    Notice period being shortened by a week

    I am working in a software company. Recently I resigned from my job due to some differences with the manager. Now I am serving my notice period. But just few days back our company has amended the rules regarding the notice period and now the notice period has been shortened by 1 week. I have been told to follow the new rules but my friends are advising me to serve the same notice period as earlier because I have resigned much before the new rules have been implemented. I am really in a fix now. What to do in

    You have to follow the new rules advised by the Management
    If they are releasing you one week before than you ahve to accept that
    whenever you resign from the company and are ready to serve the notice period, the management ahs every right to reduce the notice period.
    they can even completely waive off the Notice period.

    So you should work till the new date asked by the management to work.

    Hi aspirant

    You should definitely take the right decision in this case as this might affect your future if you take the wrong decision. As the previous notice period was only a week bigger than the recent one so it won't hurt you to serve a week extra, of notice period and also then your position would definitely be clear and your company won't be able to blame you for anything at all.So its better that you listen to your friends and thus do as they say so that you don't get into any kind of legal trouble later on.


    The second option for you is to go and talk to your manager and clear this matter with him. Tell him that you have been serving your notice period since a long time. But recently the rules regarding the notice period have changed and now the duration of notice period required to be served by the employees has been reduced by 1 week. So you wanted to know that whether you have to serve the same duration of notice period as earlier or you have to serve the new duration according to the new rules. You are here to ask this as you don't want to get into any legal trouble later on.

    Take this from your manager in writing and then I am sure your problem will be solved. Good luck and Thanks

    Dear,
    You are confused about how long you need to serve longer or shorter one. Then do the following.

    1. Discuss with your management about the matter.
    2. Tell them the issue of being resigned much earlier.
    3. If they understood and consider the longer period then serve longer else serve with shorter notice period.
    4. As you have resigned you must have chosen or searching for jobs.
    5. So it is better to accelerate the searching process.
    Bye take care.

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

    Its up to you which rule you will follow.
    But you have a option to follow any rule as you resigned earlier.
    No company can bind you to follow new rules.
    If you wish to follow new rules then only follow it.
    Make sure that you are in a safe mode.

    If needed you can also challenge company in court .
    You will have a favor point that you resigned before.

    Thanks

    Dear friend since it was your decision to resign you should not make it more late to leave the work.

    Because you sahll be keen in the eyes of your boss during notice period .

    And it is better to ave less notice period than the longer one.

    But you you may if wish can ask you boss as you had resigned earlier provide the notice period that was provided to you earlier.

    But again it is better to leave now.

    Best of luck for your career.

    regards,

    Adityamahan

    Dear in this situation you should do whatever good for you means you have resigned from your job before the implementation of new notice period rules in your company that is why you will have to complete your notice period according to the old rules when they were active during your resignation and what you are loosing in serving your company for one more week but dear you should complete your notice period well because these are your last days in the office premises and you should try to leave a better image in the office premises because once you will go out of this company you will never come back that is why you should prove yourself best in the office and complete your notice period according to the old rules

    All the best

    Dear Aspirant,

    you must have patience to survive in this world.You can not get & do as you like.See the manager is like your guardian who might have helped you a lot in learning many practical things during your job which may be very useful to you.Of course,It is very common to develop differences between you & others who may be your near & dear also.But it is not the solution to be away from each such person.

    However,my view of advicing in such way is not to stick to a particular company.You are free to change your profession/company provided you get better prospects.You may be aware that the services are governed by the terms & conditions of the appointment letter & it is generally mentioned that the terms & conditions are generally changeable from time to time which is applicabe to you also.I mean the employer has the right to change the notice period which are supposed to be followed by you also.

    The notice period is served in order to resign from the service from a particular date.Here you have mentioned that you have already resigned from the service,which does not seem correct.You might have given the notice period to resign from the service.If you can not work there,follow the rules of the employer & get relieved off well with experience certtificate & settlement of all accounts.Your friends won't help you in this regard.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Hi friends,

    I think Act futures demands of the employer must pay an employee for his/her notice period if the employer does not want the employee to serve/work his or notice period .
    The company may requires that the employee leave prior to the completion of the notice period.

    so you have follow the new rules and advice.
    I think you should definitely work in your company read to serve notice period.
    I think minimum notice period of the employee has been employed for:
    Six month or less, one week's notice is required.
    one year or more, four week's notice is required.

    So you should complete serve of the notice period.
    you should ask the your joining date your manager.

    So keep focus to the your work.

    Thanks!!!

    ALL THE BEST..............
