Hello All, I am working on changing policy for notice period. Would like to know the notice period duration within various IT MNCs..
Dear Sumit, The notice period would vary with the grade & position of the employee. However, the standard norm followed by most organizations is 30 days.
Dear Group Members, What action should an employer take if an employee leaves without any notice period or notice pay during the probation period. Even when his/ her signed appoitnment letter mentions that "during probation period, in the event of resignation or termination of service either side will have to give 30 days notice or 30 days basic salary in lieu thereof" What is the best procedure to follow- should we send a letter highlighting the above and asking for compensation. A ready format if available will really help. Also, from the legal point of view how can we proceed? Looking forward to your help in this regard.
Dear Mr. Krishna,
As per my understanding , an employer can't send any letter for compensation. it is also not clear from your statement for how many days the employee worked with your organisation.
Moreover , Its not a case of termination or resignation. the Employee is absconding . What you can do is just send him a warning letter first to report on duty. After that show -cause-notice( It also depends upon states rule and standing orders of your organization that for after how many days of absentism you send a letter, Normally its after 10 Days) and finally a termination letter. you can deduct the amount from his bonus ,for can hold the salary of that month etc. and ask him for Full and final settlement.
In case the employee chairs a critical position, such that his/her uninformed exit leaves the organization in a mess, one thing you can do is to black list such a candidate for your company and group of companies.
