Hi, I joined a small firm a few days back. I did not like the work culture and am going back to my old company. Now my old company wants me ASAP. However, the new firm wants me to serve a 2 months notice period.

Below is my offer letter.

"Please note that for the first six months of your employment you will be deemed to be on probation and during this period, XYZ reserves the right to terminate this contract by giving one week’s notice in writing or salary in lieu thereof. Within sixty days of completion of the six month period if you have not received a notification stating otherwise including, without limitation, extension of probation period, your employment is deemed to be confirmed.

You have the right to terminate employment for any reason, or no reason, at any time by giving 60 days’ notice as required by your appointment letter with XYZ. XYZ also reserves the right to terminate your employment by giving 60 days’ notice, which is not applicable if reasons are related to performance and fraud issues. The terms of employment are not subject to change or modification of any kind except if in writing and signed by you and the CEO of XYZ."

I have been with this company for less than 2 months(50 days to be precise). I want to know

1. How long should be my notice period?

2. What are my options if my notice period is for 2 months? Can they forcefully hold me up? I am facing hostile work enevironment and little verbal abuse there. I don't want to create a fuss,but I would like to leave as early as possible.
