I have been working at company X for the last 3 years. I recently received an offer from Company Y, however they asked me to join 1 day earlier than my last working day at Company X.
I tried to negotiate with my current employers, and they have agreed to relieve me 4 days before and will be doing all final exit formalities but they will not change the date on my relieving letter, so it will be 1 day after the joining date. I have tried buyout option as well but they have refused.
What are my options in this case? Is it possible i can join the company Y and then tell them the reason for 1 day difference or should I ask them to let me join but start my joining date 1 day after? I still have 1 month left.
