    Got another job before the redundancy period ended. Do I have to work the whole notice period?

    According to my contract with my company a 12 week redundancy notice period is necessary. there is still 4 weeks left to my redundancy notice to complete and I have found another good job. Do I have to serve the full period or can I ask to be excused from this period?

    Hi friend

    You surely should complete the whole notice period before you take up your new job. But of course if the new job you have found now is very good indeed and will help you to build up a brighter future then of course you should not let go of this opportunity and dont let it pass by. First of all it would be better if you ask your new employers regarding your problem.Tell them that you are required to serve 12 months of notice period in your previous company and of that 4 months is still remaining.So tell them that you will be able to join this job only after 4 months when you have completed your notice period.

    Your new company may agree with you and thus delay your joining .But in case they want an employee immediately for that particular post, then you should take some action in this case as soon as possible and dont delay it. Talk to your current company's manager and ask him to relieve you right now as you have got a very good job indeed and thus dont want gto miss this chance as it wil be very good for your career.Also as your company already knows your condition after making you redundant they may sympathesize with you and thus leave you before completion of your notice period. Also tell him that you are even ready to pay any compensation for the same.

    Thus I really hope that you will find a solution to this matter from either your previous or new company and will get the new job soon. Dont worry friend. These redundancy problems are really common now-a-days due to the problem of recession hitting our country hard. So dont worry and have self belief. Good luck. Thanks
