In my offer letter the notice period is stated as below
"If you want to leave/resign from the services of the company you will have to serve a 30 day notice of your intention to do so, failing which you will have to pay one months salary in lieu thereof, either of these is by the discretion of the management"
5 month ago, we got a mail from the HR stating that the notice period is extended for 3 months and there is no buyout option also.. We have not signed any where for this. Also they gave us a salary hike. Even in the salary certifiaate there was no mention of the notice period where we have signed anything.
Now my question is
1) I want to walk out of the company . I have served one moth of notice period. Do i need to say for other 2 months.
2) If i am leaving in one month, should the HR team hand over my experience certifcate to me?
Kindly let us know if there are any laws for this . I dont want my company to sue me to serve 3 months of notice period.
