I am currently working in XYZ organization for 3 years. My offer letter says that i have to server 2 months notice period and it is mandatory. There is no mention of either i can buy out or not. Also nothing is mentioned of any action can be taken against me like revoking relieve and experience letter if i do not serve.
I have got a good oppurtunity near my home. also due to medical condition of my mom i have to leave and be near home But when resigned and offering one month notice period they are not ready to relieve me .
Please help.

Dear Friend, When you are very clear about the offer letter better two months notice period and relief with respect.. best of luck..

There are sometimes when you have to grab the opportunity, I know about notice period. I just want to know the options to get relieved other than serving extra one month. I am ready to serve one month notice period. BUt cannot server two as due to home conditions

In that case, please talk to the manager, as you have served well to the company and the compelling situation at home is required to be met. Certainly, they will accept, ofcourse, there are rare cases, in that put your paper to the next higher authorities explaining the situation without injuring the first senior. Every thing is in our approach...
best of luck ...

Hello Rhl.Shm,
I am not sure of your intent/logic of repeatedly asking '......if i can be relieved within one month notice period', when Gopinath Varahamurthi has already given you a way out.
What are you expecting?
You know the Rules which you yourself have mentioned. And you also know that for any agreement.....this or anything else.....BOTH sides have to have a mutual agreement. So unless you convince the management, how do you expect to get relieved in 1 month?
Also, pl note that Notice Period Buyout NOT being mentioned DOESN'T effect your case in any way......for the simple reason that most organizations know that employees will begin to quote the Rules when it suits them.
The reason why the Buyout clause won't effect your case in any way is this: Such clauses are ALWAYS followed by wordings like ' the sole discretion of the Company/management'. So using such options will only be contingent to a mutual agreement rather than being enforced as a right.
You have only 2 options:
1] Serve the full NP & go smoothly with your Relieving Docs.
2] Talk to your bosses & convince them to relieve you early.
Though, technically, a III option exists, I wouldn't recommend it: Absconding. It will cost you much more in the long-term.
All the Best.

Dear Friend: Serve full notice period or otherwise you have to convince your Management. Similarly, you can inform your position to your new employer that you need to comply the notice period formalities with the present employer and seek time to join with them. such action displays your genuineness which may be rewarded by your new employer. More so, you have time to assess the environment in which you are going to take the new assignment. Please think twice and take wise decision.

I have a question. My offer letter says that a notice period of two months is required. There is no mention what consequences are there is not served fully. but in my company policy of separation there that Any shortfall in notice period, even in case approved by company, will be recovered from the full & final settlement. Any exception needs to be approved by management. And plus i have serious family condition which requires me to be at at home and look after my family member as he is in critical condition and cannot be left alone. and being the only son i need to full fill my responsibility there too and i have all the medical proofs and cards necessary for last months which states that the condition is serious. Can all these things keeping in mind will be of any help because this is truth that my need in home is very much needed now. so according to offer policy and separation policy can i mention any strong statement to get relieved early

just to Add I left the job offer yesterday because my company was not ready to relieve me in one month even i told them about the conditions. So i had to let go off the offer.

Hello Rhl.Shm,
I can visualize how you would be feeling.......taking such a decision is surely NOT easy.
Even though I had this option in mind, I didn't really mention in my posting of 20 Aug, 2015, since that would have sounded pessimistic from YOUR point-of-view.
However, suggest be on the lookout for ANY changes in the treatment accorded to you in this present Company........sometimes Companies are known to ignore those who resigned & then stayed back--with actions ranging from giving good assignments to others, etc.
You shouldn't get disheartened IF such situations arise later.
And IF they really do, make your next move MORE carefully, clearly & clarity--BOTH vis-a-vis your present Company & the new Company.
It always pays to give the clear NP picture to the new Company--IF you can manage early joining, that should be projected as a bonus, rather than give commitments over an aspect on which you have no real control.
All the Best.
