Salary claim

Posted by Ashok Sharma

Hello All.

I was working in a MNC in kolkata. My company has a notice period of 2 months. The offer letter also states: 2 months notice or at Management's discretion.

I served notice on 01.09.2015 and asked for an early release. I had to join another company by 30th Sep' 15. I had requested my company for the early release both verbally and in writing. I had also agreed to pay them the amount for shortfall in notice. All were in written. But my company had asked me to serve the full notice period.

I finally decided to stop going to office and on 29th sep I had send them email informing that I will not come from next day. I also submitted all the company provided assets to the HR with receipt. I was not paid the salary for sep. My company pays on 30th every month and mine was blocked.

When I stopped going, they sent me absconding letters to come to office and serve the balnce period of notice. But I emailed them that I will not be able to come.

Finally they issued a termination letter and asked me to come and complete the exit formalities. I went there on the given date and completed the exit formalities. I requested them to complete my full & final payment.

Now, they had sent me a letter where they had adjusted the amount in lieu of short notice period with the salary of September and also asked to come and pay some more amount.

I replied to them that since I was issued termination letter and not the relieving letter, then why am I liable to pay the short period amount. Instead I asked them for the salary of the 29 days of September that I had worked.

Can any one help me?
