I am working as HR in retail company from last 5 months. Here everyone got appointment letter except me. Despite of asking and several reminders, I didn't get appointment letter. Whenever I ask, i got reply that you are getting salary why you need letter.
Now I am thinking of leaving this company because of travelling issues. So my question is, do i need to serve any notice period after putting papers as i don't get appointment letter??

Dear Richa,
From a strict legal perspective, you can simply resign forthwith without any notice since no formal appointment orders confirming your contract of employment with the employer. However, being a HR, you have to accept that the efflux of your 5 months service in the organization is a tacit acceptance of the appointment and therefore you would be automatically governed by the service regulations including notice on resignation as applicable to all other employees in the same organization. If you got any valid reasons for exit other than the appointment letter issue, well, you can negotiate with the employer and make the exit so formal and mutual as not to be an obstacle in your future career. This is my personal view.
You need to look at your own career and if this particular experience is going to be of any help in the future. If yes, give a reasonable notice period [1 month] and get relieving letter along with other docs and payment. Who knows it is a small world and you may end up in the same company if not now maybe at a later stage in a senior position. It is always good to be parting ways in an amicable manner and should be in a position to greet if you happen to meet any of your employers/ colleagues anytime. Legally you may not be bound but that maybe taking the things a bit too far which I am sure you are not interested at this stage of your career nor does it serve any purpose.
