I am a contract faculty at a govt institute.
At the time of joining I had signed an agreement that requires me to obtain NOC before going for any interview. Once I had a call from another institute, I had a discussion with the employer, who consented verbally, but did not give the NOC in writing. I did not insist as well. I cleared the interview. The organization where I went for interview did not have any requirement of NOC, so it was not an issue at all. I tendered my resignation notice (with adequate notice period as per initial contract) through official email, after multiple failed attempts to meet the boss. My resignation notice is yet to be accepted or replied to by the boss, who is visibly angry at me leaving.
1. Can the institute deny me a relief stating that my task is unfinished? I have given adequate notice period to cover the entire term of teaching and evaluation. But there are administrative responsibilities which is never going to end.
2. Can the employer take a vindictive action like terminating me on performance grounds, which is going to hamper my career? Though I have multiple evidences to prove my performance has been good, the employer can still find reasons and areas where I have not delivered adequately.
3. What action should I take at this moment to ensure a smooth exit and transition?
