It is discernible from your lengthy post that your long brewing discontentment culminated in your sudden decision to quit the job instantaneously. However, you should not have lost sight of the terms relating to the unilateral termination of the contract of employment. Acceptance of resignation by the employer, ipso facto, does not mean its automatic implementation, very particularly with the specific mention of the last working day on the expiry of the following third month as per the already mutually agreed termination clause.
In employment matters, one should be more rational than emotional. When the employer had come down with a concession of one month notice, such a good offer should never be refused by the employee on fastidious considerations.
No one can give you better advice than yourself. Therefore, take a decision conducive to your future career.
I hope you have understood my case. One has to be allocated with a manageable workload especially when the salary is low and with the kind of work I have been doing, I feel like a victim of work exploitation.
I have always extended my best efforts to perform in the organisation with best of my abilities. My decision to resign is not because I have got another job or have another offer elsewhere, it is only because I am extremely disappointed. I am under so much of stress and due to my disappointment, I am unable to concentrate on work and therefore do not wish to continue as I desperately need peace of mind and time to relax. I have made up my mind to an extent that I am even ready if the organization decides to terminate my services.
Since the company is not willing to accept my immediate resignation, I wish to understand what monetary and career consequences I can face if I go absconding (my dues towards working days, leave balance, LTA, PF, Gratuity etc) or what will happen if the company decides to terminate me.
Dont think of absconding or exit without papers as new employer will ask for previous work details.Take a calm decision and do what is right for your career development.Emotional exits will be having consequences at later date.
Advice above by Shri Umakanthan is valid and correct to the core.
I know I am getting emotional here. If I had to listen to my brain then I agree to your advice considering my career prospects but seriously... my heart does not even want to enter the facility after facing so much of non-cooperation and considering the non-employee-centric management thoughts.
I had been so much patient and determined in anticipation for years but now because the management not showing any kind of recognition, empathy and support, I get irritated quickly that shows up on my face and body language which does not allow me to concentrate and perform any more. I asked about absconding because I am in a very disturbed state of mind and may take a hasty emotional decision and therefore would urge if you can let us know the consequences if I deny serving notice period.
Thank you Mr.Umakanthan and Mr.Nathrao for your valuable advice.
The new employer may get negative feedback from this employer.
If proper papers are not there covering your work period, a kind of gap will arise in your CV.
While it is easy to advice, I still will say pull on for notice period and leave with documentation and all your financial benefits.
Finally you are the best judge- you take decisions and become responsible for the decisi0n.
Best of luck.
I understand negative feedback from present employer to new employer. Other than this, will there be any other consequence like a legal notice or non-clearance of my Dues/PF/Gratuity for a prolonged period of time or any other consequence? Sorry to bother you. Would appreciate if you can shed some light on it.
Mostly I will somehow convince myself to serve notice which is the right decision to make professionally but I really dont know whether I will be able to do that. Incase such a situation arise, I needed some advice if my Dues/PF/Gratuity will affect in any way.
Happy Dusshera to all members of this group.
I understand and agree the right way to go... as suggested and advised by all and I am thinking positively on that. However, one question of mine is still unanswered and appreciate if someone can shed some light on it.
My dues with the company is one part which I know can be held or delayed based on several factors such as notice period, notice pay clause etc but PF/Gratuity is another part. As a part of general knowledge I really wish to know if PF & Gratuity can be held by the company or will there be any delay in releasing the said amount as I believe the amount of PF is with the government (self and company contribution) and Gratuity is for loyalty which is calculated based on basic pay and tenure.
Eagerly awaiting a reply.
Your gratuity has to be paid to you or deposited with the Controlling Authority under the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972 within 30 days in case of any dispute thereof once the termination of your Employment is confirmed. Therefore, no need for any worry about it.
