    Can I quit my job before the expiry of contract period?

    I finished my B.E and got selected in Cisco on 18 Months contract basis. I have already finished my 15 Months in the company and I had got opportunity to study in abroad. I want to quit my job and my contract period is not yet over. Can I quit the job before the contract? Will they cut my salary if I leave in the middle or will they ask me to pay the lump sum amount for breaching the contract? Please help me in this case.

    Ya there could be some problem for you if you leave the job before the contract period ends.
    For the consequences you can face you should read the terms and conditions in the contract
    you have signed with the company.As it is only three months left you can discuss this matter with
    your education provider abroad hope he will understand the same Or you can contact you HR manager
    and can discuss the matter with him

    Hi,

    You can quit before your contract.

    Yes ,your salary will be cut and you wont get any experience certificate.

    It will be like abscond from that organization.

    If you inform them they wont allow you to quit.


    But in-case if you have bond you cannot quit.

    If you quit then you have to pay the money for breaking the bond.

    Good Luck!!!

    Thanks,

    Hi,
    to get better position in abroad you can quit your company.

    As you have signed bond so you are to decide about this bond.

    If you think after the finishing of your contract you will go to abroad for admisssion.you get information from cisco about your late to join.

    If cisco allows you to join after 3 months then better you complete bond period.

    If you are not in a position to join abroad at cisco by late you are to compensate to break the bond.

    Thank you,

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulation for being selected to study in Abroad.

    Before leaving the present job, pl. refer the terms & conditions for your present appointment.

    Follow the terms & conditions for leaving the job.

    Otherwise you will not get the experience certificate,PF settlement etc.

    Also you may contact the manager HR/Personnel/Administration to be clear for the same.

    To my mind it will be better for you to get your resignation accepted .


    Thanks & best of luck.

    Hi,


    --Yup you can Quit your Job if you can face the Consequences by the Company--


    --First & Foremost is your last month Pay may be Holed--


    --Then your Experience Papers will not be issued--


    --Even you gonna proceed with your Higher Studies it is necessary to have papers for the work you done--


    --In Future you may use it for the Organization you gonna join--


    --The Experience papers will step you up from Fresher to Experience person--


    --If the Contract is mentioned any legal issues then you should bear to face it--



    _)(_Thanks_)(_

    Hi. Ya you surely will have to face many problems if you break your contract.

    they will not give you your experience certificate.

    There may be some legalities involved.

    You may also be required to pay a certain amount of money for breaking the contract.

    So its better first you get a clarity of all the clauses involved in your contract and then decide.

    Also its better if you talk to the person providing you Education Abroad and tell him you need to complete 3 months of your job before joining the course. If not possible then you try to talk to your company's officials. But please make a wise decision to avoid any legal trouble.

    Best of luck for your future

    Hi friend,

    As you are saying that you have finished your 15months of service for CISCO, it would be good for you if you complete those 3 months too.


    Because if you leave the company the consequences that you will be facing are:-

    1. you wont get a experience letter.

    2. As you have signed the contract as per the terms and conditions you need to pay the money for breaking the bond.

    3. you would get a bad remark if you leave the company without telling them.


    The things that you can do in order to solve your problem:-

    1. Explain them the situation that you are in.

    2. Tell them the goal that you want to achieve.

    3. Tell them that it was good working with the company and wouldn't have left it if you wouldn't have got this oppurtunity.

    4. Make your HR understand in a polite way.


    All these can only make your problem solve.

    Think twice, if you leave without telling them then you would loose your identity of getting experience, which would be a waste of your 1 and half year.


    hope i have helped you in solving your problem.

    Thanking you.

    all the best.

    CISCO is a big company.
    If you want to do , then go for further studies.
    It will help you build your career.Good opportunities comes few times in life.
    Utilize it to the fullest.I suggest you to go for further studies.
    Even if you have to break bond and pay something, do it and go for further studies.

    Good Luck!!!!!

    Hi,

    Yes you can quit your job before the expiry of contract period.


    But you should be ready to face the consequences.


    First if you quit before the expiry of contract period they will never give you your experience certificate.


    This might be a black mark for you if you have any plan to come back and work in this oraganization in future.


    Then 15 months of your working experience get wasted.


    If you inform the company and quit they may not leave you before the expiry of contract period.


    If you quit without informing the company it will be treated as abscond.


    If you have signed any legal documents then your in danger.


    They may take legal actions against you.


    The best way is to finish your contract period and then go for your studies.Seek some grace permission in the university.


    Thanks ***

    Hello Dear Friend....

    I am really sorry to say this....

    You can not come out of the job before the expiry of your contact Period...

    It mainly depends on the Company .....and its " Terms & Condition "//////



    >> Sometimes If you come out of that before expiry period ....you need to pay the money to the company....

    >> Break-up the bond and its pay depends on the company it self...


    Some of the companies do not ask for the money if you break - up the bond....




    ALL THE BEST & GOOD LUCK

    Re: Can I quit my job before the expiry of contract period?

    DEAR FRIEND ,


    If you want to break the bond, then you firstly have to read the offer document, which you would have joined at the time of joining. You need to follow the steps which are mentioned there. So there is a need to understand the document properly. Now basically what happens is that, the people who break the bond have to pay a lot of money as mentioned in the document to get the NOC ( No objection Certificate) from the company. NOC is required when you switch companies or are going for higher studies. You need to clarify the terms with your company's management and hence negotiate if possible.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

    Hello

    Yes you can quit the company if you are getting some better options else where. And if you are getting a good seat in a good college then its real wise to go for it as it will secure your future even more.

    One small problem that you have to face is you wont be getting your experienced certificate plus you might have to pay some fine while leaving the company

    Thank you

    Re: Can I quit my job before the expiry of contract period?

    Dear friend,

    As you said you are a contract employee in CISCO, there must be some contract signed between you and your employer.
    So, I would suggest you to go through your contract and act accordingly.
    I believe there must be some amount allotted if an contract employee breaches the contract, so if you would be able to pay that amount then you can surely leave the job in the middle, but if you find it difficult to pay then do not leave the job.

    Well if you really got a good opportunity in abroad, then you can talk to senior level management of your company by giving them application of request with attached copy of the offer you got from abroad, I guess they will consider your issue as you have already completed 15 months in your company only 3 months are left. Still it would be all in hands of your top level management decision if they accept your request or not.

    All the best.

    Dear Friend

    Yes you can leave the job but leaving in the contract period you have to pay some amount to the company for the and you have signed with at the time of joining..

    If you know that it will be very good for your future to study abroad then just break the bond and give the amount..

    But if you dont have sufficient amount of money then you should not leave it as they will not give you the important original documents that you have submitted at the time of joining..

    So think about it and also consult from the wise and experienced persons..

    ALL THE BEST

    In some companies, if you quit your job before your contract period they might take legal actions against you.

    They have the agreement with them and have the power to take actions against you.

    But most of the big companies dont really take this into consideration. The agreement is just to create a fear in you not to leave the company.

    But if something turns up, you have all the right to move to the court of law and this shall again be a very long term procedure.

    Re: Can I quit my job before the expiry of contract period?

    Yes you'll quit your job before the end of contract amount.
    But you ought to be able to face the implications.
    First if you quit before the end of contract amount they're going to ne'er offer you your expertise certificate
    This could be a black mark for you if you have got any commit to come and add this organization in future.
    Then fifteen months of your operating expertise get wasted.
    If you inform the corporate and quit they will not leave you before the end of contract amount.
    If you quit while not informing the corporate it'll be treated as decamp.
    If you have got signed any legal documents then your in peril.

    there might be some downside for you if you allow the work before the contract amount ends.For the implications you'll face you ought to scan the terms so its higher initial you get a clarity of all the clauses concerned in your contract and so decide.If you inform the corporate and quit they will not leave you before the end of contract amount.It will assist you build your career.Good opportunities comes few times in life.Utilize it to the fullest.I recommend you to travel for additional studies

    Hello Friend,
    Yeah you can quit the job before your contract period but there are few consequences you may face
    1-you wont get any forma release so you have to resign the company
    2-in that case you have to pay the agreement amount if you claim for experience certificate
    if you dont take your experience certificate you may not able to produce it any other interview so you have to stay afresh
    3-company may take legal action against you.
    4- it will declare you abscond employee who in future ever wont be able to that company
    5-you wont get the PF and other amount what company cut from your salary.
    so think well before breaking contract and leave the job
    Thank You.

    Re: Can I quit my job before the expiry of contract period?

    Dear friend there are obligations if an employee quit's from his/her job place before the expiary period of contract.
    1.You will not get release order/experience/skill certificates from the company.

    2.If you quit and join another company then your previous company will send legal notice.

    3.As per statement you have got better option in abroad named as CISCO.

    4.If you do not produce release letter/experience/skill certficate they may refuse your admission.

    So, avert such obligation as an respected employee you are to compensate the company as per contract done by you at the time of joining or you can complete your contract period taking permission from abroad CISCO company re-extension of admission time.

    Thank you,
