any organization , beside bad name in the market it can be challanged in the court of law.
Hi All
No organisation can change the notice period without the approval of employee. that is true and sound gud also but first you have to check the company policy. May be as per company policy you are falling in such designation whose notice period may be 2 months.................
for example : - executive, asstt. manager notice period 1 month
managers, sr. managers, and above notice period 2 months.
First check with company policies, if that is not there then no one can ask you to serve two months notice without any signatures on yours.
