I am switching jobs and I have a 3 months notice period at the current workplace. My future new employer wants me to join with in 45 days.
I have resigned. And I am still negotiating with my current company for lesser notice period. My company states that it is not fair to leave early. I understand. Many have left in the same way with shorter notice period. There is a rule in the contract that I have to pay for the remaining term of notice period if I want to quit early.
How can i with my conscience handle the statement "this is not fair to leave and also to ask for shorter notice period"?
Clarification 1: I am willing to pay the money. My new employer need not pay. I am only feeling bad to demand my current employer to leave early (not completing full notice period)
