Please let me know what would be the notice period that is to be served by a resigned employee who\'s appointment letter does not contain the notice period clause.

Hello Srikanth,
This is surprising--NO....repeat NO....Appointment Letter misses such a crucial factor from it's contents.
Unless the HR concerned is absolutely inept in drafting the Appointment Letter format.
Can you give more details of the case/situation? That would enable the members of this Forum to suggest more constructively & realistically.
Are YOU the employee concerned OR from the HR dept of the company concerned?

It has come to me as a surprise when i heard that NP clause is not mentioned in AL. Appointment letter is a powerful tool by which HR can have control over the people but in your case , I feel it does not serve the purpose.
Frankly speaking, An employee is not required to serve notice period when the appointment letter does not talk about the same.

If NP is missing then you r not reqd. to serve NP. Its really surprising Good that only NP is missing.
I have come across AP not having Retirement age.
Check if your AP is including Retirement age if not then legally u can work in that company till life time.
Check retirement age and let us know.

Normally organisations stipulate either one month or three months.. which is the standard practice. The objective of Notice Period is to enable the organisation to look for replacement either internally or through external recruitment. Perhaps your organisation has no intention of replacing any employees who leave the organisation !

Well, it is so surprising as being an HR how someone can be so irresponsible for preparing an appointment letter. Anyways, as notice period is not mentioned in the appointment letter you are not suppose to serve the notice period but if the HR is not responsible person and have done the blunder then it does not mean you do the same way. So, being a responsible employee better if you properly hand over the task or complete your tasks at the level so that it can be hand over to the other person, complete the formalities in a positive manner before leaving the company.
