Hello, I joined XXX College as lecturer in dept of anatomy on 11th of April with salary of 25000 per month. I have not signed any of the bond. So once I joined I got to hear from my fellow colleagues that the XXX institutions doesn't pay on time. Then I really started facing it. My April month salary was paid somewhere around June 2nd week. May month salary is still pending. According to my offer letter I am on probation period. So I resigned on June 28th asking immediate release. Now they are not giving me relieving letter and may month salary. They are asking for notice period of 3 months. I have to say the college is really in bad condition. All lab chemicals are outdated and anatomy specimens are perished. Now I have a new offer which I would like to take up August 1st onwards.I would like to hear from you. Thank you

Salary has to be paid within 7-10th day of the next month. Employer cannot delay in payment of salary irrespective of whatever reason. If they don't pay within the period then you have every right to claim the salary along with compensation.
Regarding resignation within the period of probation - what does your appointment letter say about it? Is there any notice period? If so, then you are entitled to serve the notice period or pay equivalent amount in lieu thereof. If there is a notice period, then there is no scope of immediate resignation until you agree to pay notice pay. Grounds like college having bad condition, chemicals, anatomy outdated etc. has not much value in eye of law for leaving the job.
Please note that, whether your employer asks you to serve notice period or not, delayed/ withholding payment of salary is illegal and has no relationship with your resignation.If required, consult an able lawyer.

Thank you for your reply Ritheshmaity. My offer letter says 3 months notice period. Plus it mentions I am on probation period for an year. In probation will the notice period hold good. From what I heard notice period doesn't hold good during probation period. And they haven't paid me my may month salary yet. April month salary was paid on June 13th. It's just 2 months I worked in that Institute. I resigned on 28th of June. I have a job offer which I need to join in August 1st. Can u please tell what can I do. Thank you. Expecting some helpful reply.

The notice period is valid for both probationary as well as confirmed period. However, sometimes offer letters mentions a period x notice period during probation and period y during confirmed period. But if notice period is mentioned, then you cannot consider that notice period during probation will hold no good. For better understanding, your offer letter needs to be read thoroughly.

Your salary is already due and the one which was paid, was paid delayed. You can definitely seek legal remedy to recover the salary but think if it is worth your time and money (legal expenses if incurred).

Since you have already got a new job (hopefully better) is it necessary to get a relieving letter from your current employer since you have only worked for 2 months.

Do you have acknowledgement of submission of the resignation letter? If yes, what is it? Have they denied you in writing that your resignation is not accepted? If not, remain idle for some time as the law says, if the resignation is not rejected in writing, then it will be deemed that it has been accepted.

Hello Riteshmaity, I am really thankful to your reply. Actually the new is good one. There is one thing I forgot to mention, this institution pays salary whenever they feel like. Lot of employees just quit and go without even taking salary or reliving letter. If asked for salary they talk rudely and ask for work log. And they yell at employees who ask for salary. And if resigned they(mother and son) call to their office and start yelling. Is it legal to do that? Monday after 5 they have asked me to meet me in their office for asking my salary and relieving letter. I would like to you to know about it. Thank you

This is absolutely illegal. If they don't follow the rules/ law, complaint can be lodged before the appropriate authority.

Since you have submitted resignation letter, there is no compulsion to meet them personally. They cannot yell at you, and if you wish you can even lodge a complaint before police station. You better send a letter through registered post asking for outstanding salary as well as release letter.
