    Being asked to serve a notice period of a longer duration

    I recently applied for resignation and it was accepted just yesterday. Now my company is asking me to serve a notice period of 6 weeks duration while according to the rules of the company, the notice period is of 4 weeks duration. I asked them the reason for this but they are not giving any satisfactory reply. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hi aspirant

    I definitely think that you should not do such a thing and certainly ask your company the reason for making you serving a notice period of longer duration. You should definitely get this matter cleared from your manager or HR department and not let such injustice happen to you. You should only serve 4 weeks notice period as mentioned in the rules and policies of your company.

    You should go to your manager and ask him again that why you are being asked to serve 6 weeks notice period while that mentioned in the policies of the company is 4 weeks duration. You want a satisfactory reason for the same otherwise you are not going to serve this longer period. This is not fair on their part when all the others are serving 4 weeks notice period . This are being biased and that is definitely not good for the repuation of their company. Hope you will get a satisfactory reply soon.

    I am sure your manager will help you out and thus your problem will be solved. Good luck and Thanks

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is to be noted that the terms & conditions of the appointment are to be followed by both the employees & employers.It is not for the employees only.If any one or both violate them,the matter will be disputed & is hearable under court.

    So write a letter to the concerned authority referring the clause of notice period in your appointment letter.Request to change the period of notice asked you to give as per the terms & conditions of your service.If you are not entertained,meet the higher official & see the result.In last if you are not entertained,you can either accept it or you can take legal help.If you go for legal help,the matter may be prolonged.So it is better not to be serious in this matter & accept what your employer says to you & get relieved off taking the experience certificate & all your accounts settled in time.Mean while request your new employer to extend time of joining for another no. of days as per your requirement.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Dear friend, nothing can be done or created whimsical there are official rules and beyond this nobody can order or advise you to do here you are being asked by the employer to serve a longer notice period before leaving the company.I think it is never possible and must not go violating rules as far as notice period is concerned.

    If you are a permanent employee and have got better chances then you must submit notice to the employer as early as possible as the employer to adjust staff at your place by way of New Appointment so it takes time, I think that is the reason employer have asked you to submit a longer durated notice period.But in reality according to law any employee or employer on the basis of urgent need can serve notice period at least for 3 months ago to leave the company.As a permanent employee you must give 3 months notice then employer can not fine you, during the time of leaving company you will get release order/experience certificate etc.But if a candidate serve short notice period the he/she must compensate to the company as well as employer too compensate for the same action/purpose to the employee.

    Thank You,

    Dear if you do not want this then you must not do it because it would be really against the rules of the company and you should not get involved in this type of works and the service period is for 4 weeks then you should sign that only for 4 weeks not for more than it and if the company ask you and does not tell you anything fact about this then you may go to the CEO or CMD of the company and tell them everything about the situation but only if your senior or manager asking you for this otherwise it may be a big mistake in your career and you should not sign that notice until you do not get the satisfactory or actual reply from your seniors or manager otherwise they may use you for the work in that company for a long time

    Your right says that you must get an actual information about your work then you are allowed to work and if you are not getting then you may take the copy of terms and conditions of that company regarding the notice which you are going to sign and use RTI but dear if you found the reason positive then you should not do it and if the company is providing complete payout during 6 weeks then you should not leave and sign the notice

    All the best

    Hi.................,

    You need to write a complain letter to HR department regarding this.
    You must be sure that company rule is not changed.
    While at time of agreement company quoted 4 week duration then it must be followed.
    You can also tell company to challenge him in court if needed.
    Thus everything is in your favor.

    Thanks

    In your case, you should only serve the 4 weeks notice period.
    You need to get the Appointment letter copy and meet the HR team.
    You need to ask the HR team that as per the rule of the company and also as per the appointment letter given to you at the time of joining minimum 4 weeks notice period was required to be served while leaving the company, but you are being asked to serve 6 weeks

    You need to stress them that you will only serve 4 weks notice period and if they still say that 6 weeks is required than you need to tell them to tell you the exact reason for serving 6 weeks notice period

    hello sirEvery company or firm has registered official rules and these rules are approached by both part of company ie an employee who work here and other employer who provide work.If anybody avoid these rules or disturb it then all matters related the query go to care of labour court law.As I want to suggest you that you should provide notice period minimum 15 days or two weeks and for maximum it is four to six months.so your notice period comes under the policy and you will be eligible for leaving the job.no one can force for much working here.Every employee has a special right to entertaining salary incremental and promotion too.so it is entitling task for do.thanks

    Re: Being asked to serve a notice period of a longer duration

    I undoubtedly assume that you just mustn't do such a factor and definitely raise your company the rationale for creating you serving a notice amount of longer period. you must undoubtedly get this matter cleared from your manager or time unit department and not let such injustice happen to you. you must solely serve four weeks notice amount as mentioned within the rules and policies of your company.

    You must move to your manager and raise him once more that why you're being asked to serve six weeks notice amount whereas that mentioned within the policies of the corporate is four weeks period. you would like a satisfactory reason for an equivalent otherwise you're not progressing to serve this longer amount. this is often not honest on their half once all the others area unit serving four weeks notice amount . This area unit being biased which is unquestionably not smart for the name of their company. Hope you may get a satisfactory reply before long.
    It is to be noted that the terms & conditions of the appointment area unit to be followed by each the staff & employers.It is not for the staff solely.If anybody or each violate them,the matter are going to be controversial & is sonic underneath court.

    Thus write a letter to the involved authority referring the clause of notice amount in your appointment letter.Request to alter the amount of notice asked you to allow as per the terms & conditions of your service.If you're not amused,meet the upper official & see the result.In last if you're not amused,you will either settle for it or you'll take legal facilitate.If you opt for legal facilitate,the matter could also be prolonged.So it's higher to not be serious during this matter & settle for what your leader says to you & get mitigated off taking the expertise certificate & all of your accounts settled in time.Mean whereas request your new leader to increase time of connexion for one more no. of days as per your demand.
    Dear friend, nothing is done or created capricious there area unit official rules and on the far side this no one will order or advise you to try to to here you're being asked by the leader to serve a extended notice amount before departure the corporate.I think it's ne'er doable and should not go violating rules as so much as notice amount worries.

    If you're a permanent worker and have gotten higher probabilities then you need to submit notice to the leader as early as doable because the leader to regulate employees at your house by means of latest Appointment thus it takes time, i believe that's the rationale leader have asked you to submit a extended durated notice amount.But actually in line with law any worker or leader on the idea of pressing want will serve notice amount a minimum of for three months agone to depart the corporate.As a permanent worker you need to offer three months notice then leader cannot fine you, throughout the time of departure company you may get unharness order/experience certificate etc.But if a candidate serve short notice amount the he/she should compensate to the corporate in addition as leader too atone for an equivalent action/purpose to the worker.
