There is some catch in the contract you have signed with the company. The relevant clause says that service is terminable with three months notice or three months pay in lieu of notice by either party but at the sole discretion of the company.The company , it seems, is invoking this clause to relieve the employee earller than the notice period and contends that since the employee has not served the notice period, he has to pay the notice pay and at the same time it denies the liability to pay 3 months pay under " the sole discretion" clause if you demand by it by contending that it amounts to termination since he relieved you earlier though you wanted to servce the notice period. Though the calsue is discriminatory but nevertheless mischievous and not palin.
