    Notice period has been changed recently

    I am working in a private firm. Just a week ago I have applied for my resignation and only 3 days after that our company changed the duration of notice period from 2 to 3 months. Now they are saying that even I would have to serve 3 months of notice period but I donít think that this is fair since I have applied for my resignation earlier. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hi friend

    I don't think your company should ask you to serve the notice period for 1 month longer as the rules for the same have changed just now but you have resigned much earlier. They should apply the new rules to the employees who give their resignation from now onwards and not to the employees who are already serving their notice period. I am completely with you in this situation and thus sympathise with you completely. Your company should be more responsible and should not be so unfair to its employees. It should not take unnecessary disadvatage of your good nature and thus try to put this extra burden on you. I hope you raise your voice against this and thus get your notice period to its previous duration.

    So to get your right, you should go and speak to your manager. Tell him that you are one of those employees who are in the midst of serving their notice period. Now as the company has changed the notice period rules and have extended it from 2 to 3 months, you don't think these rules must apply to the previous employees who are in the midst of serving their notice period and have already served a part of it. Thes eshould only be for the employees who will give their resignation from now on. So you hope that the company will not force you to serve 3 months notice period otherwise you will be forced to talk to the higher authorities. You hope that they will understand your point and thus take the decision in your favour.

    I hope your manager understands you and thus does not ask you to serve the extended duration of notice period. You should definitely not withstand such injustice and if the manager doesn't agree, you take this matter to the higher authorities.

    Also if you have to fight this case in the court go for it but don't succumb under pressure. This will certainly treach your company a well deserved lesson and I am sure they won't do such a thing to anyone again.Also warn them that if they don't do as you say, you would drag them to court and then their reputation will be affected. Then maybe they will get afraid and thus take the decision in your favour.

    So friend fight till the end till you get justice. Good luck and Thanks

    Hi,
    You are in some kind of critical position.First you have to sent mail to concerned authority clearly about your date of resignation and attach one soft copy of your resignation form to that mail and also attach the changed notice form to the mail.Explain your problem clearly you have the 100% rights to go.If the rules changed then it will apply to employees who are applying resignation after the time of changed notice.you should speak to your boss or concerned authority.

    Dear Aspirant,

    The services of the employees are governed by the terms & conditions of the appointment framed by the company/Govt.The company/govt.The company/govt.reserves the right to amend the terms & conditions time to time & is applicable to all the employees working there.In the case of notice period,it varies from 1 to 3 months.The purpose of the notice period is to settle all the financial accounts pertaining to the out going employees.

    Now your case seems to be a matter of dispute.Try to convince the manager HR logically & if he is convinced,then it is alright otherwise you should accept it in order to be relieved off from duty properly & get the experience certificate & accounts settled in time.Meanwhile request the new employer to extend time as per your time required to get relieved off from the present employer.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    How your company can do this means when you have already signed for the notice before the increment in the notice period then you are not responsible to serve exceeded period and as for as my views are concerned that you should go to your boss directly and ask them that why are you doing this when i have already going to complete my previous signed notice soon and if you want me to work for more time then i will not serve and tell them that you have got the job in another company and you have to join that company in few days so that you are unable to complete the exceeded notice period and you have the authority to take a legal action against your company but only after when you have a previous notice which you have signed before this current notice and you can file a complain against this and make a legal case but it would not be good for your image because after this you will find out another job and this may affect your career in future so that if possible then you should try to solve the complete matter with understanding each others and request your boss to not to exceed the notice period

    All the best

    hello friend,
    i think you should not puzzle up your mind. if you have given your resignation letter before the change of policies of your company then you can easily get the resignation confirmed. you can take help of your seniors. they will definitely help you. In case you are not given attention then you can file the case in consumer court. as soon as you'll file a case , it will shaken the company's seniors regarding good will of company. so i think you will be confirmed about you resignation
    regards
    your friend

    I don't assume your company ought to raise you to serve the notice amount for one month longer because the rules for a similar have modified just however you've got resigned a lot of earlier. they must apply the new rules to the workers UN agency provide their resignation from currently ahead and to not the workers UN agency area unit already serving their notice amount. i'm fully with you during this scenario and therefore sympathise with you fully. Your company ought to be felt and may not be therefore unfair to its staff. It mustn't take unnecessary disadvatage of your disposition and therefore attempt to place this further burden on you. I hope you raise your voice against this and therefore get your notice amount to its previous length.

    Therefore to induce your right, you ought to go and speak to your manager. Tell him that you just area unit one in all those staff UN agency area unit within the thick of serving their notice amount. currently because the company has modified the notice amount rules and have extended it from a pair of to three months, you do not assume these rules should apply to the previous staff UN agency area unit within the thick of serving their notice amount and have already served a locality of it. Thes eshould solely be for the workers UN agency can provide their resignation from currently on. therefore you hope that the corporate won't force you to serve three months notice amount otherwise you may be forced to speak to the upper authorities. You hope that they're going to perceive your purpose and therefore take the choice in your favour.

    I hope your manager understands you and therefore doesn't raise you to serve the extended length of notice amount. you ought to undoubtedly not face up to such injustice and if the manager does not agree, you're taking this refer the upper authorities.The services of the workers area unit ruled by the terms & conditions of the appointment framed by the company/Govt.The company/govt.The company/govt.reserves the correct to amend the terms & conditions time to time & is applicable to any or all the workers operating there.In the case of notice amount,it varies from one to three months.The purpose of the notice amount is to settle all the money accounts relating the out going staff.

    Currently your case looks to be a matter of dispute.Try to win over the manager time unit logically & if he's convinced,then it's alright otherwise you ought to settle for it so as to be alleviated faraway from duty properly & get the expertise certificate & accounts settled in time.Meanwhile request the new leader to increase time as per it slow needed to induce alleviated faraway from the current leader.

    Additionally if you've got to fight this case within the court select it however do not succumb besieged. this can actually treach your company a well merited lesson and that i am certain they will not do such a issue to anyone once more.Also warn them that if they do not do as you say, you'd drag them to court so their name are going to be affected. Then perhaps they're going to get afraid and therefore take the choice in your favour.
