Dear seniors

I worked for a company and then sent an email to my supervisor stating my resignation and provided one month notice period. My supervisor interacted with me and asked me to leave immediately stating that the company no longer has any work for me. The supervisor informed me that a reply to the resignation mail shall be sent to me. However, immediately after leaving, the password of my official e mail Id has been changed and now the supervisor tells me that I have not given a hard copy of resignation and hence the question of acceptance does not arise. Also, supervisor tells me that I went on leave without informing her for a week. I had actually taken approval for the leave through the official email ID and I no longer have access for the same. I have only worked for the company for a month and could not tolerate the torture. Actually two more employees resigned in the same month as they were thoroughly disappointed with the employer. They did not give notice period and left their one month salary with the employer as they did not want to tolerate the employer for even a single day. I have seen the way in which employees are being verbally abused and am under extreme pain that I am not able to do anything as the employer is highly influential person with some good lawyers backing them up. Actually I am not concerned about my salary, but just want to know if there is something that I can do to ensure that employers do not take employees for granted? But I am equally concerned that I do not either have the money, time or strong influence in the society to face such employer. Also I am not sure what would be in store for me if I lose the battle. Also, the other employees who left are not willing to fight along with me for obvious reasons.

Seniors.....could you ppppppppppppppppplllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssssssse eeeeeeeeeeeee let me know what needs to be done?

First observation - your subject line is not really relevant to the problem quoted. What do you want us to respond to?
It is appreciable that you want to take this cause up. But do tell us, do you have a job? If not, getting one is your primary priority.
As you can see, most people wont have the gumption to fight it out. And your case is rather weak since you don't have any documentary evidence to back it up. A good lawyer can force the company to either table the email conversation as part of legal exhibits or have an out-of-court settlement done - if the company wants to restrict damage to reputation. However, with just one month's vintage and another month's notice pay at stake; I doubt if this is really worth the trouble. Let's see what the seniors say.

Thank you very much for your response. Thank you for the concern that you have shown with respect to my job. I am confident that I would find a job very soon.
Let me wait for the response from others as well.
could you please suggest a subject line to my post?

I concur with opinion suggested by 'Executor".
You are blowing hot and cold - if you do not have the time and money how do you plan to proceed.
I assume you are coming under 'Workmen" category and if you are serious about this approach the labour Court with a good Lawyer.
Emails are admitted as evidence in court proceedings ,but you have to prove and substantiate the same.

And even if your email resignation is produced, there is no acceptance of the same. From what little is available, on records, it does look like a water tight case of termination. Your claims of verbal abuse and stuff are quite difficult to substantiate in the absence of letters that you have written to the management recording such instances. Presumably you have come to this forum for suggestions, and my suggestion is to divert your attention to positive things like getting a better job and move on.

One of the lesson here is always keep on cc your personal email for subject like this. Electronic evidence is very important if you take counter charge against to your company.

I can understand you problem and I came across the same situation few months back. Itís very difficult to work under an unbearable circumstance. Moreover two of your colleagues have resigned the job without giving any notice period which clearly shows the circumstance.
One thing you didnít clearly described all these happenings at any particular person level or at organization level?
If one person is your problem, speak to your HR and explain the situation. If itís happening at organization level, try to contact the two employees who left the company and together contact a Lawyer and file a case provided you have money and time.
If not mention the organizationís name and the situations you came across in some forums like CiteHR and websites like Glassdoor so that we can at least save others from joining the organization.
My suggestion is involve in all these activities after getting some job.

Dear HR,
Email Conversation can't be considered as a resignation, you should have hard copy of acceptance of resignation. This is called experience, now further you will not repeat this thing again.
As related to teh case, you have no strong proof to fight against, so better move on and learn with this situation:).
All the best and tke cre.

Dear Upasana,
It is very clear , in this computer environment a resignation is acceptable through email. Of-course, the resignation is accepted or not is different one. A resignation through mail will get acknowledgement automatically. Then establishment of case. Cyber laws are very clear in the matter of correspondence/conversation validity through e-mails.
