My employer's policy on resignation is to render 60 days which I have also signed in the contract. Per my understanding, the company should let you know on your 5th month if you will be regularized or not.
Now, my plan is not to further continue with the company and will only finish my probation period which is 6 months. I have planned to tell this to the company on my 5th month, but when I did, they are saying that I should give them 60 days per policy.
My take is I am not yet a regular employee and the probation period is only for 6 months. Are they saying that I should have told them this on my 4th month? because if that is so, then assessment for regularization should also be done on the 4th month.
My understanding about the probation period is for the company to assess if you are right for the job, hence the company. This should also work for the employee who also assesses himself if the company and the role will meet your needs. And ultimately, either party is free to determine that it's not working out and can end the relationship through the probation period.
Is my understanding correct? thank you for the advise.
