I was working in a startup company in Bangalore. I worked there for one year.
After one year, I got a better job opportunity from a new company. Initially, the new company wanted me to join early.
Accordingly, I resigned from the startup company and requested them to release me early but the management didn't accept my request and told me to serve a full notice period of one month as per the company's policy. I agreed to their request and planned to join the new company when my notice period in the old company was over. The new company fixed my joining accordingly.
While I was serving my notice period, suddenly after 12 days the HR manager informed me that we are considering yesterday's date as your last working day and you are relieved. You are requested to submit the office laptop.
This sudden discontinuation of my employment left me jobless / without any work till the time I would join another company. This will be a huge loss of salary (of 18 days) for me and I would not be able to pay my EMIs.
I mailed my HR about this but there was no reply from them.
The major events with dates are given below:
