Hope you can guide me in this matter. I resigned from my current company on March 10th 2011 and my last working was supposed to be June 20th 2011. Had to serve such a lenghty notice per company policy of 90 days.
The reason for my resignation was purely on personal grounds and my manager was very well aware of the reason and it was not because I got a job elsewhere.
Last week I spoke with my manager and told him that I would like to continue with my job and would like to withdraw my resignation. I was shocked when he told me this is the last thing you should do and it would be difficult to hold you back because of billing issues and would be difficult to re-instate billing for one headcount. Even my manager's manager echoed the same when I spoke with him.
If it was one month notice I would have never even resigned because if I had to then would have put down my papers on May 20th for my last working day to be on June 20th. I'm extremely disappointed to see how managers are making bad use of such a lenghty notice period of 90 days.
Per company HR policy I can withdraw my resignation even on the last working day. As far as I know as per law an employee can withdraw his resignation during notice period.
Can someone please suggest what are the options that I have left with me. Do I escalate the matter with Senior HR Manager of the company? I don't think that would help too much.
