Manager not relieving

Hi, i have resigned on 28 aug 2017. I am ready to serve 90days notice period also.but after couple of meetings and discussion my manager sent mail on 08 sept 2017 stating that my resignation is not accepted because of business unit planning considering my role for FY 2017-18. I want to join new employer for my growth in career. Manager firmly told he's not gonna give relieving letter if i leave. Please suggest how can i proceed?? Please awaiting healthy suggestions...

If you serve 90 days notice which is in accordance to the terms and conditions as specified in your appointment letter then there is no force in the world who can stop you and you are bound to get releiving letter and F&F settelement as well. 

Your manager is playing psychological games and technically and legally he cannot stop you from persuing other options. 

Relax. Do maintain all email communications as records.

Thanks for your reply Rajesh. I am workiing in an IT firm. If I will take legal action then will it mark anything bad on paper??



Hi Subrata, Evan I am from IT !!!!!!

No need to go legal. Tell him that if he does not releive on the LWD then you may have to resort to Labour court. Bring this into notice of HR Deptt. Record all emails as evidence. 

Even after all this if they really dont releive you on the LWD approach the labour court
