I am working in a company for past three years and my appointment letter says one month as notice period. After sometime i have received an email communication telling my notice period changed to two months and it doesn't came with any condition, its one way communication. I never accepted this via email.
Now I wanted to resign but the HR people are telling my notice period as 2 months. My appointment letter as no such conditions. Can I fight this in labor court ?
Will this work on my favor if i go to court ?
Urgent please , i don't want to miss another offer
As per your situation let me tell you than an employee can only extend his notice period if he wishes so, otherwise an employer has no right legal right for extension of notice period against the wish of his/her employees.
Yes, you should proceed to file a case in labor courts as you have valid reasons and urgency.
Below is the email i received some times back. i have replied telling that i am not agreeing on a two months notice period. Now they are telling the notification has been sent already regarding this. Is this applicable even if i disagree ? don't we have right to reject or accept ? please advise
"In furtherance to the Appointment Letter issued, we would like to inform you that there is an amendment with reference to clause 5.1 that your notice period has been extended for 2 months instead 1 monthas per the notification received from the client"
