Hi All,
I am in a difficult situation.
My current employer: X based in Delhi (My shift timings: 6.30 am to 3 pm), and
Future employer: Y based in Pune (Shift timing: 2 pm to 11 pm).
My current company has mandatory notice period of 3 months. My last working day is falling on 22nd Feb (Monday) and my new joining date at Y is also 22nd Feb.
I have tried to negotiate about my last working day at X for 19th Feb (Friday) as Saturday and Sunday are off. But if X is unwilling to relieve on 19th.
What options i have? (Except convincing Y for a later date of Joining)
Will the following option be legal?
"if i take a leave on 22nd at X and Join Y in the 2nd half which is after 6 pm. My relieving date will be 22nd whereas my joining date at Y will be 22nd too"
Please advice me on this.
Thank you in advance.

Dear friend
There is absolutely no problem if Relieving and Joining dates are the same; provided :
You must be relieved, before you join.
many organizations do not mention time of Relieving and Joining, but most mention alongwith date, whether the event took place in FN (Fore Noon) or AN (After Noon).
For example if your Relieving letter states that you were relieved on 22nd FN.
and your Joining Letter states that you joined on 22nd AN;
There seems to be absolutely no problem.
Hope you will be able to convince both the companies accordingly, and get your problem solved.
Warm regards.

Hi Friend, Please check with your current organisation HR policies as most of the organisations would not permit employees to take leaves in their notice period.

There seems to be the problem of logistics. If he is relieved at 3.00 pm in Delhi, it is not possible to join in Pune at 2.00 pm.
May be on the first day he can join a bit late say by 6.00 pm or 7.00 pm; with prior permission from his future employers.
