    Delay in acceptance of resignation letter by the company affects the joining date of the new company

    I had applies for resignation in present company on 1st September. We have to 3 months’ notice period. My relieving date is 30th November. I have to join the new company on 1st December. I had not received any acceptance till yesterday but today i.e. 30th September. I have received the acceptance and from that my last day of working will be 30th December. This will also affect my joining to new company. I cannot extend my joining date. What should I do in this case? Please help.

    Hi. I do understand your situation. I think you should discuss the present situation with both the companies-in which you are working right now and which you are going to join. There surely will be some way out.

    Surely if you are unable to join on time you may not get the new job. First of all you should talk to your present company about this situation and tell them you have given the resignation notice well in advance but they replied late and that you have to join the new company on 1st December so for that you want your experience letter and other documents well in advance. I think they will surely understand your situation and help you.

    You can talk to the other company too for extendind the joining date.

    If no solution comes out then you dont go to your present company after 30th November. They will not give you your salary but you will get the new job. Take the experience certificate in advance if possible because that is very important.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    Re: Delay in acceptance of resignation letter by the company affects the joining date of the new company

    The dates mentioned in your questions is somewhat misleading, ie on 9th Sep you have written it as 30th September and also question has been posted on 9th sep 2012 itself.

    But Anyhow since your resignation was accepted on say 9th Sep 2012 and your last working day has been put as 9th Dec 2012
    But Since you have to join your next Company on 1st Decebmer 2012.

    In this case, you should directly Talk to your Boss and request him to make the last working day as 30th nov 2012.
    You need to tell him that since you had sent the resignation letter on 1st Sep 2012, so you are already serving the three months notice period which is required to be served as per the rule of the company.

    If In case your Boss does not listen to your requests and is not ready to change the last working date, than you need to approach the HR manager of the company and need to tell him the whole issue.
    You need to stress the fact that as per the rule of the compnay, you are ready to serve the 3 months mandatory notice period, and delay in decision making by your boss should make you suffer.
    Hopefully HR should be able to resolve the issue in your favour.

    The last resort would be if niether HR or Your boss is ready to change the date. Than Request your Next company to delay the joining date if possible.
    Or
    You should pay your current employer the salary for number of days you have not served the notice period.that option is there in all companies

    Hi Friend,
    This is not a big deal. Don't worry about this. As you are experienced it doesn't matter even you joined bit late than your joining date.
    You have to explain to the company in which you are going to join ahead about this delay. You are leaving from your old work place so in last days of your service don't make situation difficult. Because you have to get experience letter from them.
    Rather than that you can inform to new company. They will consider your request to extend joining date.

    All the best!!

    Hello,

    Friend i totally understand your problem here. And t be very honest this is one of the problems which are not created by you , but will affect yu definetly.
    So what do we do in this case.
    Well when you have given the resignation than thee is hardly anything you can do except talk to the HR department.

    Case 1:
    You can talk to the HR team of your current company and request them to speed up the resignation process for you. Well after all they are the one who will handle your case. So be polite and ask them to help you .
    But in many situations it does'nt help so , you have the case 2.

    Case 2:
    In this case if you present company people somehow are not able to help you , than you can call the HR people of the company yu are joining and tell them to delay your joining for a month or something.
    For that you can give n excuse like the medical problem or something.
    So by this once your joining is delayed you can resign and join the company easily.

    -Regards

    Hi Friend,
    If you have written resignation email on 1st September it does not matter when they accept it, considering 3 months notice period your relieving date should be 30th November.
    Most of the companies consider the date when they received your resignation letter either through system or email. It should not be considered from acceptance date.
    Please speak to your current company HR and seek clarifications on relieving date if still it does not work out request new company to extend your joining date and I am sure they will extend it considering the case.

    Hello

    Since you are leaving your old company and if you had good relation with them , then just go and talk to your supervisor and manager i am sure it will solve your problem.

    Then again if that doesnt solve this issue ask your new employers to consider your situation. If they have hired you seeing your talent they will definitely give you at least 30 days extension. They wont take a chance of letting you go considering the amount of time they would have taken to hire you.

    Plus you need the experience certificate aswell. This is the main part. That is why you were working.

    So dont worry have patience and hope for the best

    Thank you

    Re: Delay in acceptance of resignation letter by the company affects the joining date of the new company

    Firstly you have wrongly mentioned the dates 30th september is yet to come and it means you have received the acceptance say on 8th september or may be on 9th september if your company works on sunday. So three months notice period will come to end on 8-9 december. So there may be delay of 9-10 in joining the new company. Two things you can do, first contact the HR of your existing company, make him understand your problem and request him to allow you to join the other company from 1st december. Or you have to request the new company for extending your joining date, by making them understand the problem you are facing. One or the other party will definately listen to you. You can solve your problem.

    Hi,


    At this case you can join the new company

    State to the previous company that you had issued 3 month notice period

    Its company fault to declare things at the last minute

    Don't worry about this . Talk to the HR regarding this politely

    Surely this situation is considered and exp certificate is granted

    Tell to the new company about this problem and show evidences for this

    If possible get time from them .

    I do perceive your scenario. i believe you must discuss the current scenario with each the companies-in that you're operating at once and that you're aiming to be part of. There sure enough are how out.

    sure enough if you're unable to hitch on time you'll not get the new job. 1st of all you must seek advice from your gift company regarding this case and tell them you have got given the resignation notice well before however they replied late which you have got to hitch the new company on first December therefore for that you simply need your expertise letter and alternative documents well before. i believe they're going to sure enough perceive your scenario and assist you.

    you'll be able to seek advice from the opposite company too for extend ind the connexion date.

    If no answer comes out then you do not head to your gift company when thirtieth Gregorian calendar month. they're going to not offer you your remuneration however you may get the new job. Take the expertise certificate before if potential as a result of that's vital.

    The dates mentioned in your queries is somewhat dishonorable, that is on ninth September you have got written it as thirtieth Sept and conjointly question has been denote on ninth September 2012 itself.

    however Anyhow since your resignation was accepted on say ninth September 2012 and your last operating day has been place as ninth Dec 2012
    however Since you have got to hitch your next Company on first December 2012.

    during this case, you must directly seek advice from your Boss and request him to create the last operating day as thirtieth Nov 2012.
    you would like to inform him that since you had sent the resignation letter on first September 2012, therefore you're already serving the 3 months notice amount that is needed to be served as per the rule of the corporate.

    If just in case your Boss doesn't hear your requests and isn't able to amendment the last operating date, than you would like to approach the time unit manager of the corporate and wish to inform him the full issue.
    you would like to fret the very fact that as per the rule of the corporate, you're able to serve the three months necessary notice amount, and delay in higher cognitive process by your boss ought to cause you to suffer.
    Hopefully time unit ought to be able to resolve the difficulty in your favor.

    Re: Delay in acceptance of resignation letter by the company affects the joining date of the new company

    Hello Friend,
    this is a common situation in all companies and the company which you are going to join also know the same ,so you can talk to them and join 1 day later if thats not possible ask permission to submit your experience certificate and other relevant documents in a week or two,in that case you can leave your current job on the specified date on your resignation letter and can collect the documents latter.
    however you should have in constant touch with your PM,management ,HR to quicken the process of release such that it wont affect your joining date in other company.
    now in this situation if you leave the company there will be no problem as in your resignation letter you have mentioned the date properly and they cant take any action against you neither can stop any of your clearance.you better first join the other company by taking there permission then collect your documents and submit it.
    Thank You.
