I working for an Indian company in Bangalore. My hubby has travelled to uk a month back. Now I am planning to travel to uk. In my company they agreed for 3months work from home (in uk). They don\'t agree for long term work from home in uk. My salary would be credited to Indian account n this not an official deputation. My query I am working from home in uk and after 3 months I am resigning the job from uk with reason I cannot travel down to India because of health issues. In this case what would be the procedure to surrender the company laptop and other resigning procedure to go ahead from uk only without travelling to India.

Dear Palpoo,
Have you disclosed to your HR department that you wish to resign after three months of your work-from-home period? What they say? What is the policy on employee separation in your company?
Is it possible for you to surrender the laptop and other company property now itself and then move to UK? Can you use your personal laptop for official work? Is it possible?
Is it possible for you to resign now itself and give three month long notice period? This will give HR sufficient time to look for your replacement.
Explore these possibilities and confirm your views.
All the best!

Dear Divekar Sir,
Sorry to inturrupt. If whe is submitting the resignation and going to UK then she might have to pay the Notice Period Pay as she will be absent on duties.
In this case it is suggested that she should disclose the fact that she is going to resign after three months. During this 3 months she will work from UK.
Only question of Laptop. Either she can use the personal one or can carry the Company's one the cost (of course reasonable) of the same deducted from her F&F as she is not in a position to return the same.

Hello Palpoo,

Further to what Dinesh V Divekar & Ramakant mentioned, there's ONE aspect that begs clarity/clarification from you.

When you have already made-up your mind to resign after 3 months, why are you eager to adopt work-from-home for these 3 months? Was it YOUR or the Company's idea? Why don't you just quit & move?

OR if serving the Notice Period in India is the issue, I think Dinesh V Divekar has already given the solution to it--serve the NP by work-from-home mode.

There's a Quote that deserves bearing in mind: "A lie always needs an accomplice; ONLY Truth can stand alone".

This emanates from your plan to feign health issues to resign later. You already are able to see one consequence--how to return the Laptop. Are you sure there won't be others when you reach that stage? I am sure there will be--and you will end-up inventing more such bluffs [IF the word 'lie' is too strong for you].

Hope you get the point.

IF, for whatever reason(s) doing the job for these 3 months is important for YOU [NOT for the NP reasons], just be upfront & discuss with your HR & handle with transparency.

It always pays to preempt a situation rather than creating it & then going about resolving it [that's a politician's domain...NOT a professional's]. :-)

All the Best.
