Not serve notice period

  • 2 Answers

Hi, I just want to confirm if an employee does not want to serve notice period for 30 days and ready to pay for the days not served, can he leave the company before the last date of notice and can be eligible for the Relieving/Experience letter. However in his appointment letter it is mentioned that acceptance of payment in lieu of notice and the issue of the relieving order is at the Company's discretion. Please advice.

If an employee does not want to serve notice for 30 days you could simply lay off the employee on the last day of notice thanks have. A great day

Notice Period (NP) is the time period between the receipt of the letter of dismissal and the end of the last working day.  This NP depends upon the terms of individual employment contracts and is mandated via a specific clause in the employment deed. However, an employer cannot force an employee to complete the required NP; but if the employee fails to comply with the NP terms then the employer is not bound to pay the dues, perks or incentives to the employee. Moreover, depending upon the terms of the contract, legal liability may arise against the employee in the form of compensation for the damages or loss caused to the employer due to the employee’s failure to complete the NP.
