At this this is not the time to question the validity of two months' notice period on the part of the employee as against the one month's on the part of the employer. The present stage is to consider the what you were required to do and what you have done in view of the conditions of appointment letter, which are deemed to have been accepted by you on accepting those terms by joining the organisation.
Further, it all depends upon the language of your resignation letter. However, even if it is presumed that you have given the management 10 days' notice for resignation and you attended the office only for 9 days. The position goes totally against you. At first, you become liable to compensate the company with the salay equivalent to 2 months MINUS 9 days of your working period.
Secondly, the company can take disciplinary action against you for unauthorised absence without having got your resignation accepted and getting yourself formally relieved from your assignment. An employee, once appointed at some job, has to oberve master-servant relations and adhere to some set principles of discipline in the organisation. He cannot act arbbitrarily during his employment.
NOW COMING TO YOUR QUESTIONS:
A. If I resign in probation period do I need to serve complete 2 month notice period as mentioed in appointment letter.
- YES, SINCE YOU ACCEPTED THE TERMS OF APPOINTMENT WITHOUT ANY OBJECTION AT THE TIME OF YOUR JOINING THE ORGANISATION, YOU WERE NEEDED TO SERVE 2 MONTHS' NOTICE FOR RESIGNATION.
B. If I, as mentioned above, leave job in short notice, a I suposed to compensate employer with 1 month salary
- YOU BECOME LIABLE TO COMPENSATE THE COMPANY WITH 2 MONTHS SALARY LESS THE DAYS OF WORK YOU ATTENDED DURING RESIGNATION PERIOD.
C. Will there can be any legal implication on this, as I have received Formal registered Notice from employer.
- OF COURSE, THE COMPANY CAN NOT ONLY RECOVER LEGALLY THE AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE PERIOD SHORT OF NOTICE PERIOD, BUT ALSO CAN SEEK DAMAGES TO BE RECOVERED FROM YOU ON ACCOUNT OF ANY LOSS SUSTAINED TO THE COMPANY DUE TO ANY JOB REMAINING UNACCOMPLISHED DURING YOUR UNAUTHORISED ABSENCE. BESIDES, THE COMPANY CAN ALSO TAKE DISCIPLINARY ACTION AGAINST YOU FOR YOUR UNAUTHORISED ABSENCE AND JOINING SOME OTHER JOB WITHOUT FORMALLY RELINQUISHING THE PREVIOUS JOB.
D. How to revert on this notice received from the employer..
BETTER APPROACH THE COMPETENT AUTHORITY WITH HUMBLE REQUEST TO CONDONE THE NOTICE PERIOD CONDITION TO RELIEVE YOU OF THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE JOB JUST WITH SOME MODERATE COMPENSATION.
