Hey Friends, I have been working with the company for the last 2.5 years. It is a private limited company. I have resigned and agreed to serve the notice period of 3 months. My company is asking me to leave early without any notice. Can I ask my company to pay me for the notice period not served as they are asking me to leave early without any notice? Please suggest the legal clauses to which I can refer to and escalate it. Need it on an urgent basis.

As you have resigned, you need to serve the notice period. The organisation has the right to accept the resignation and relieve you earlier than is provided in the service condition. But there is the principle of legitimate expectation. According to it as per service condition you could expect to serve the employer for three months and when the employer is refusing to allow you to serve the full three month, the employer has committed breach of the service agreement and hence has to compensate you. So you can ask for payment for the remaining portion of notice period as per Contract Act 1872. According to Section 37 of the Act, the parties to a contract are under the obligation to either perform or offer to perform the promises which have been agreed upon under the contract. You have attempted to perform your part but the opposite party is refusing to perform its part and hence compensation is payable as per Section 73: Compensation for loss or damage caused by breach of contract: When a contract has been broken, the party who suffers by such breach is entitled to receive, from the party who has broken the contract, compensation for any loss or damage caused to him thereby, which naturally arose in the usual course.
You can raise demand on this basis.
