My current company’s official notice period is 60 days though early release is possible. I resigned and my manager accepted the resignation and also wrote on the resignation form that will be released early in 30 days and so I confirmed the other company about my joining. Now suddenly the company owner has crossed it and wrote 60 days on it and saying I won’t get release letter, docs and financial dues if I leave before 60 days. Not even ready for buyout. What should I do now?

Hello, Just pay one month salary in lieu of notice period, I hope your owner may not object on it. Arun J

I tried this also. But they are saying we won’t allow this also.

If you have an appointment letter then their must be clause of notice period, and salary in lieu of notice period show it to them. If it is mentioned in your Appointment Order then they cannot force you for such thing.

There is no such thing mentioned. The problem is I was confirmed both in written and verbal that I should get early release and now I am denied.

Try Take it up with the new Co. and ask for extension of time to join. And also ask whether they are ok without relieving letter on joining them after expiry of one's notice period which has been agreed in writing. You may show a copy of this as a proof of your resignation and their endorsement. (I afraid you didn't take a copy of this endorsement before they scratched it out hu ?). Simultaneously keep requesting them to relieve you within the originally agreed one month. Is there any unfinished work or project. If there is one try to complete them within one month, probably they won't mine thereafter. Try Try all the time. All the best.

It does not mean that you have asked for early relieving that is why your employer is asking to serve for full notice period. If your appointment order says that there should be notice of 60 days either side and does not say anything about in lieu of notice pay compensation you have to serve entire notice period. You may approach and request the higher ups for early relieving.

Since your Appointment Letter does not carry early release and your owner being the final authority who compel you to give notice period of 60 days, nothing much can be done just to accept it. As Mr. Kumar has suggested try to convince your new employer either to extend your joining or to take you without your relieving

- Are you joining a competitor ?
- Have you told your present company where you are joining ?
- Is there any unfinished, critical project dependent upon you staying on ?
- Do you have proof, in writing, of your direct superior accepting your resignation ?
Above would determine your course of action. If all the answers are in your favor, first request your direct superior's intervention who initially recommended your relieving ...he could be in the same boat as you tomorrow so should be understanding. If that fails, next try to convince the joining organization..for a genuine case they should be flexible if they really want you.....
I have a feeling you are joining a competitor and the present employer knows about it .. right or wrong ?
