If your appointment letter says that you can exit the company by paying for non serving notice pay or for the difference of non serving notice pay, it should be legally ok to exit the company and the company can't stop giving all the clearance as required as under law if everything is as per agreed terms and conditions. Handover all company property, pay ...

Tell your potential new employer what happened. Show them your proof. Ask them what you should do. If they're willing to back you up against your current employer, you should have no problem.

I am also from India. I think we could withdraw our resignation as far as i know(at least in my previous company). You would need to check your company policies thoroughly.

As others have pointed out, it would be better not to have given notice until you had a (contractually binding) offer with a start date. You need to mitigate this problem. Start by informing the new company that if they can't give you a contract now with a specific start date (even if it's not immediate), you will need to reconsider joining them, and you'll ...

Your employer is probably looking for a replacement already, what he needs is: a) someone to fill the gap after you leave. this could be you. b) someone to do your job for a long time. that's what they are recruiting. c) someone to do other jobs. that's what you express interest in your question. what I would offer is to get a significant increase in ...

Since you mention insurance coming with the job, I assume this is USA. The lack of definite start date I interpret as a risk that the offer will be withdrawn, followed by no employment and no insurance during an epidemic for a long time. Since your employer is willing to up your salary, but you are leaving due to the nature of the work, I recommend trying ...

They said that they want to push the start date by 2 or 3 months. They didn't give a definite date. This is untenable, stay with your current employment if possible. My current employer asked if I'd like them to reconsider my current salary. I said no to this, because the reason for quitting was not so much salary as the nature of my work. Reconsider ...

Since I'm on notice, I will be jobless in a month. What do I do in this situation? You are in a difficult spot. You need to choose one or more of the available options based on your personal circumstance, your career plans, and your specific financial situation. Reconsider if you should ask to stay on at your current company Look for a different new job ...

In addition to the other answers, you can just talk to your current employer about extending your notice period, even if you still intend on leaving. They might be happy to do so, because, especially in these chaotic times, they'll have more time to find a replacement for you. Many people hesitate to switch jobs at the moment, so new employees are harder to ...

You gave a months notice. That doesn't mean you are out of a job in a months time. It means you go to your manager asap and ask if you can cancel the notice. Obviously the timing is really bad, but the chances are not bad. If I was your old employer, and slightly hard nosed but not too bad, I might offer to cancel your notice, same salary, if you sign a ...

My current employer asked if I'd like them to reconsider my current salary It means your current employer values you significantly – it takes significant time to train new employees and allow them to settle in the team/workplace. Assuming you didn't burn any bridges when you turned them down earlier, the smart thing to do here would be to save your own ...

The way I see it you have two options: Dig your head in the sand and wait until your country goes into lockdown (it will come) Try to get this sorted before that happens If you dig your head into the sand and just wait for it to happen you'll be totally unprepared for it and will find it really hard to actually work. If you get all this sorted (remote ...

The way I view it is simple. If you don't trust someone to work from home, how do you trust them to work in an office ? Yes there are distractions at home, but there are in the office too. I'm personally more productive when at home as people can't drop my desk for little favours with MS Excel. Also this situation is very different to the norm, so allow ...

It depends. Are the trainees able to do their training from home? Do they have the tools they need? Can that still get whatever help or instruction they'd be getting from more experienced workers if they were in the office? If working from home does slow down the training can the company / department / team they work for afford it. Same goes for the ...

I have already informed this to higher management and no response has been given yet Ask them again, they have the authority to implement work from home. You obviously don't. There's more to it than just a decision, there's a lot of logistics and security that need to be taken into account. So they may be looking at all the peripherals. This can take time.

You should allow it, and I have two reasons. For one, you risk that somebody will get infected, and the whole company is shut down, without having time to set up WFH. And as a second reason, with trainees/freshers, there is very little reason to keep them in your workplace, they don't cost as much, they are not central to your operation. You are just keeping ...

What shall s/he do in the face of this scenario? This is a very difficult time for all. Some people have not come to terms with the magnitude of this pandemic and so are trying their hardest to deny that it's a problem. They want to go on with their life as normal which is totally understandable. I'm not sure of the measures that India is currently taking ...

You have ample time to prepare, so there is no need for panic (yet) The country of India has currently recorded 73 cases and 1 death (died this morning, a 73-y/o man) and has a population of 1.339 billion, meaning (1 / 1 339 000 000) * 73 = 0.00000545% of the population has the coronavirus. That's an insanely low number (for the moment). This means your ...

Since the question was clarified in the edit of "how should I frame the apology" I'll answer with my stock answer for apologies: Acknowledge your actions you're apologizing for clearly. Offer up a short, unambiguous apology for that item only. Avoid words that weaken your apology, like "if". Avoid justifying your behavior with explanation. Show you ...

Just apply without any excuses - if they still want you as an intern you'll be fine, if they don't (because the position is already filled or because you ghosted them) an apology (especially medical/family) wouldn't change anything according to my experience.. And a technical excuse such as 'My computer broke down' or 'I forgot the password of my mail-...
