If you are not completing your notice period and not doing a proper hand over, you are not entitled to a relieving letter.
It is up to the employer to voluntarily reduce your notice period. You can not demand for it to be done. You will have to go without a relieving letter and without an experience certificate probably.
Also, you can get your leaves adjusted against the notice period and get some relaxation in the time duration of the same.
Make sure you keep all your documents including your appointment letter, salary slips, resignation letter and its acceptance for further reference. If you have all these documents they can serve as your experience in your past organization in case you do not get the necessary documents.
Hope this helps :)
If you have not served the full notice period then the employer, as per the employment conditions, can deduct some money from your quit claim settlement and give you the balance amount.
BUT, remember you need to fullfil all the exit formalities like charge handing over, handing over of the assets in your possession.
Apart from all the above, based on my personal experience, I would say that this is a small world, you may meet the same set of people again in your career. So, always exit with a GOOD NOTE.
Frankly, you won't like this--but nevertheless, I think you need to know & realize another side of your action also.
Didn't you know that the Notice period in Wipro is 2 months & that there's no Buy-out option? Since you have ~2 yrs exp, I think I CAN make a comfortable assumption that you DO KNOW about it. Then why in the first place did you opt for a new job that needed you to join in lesser timeframe? Did you assume that you wouldn't have any problem?
I think you have 4 options:
1] Complete the NP here & then get relieved--in the process you may loose this opportunity. So you may need to prepare for a Back-up--meaning attending more interviews, which COULD be tough, since you may not be granted any leaves during the NP.
2] Like Bijay suggested, try to convince the management for early exit.
3] Request the new company for more time--if not 2 months, try for the MAX possible time-window. You can then see if Wipro can relieve you within that timeframe.
4] Forget about this Offer & stay back in Wipro until you get another Offer where this issue is taken care of.
Byomjeet has a good point when he says: I would say that this is a small world, you may meet the same set of people again in your career. So, always exit with a GOOD NOTE.
All the Best.
In my situation I have already made it clear to my org that I wont be able to serve my full notice period.
I have committed to my future company that I will join them in 20 days.
Also as I have a large amount of leave pending I hope to adjust the same against my notice. After adjustment the actual notice period I will not be serving is just 9 working days.
A replacement has been assigned to me and the knowledge transfer has begun. The same will be complete by the time I leave.
As work is not getting affected I am trying to speak to my HR to get a relieving letter.
My manager though will not be entering a relieving date in the system and hence my no dues process will not be triggered.
So I will be forced to handover company assets on my own before I leave.
I am quite disappointed by how rigid the system is in letting an employee go. My employment contract says that the company has a right to release the employee the moment he puts in his resignation without even compensating him for the 2 months notice period. Overall the contract seems one-sided and it seems to be unfair to the employee. Just my thoughts.
