Dear Sir,
I had been working for a company "X" for past few years. Due to work environment, I
resigned from my organisation. I had given a resignation letter the same day
(Sep 20). I had asked my employer to waive off my leave against my notice
period of 1 month and give me a releiving letter of oct 22th. In the mean time, i
had looked out for a job in a different organisation and they have placed me.
They have asked me for the releiving letter. Now the problem is, I went for the
interview after my resignation and i've not told my new company that i've
resigned. The new company has asked me to join on oct 24. The relieving letter
from my old company clearly mentions that the resignation date is sep 20 and
that my releiving date is Oct 22 . Will i face any problem during my submission of
my releiving letter? Kindly help me out in this.

Dear Rahul,
My advice to you is not to hide any facts from your next employer. Your current company is right where date of resignation is 20-Sep and reliving date is 22-Oct and they produced the actual letter.
Now you have two choices:
1. Take experience certificate where your DOJ and DOL is mentioned, and produce to your next employer instead of reliving letter. (If they do not insist on reliving letter, few organization accepts experience letter if current company is not giving reliving letter)
2. Explain your next employer about all facts and produced reliving letter. (Since you have kept them in dark, wait for their reaction and approach)

Hi Rahul,
According to the info you have provided, there doesnt seem to be any issues as long as you are joining them on the mentioned date and providing them with the relieving letter.
In case a question is raised when u submit the letter, do provide them with the desired information, else no need to panic.
Wish you all the best with the new job.

You can't ask for adjustment of Leave against the Notice period. Please remember that the purpose of asking an employee to give Notice (30/ 60/ 90 days: as per the policy of the company) is to find a suitable replacement. So far as leave balances are concerned, these can be paid off (as per the company policy) during Full & Final settlement.
Employees who leave without notice, merely because they have a good job offer at hand, have to consider themselves responsible for the punitive action taken by their previous company (as per their HR Policies).

Hi ,
Thanks to all of you for your replies !!
@Brain Light HR Solutions...I hide this fact from the new organization because i think its not good to tell in the interview that i have already resigned and then started looking out for new jobs.
@Nisha....I also expect the same that there should not be problem in joining.
@BK Bhatia...I am not leaving my current organization without serving the notice period. In fact i am serving the full notice period. The only concern is that I have not told the new organization that i have resigned early and then started looking out for new jobs.
My only concern is that my new job should not be cancelled due to this.

Hello Rahul Singh,

Like Nisha mentioned, I too don't see any problem--as long you join on the said date.

I think you are over-nervous for feeling 'My only concern is that my new job should not be cancelled due to this'. You don't even need to mention this aspect from your end--that is NOT to say that you have to 'hide' this fact. It's just that you don't need to focus too much on it. Even if it does come-up during your joining formalities, you can state it as a 'matter of fact', rather than being guilty or get into the 'justification' mode. Hope you get the point.

Coming to your remark '.........its not good to tell in the interview that i have already resigned and then started looking out for new jobs'--I am not sure what you mean by 'not good'. This isn't a good or bad issue at all. In a way, it could also indicate your confidence level of landing with a new job without much gap--IF you can handle this aspect confidently.

However, the reason why it's not suggested to resign BEFORE one has a job in-hand is this: Quite often, human nature being what it is, the mental frame-of-mind prevents the interviewee to negotiate well during the Interview, given the subtle pressure he/she has due to the current lack of a job--leading to undersell your self.

All the Best.
