This is a query regarding my resignation.
I am a doctor working in a corporate hospital.
Due to very personal reasons i had to suddenly resign. All through my working tenure at this hospital i have put in more than required hours of work and there are absolutely no complaints about my work and all were actually happy with my work. Now in my appointment letter they have a one month notice clause for resignation or one month pay. As such i have drawn salary upto the end of last month and am still working for them right now. i have tended my resignation just a day ago. What i want to know from you experts is.. if i stop going to work from say tomorrow, what are the penalties if any that i can face? As such i do not have any of their property with me or any things that i need to handover back to them. Their only reason for insisting i complete the one month period is that they are right now busy. But i Have my personal problems. There are no arrears i need to recieve from them except the pay from the first of this month. I do not have any patients directly under me, as i take care of patients who are admitted under my two seniors. So as such i do not have to handover any patients/patients' details. I am ready to forego the salary for the last 18 days, so.... can i stop going to work?

Hello doc123,
Looks like your Posting is incomplete.
Could you complete it by using the 'Edit' option, so that all will get the complete picture before giving any suggestions?
Prima-facie, you MAY have to give the hospital one-month salary.
Also, since you are a doctor, wouldn't there be any patients whom you would have to entrust to other doctors [basically handing-over] before you move from here?

Well I agree with TS and Anita that you must have complete your post.

“have drawn salary upto the end of last month “ and “resignation just a day ago” giving a clear picture that you were just waiting for your salary amount and afterward you resigned.

Second, you have resigned in a mid of month and in that case you are able to get the salary amount of this tenure including your EPC and other Leave encashment as you said that you just received your salary amount of last month and if you will never complete your notice period or going to take your leave without getting prior permission of your Boss/Supervisor, can create problem for you towards your salary amount as I have mentioned above.

Third, It is really appreciating that you have worked with them very sincerely and they are also happy with your work and performance, I wud suggest you to speak to your Supervisor/Boss for your early release and believe me if you do that then can release you with immediate effect by the deduction of short notice amount as per the Notice Period clause of Appointment Letter). And I don’t think that you’ll object on this deduction in case of your request for Early Release.

But to leave/ discontinuing your employment without informing them, will be called DODGING and I don’t think you wanna bear at any cost that will not be a good thing from CAREER prospective too.

Finally, I wanna say that you don’t need to worry so much about it and just need to speak to your Boss, tell him/her your problem and ask for your early release which is the best solution.

I agree with everyone’s comment but prima-facie, there is something else going on behind-the-scenes that is not being foreclosed in this event.

I am a doctor in a Delhi Govt. hospital. I have submitted my resignation and have also completed my notice period of three months. But my boss is not relieving me. I am in a way suffocating there and wants to be relieved soon. If I inform my boss that I will not be coming from tomorrow, what action he can take against me.
Please reply at the earlilest, if possible, through a mail.
With regards

Dear Doc,
If you have completed your notice period , then relieving becomes your right.
Just handover all the assets of department, patient details , their case histories , check with the HR department if you have any amount due and pay that. Even after this, if you do not get relieving letter, you can stop going and file a complaint with Labor officer of your area.

Hello Mr Sharma,
Well if you have resigned and your resignation letter been accepted by your Boss/Senior and also if you have completed the notice period as per the T&Cs of your appointment/employment letter, you just need to inform him as well as to your HR & Administration department to get exit clearance.
Second, just to inform seniors that you will not come from the next day is not enough because Also you have handover the work and everything under your possession officially first such as case files, reports and other which is really important and I believe you also understand the importance of these things.
They can take any action if found any lacks in this but not if youív done by the procedure
Your Exit Clearance is really important and must not forget to have copies of all communication with them as well as the accepted copy of resignation, service certificate and F&F statement, so that, you can join your new employer easily and peacefully.

Hello Dr. Sharma,
Since you are working a Govt Hospital, I am sure you would be aware of the Service Rules governing such Establishments--which go much beyond those applying to Corporate Entities.
As far as I know about Govt Rules, the Immediate Reporting person IS NOT the one relieving any govt employee. Usually it's the Controlling Department--which surely would take the clearance of the immediate Reporting person as an input for No-Dues, etc.
I think you have NOT given ALL the aspects of your case--pl give ALL the details for the members to give realistic & practical suggestions.
All the Best.
