Hello people, I am working under contract for a reputed company. It was a 6-month contract but then as the process is going to wind up soon, they have extended the contract. Now due to severe health problems, I have resigned asked for immediate relief. As they have fewer people to handle the work they are forcing me to serve a notice period of 30 days. I am not in a condition to work even for a day. I have provided all the reports and explained them. They are saying it will be considered as absconding which I don't want to. We were never communicated about the notice period or not mentioned in any docs by the vendor or the company where I am working and their client. Now I am helpless. Need guidance.

If there is no condition of notice period, no employer can force you to work against your wish -S.K. Mittal 9319956443

Dear Anisha,

Please check your contract agreement is there any clause pertaining to serving of notice period. If, there is no such clause you can leave without further delay. Before leaving arrange a Medical certificate from doctor "advised bed rest for 1 month with medication'' as doctor considered proper for the treatment, attach the paper with the application sent.

The body first then other things. Meet the head and discuss the reason of early leaving as body does not allow you to work, if there is notice period clause.

Where no specified notice period is there in your appointment letter or contract, then the standard period specified in the Standing Orders will apply. If your company does not have standing orders, then model standing orders of the state should be followed.

Being allowed to be relieved early is something that the Employer decides and is not mandated by law. The other option is that you resign but give a medical certificate, offering to complete your notice period after you get a 'Allowed to Resume Work' certificate from the doctor.

You have been working for 6 months, so there is no question of any closing dues like Gratuity. So you actually benefit from remaining in employment for another (say) 3 months. It will look better when you apply elsewhere. Or do not resign, just take leave of absence. If the work is being wound up, they will accept your resignation in due course.

However, if this is all an excuse to join at the next job early, then no, we are not in a position to help you.
