Hello Team, I am an IT professional & working in a MNC. As per offer letter, 3 months is the notice period or liable to pay basic components of the salary for the balance period during early release. However, please note that accepting any such early relieving request wold be entirely at the discretion of the company.
I am serving notice period now and would like early release as father's health is not good. I have already shared the medical certificate and all but HR & Delivery is not ready for relieving me early.
I have done all the conversation in last 20 days but they are forcing me to serve the complete notice period. They are suggesting me to go on LWP but I don't want to opt that due to financial crisis. Early release will help me to get the PF amount and this amount will help me in coming days.
Are there any way to get the early release from the company? If yes please suggest.

Dear friend,
Sorry for the precarious situation you're facing. Acceptance of the option of Buy-out of the notice period in part or full by the resigning employee is always a matter of discretion of the employer. The primary reason for the conferment of such discretion on the employer in the contract of employment is that of work exigencies only. In your case, the stand of the management that you can go on leave on loss of pay but you should serve the entire notice period is indicative more of the fact that at any cost you should not be allowed to exercise the buy out option than any actual requirements of work. It may be an instance of misinterpretation by some middle level manager in the HR department undermining the human side of the issue so as to prove his passion for preventing hike in attrition rate or to create the impression of his own effectiveness in disposing of issues finally at his own level. Therefore, you may seek an audience with the CEO, convincingly explain your precarious situation and get a positive nod from him. No other legal course of action seems available to my mind.
