Hi I am working in company and I have resigned from my job. I supposed to serve the notice period of 60 days, I am ready to serve the whole notice period. But company is asking me for early relieve and they don\'t want to pay the money for remaining days.
I am asking them for money of remaining days, they don\'t want me to serve.
I have following questions.
1). Whatever they are doing is correct or not?
2). Am I eligible for money of remaining days I am not serving.

Many companies do what this company has done to ensure that the person leaving does not take company's secrets out. Whether you are entittled to 3 months salary or not depends upon the employment contract that you were given.

Hello cs_jai,

There could be quite a few reasons for companies to relieve someone early [before the Notice period], like:

1] Want to push the employee out ASAP--could be a security risk [like Simhan mentioned].

2] performance-related [what would this guy do staying here now, except taking salary?]

3] the resignation could be in-tune with the HR's lay-off plans--saves them the trouble of laying off the employee [more prevalent in IT sector].

AND maybe a few more.

Coming to your queries:

1). Whatever they are doing is correct or not?

I don't think this is a right/wrong issue. Legally the company would be covered [check your Appointment Letter--usually something like '.....at the discretion of the company/management......' would be mentioned].

2). Am I eligible for money of remaining days I am not serving.

Like Simhan mentioned, pl check your Appointment Letter.

But why do you want the salary for a period you haven't worked here? Suggest look @ this aspect/point in another way.

You would have got another job which is the cause for this resignation, in the first place. And i presume I can pretty comfortably assume that the new Offer has a better CTC than what you are getting now. So maybe this could be your chance to get into the new job & start to draw a higher salary ASAP, than waiting until 3 months--just give this a thought.

But in case you want this company to pay you the 3 months salary AND yet join the new company earlier & get the advantage what I mentioned above, all I can say is: stop getting greedy......that's the surest way to anyone's downfall in the long-run.

All the Best.

my friend had a same situation last week. current company want to push him out on the next day, where as he took 2months time.from.the new company thinking he will not get relieved unless he serve the notice. but ne company doesnt want him join earlier as his bg check needs to be completed before he join. in this case employee will be with out job/salary for 2months, thouh he got another better job with better ctc. when employee is ready to serve the notice why should current company push him out with out paying any salary??i feel that as long as there is offence or mis behaviour which leads to termination, current company should use some ethics, as they expect thesame from employee.

Dear Sir,
When you have resigned for your job, normally there won't be any interest in the Co. affairs.
The Management is also not interested in you to entrust important jobs.
When both parties are not having confidence in each other, it is better to quit.
If the management is willing, you can proceed on leave for remaining period of notice period if you want to continue in service.

Mr.Gurumurthi is right. When a staff resign from a company, there may not be a dedication and involvement output for the employer. and the employer may be recruite for the post and not willing to pay two salary for the same post. You better join to the new offer you got or you may deduct your leave if you have. But dare not to make an issue this. It may cause to bad remarks on the enquiry of your new employer to the current employer.
Think and act.

Many of our friends above have explained this clearly. The moment someone puts his paper, he loses in his job and he would be less involved in the job.
Company also is not going to get any big thing out of this period. It is "his decision" to quit the company and company "never asked him to quit". It is the choice of the company to relieve him before the full notice period is served or otherwise. Expecting salary for the balance period is not fair.

yes its happen some time,when companies doesn't wants to provide compensation or you don't have work which assigned to you. so its better you should move ahead and think about new opportunity which you got.
Best of luck....

Dear Jai
I am not aware regarding the reason why you are living the current organization, wether for some better offer from other company or the current company forced you to leave.....
If the case of Notice period being in HR i can say there are two options
1. You serve your whole notice period and get your salary
2. If company is pushing you and you are ready to serve the notice period and as per your appointment letter it is mention that any party can leave the job by giving two months notice then they have to pay you your notice period wether they want or not.
But just remb that if you are forced not to come for the job but still they will consider your notice then you will be eligible for getting your basic salary only as a notice period amount . As it is applicable in both the cases if you leave without serving the notice period then company is liable to deduct only Basic salary as your notice period.
So think about it and discuss clearly with your HR or Management.

If you have mentioned in your resignation to relieve you " on or before" the completion of the Notice period, the management can , at its will, relieve you even before the completion of notice period, with out paying you the difference of Notice period.
