Dear All,

My name is Kamesh and am working in a small consultancy right now. I got an offer from company in the first week of April and I put in my papers formally to get relieved on May 7th 2011 (May 9th is the joining date). With just one week left for the joining, they are trying to speak about assignments and are keeping me more tight. My prospective employer is known to have a very thorough background check.

In the occasion of me not gettin relived formally, would there be adverse consequence??

The fact is that, I have served my 30 days notice period as per the clause in my appointment letter

Also my prospective employer wants me to send them a letter from my reporting manager giving confirmation on my relieving date, which they are little laid back to give. Am worried as this is a dream job which I had been waiting for.

Please suggest ways in which i can smoothly handle the situation.

Regards,
Kamesh

Welcome to the Ranch.

If I were you
1) I would update my new manager on exactly what is going on
2) I would provide documented proof of my resignation letter

If you appointment letter says 30 days, then legally no one can force you to work one second longer.

Also my prospective employer wants me to send them a letter from my reporting manager giving confirmation on my relieving date, which they are little laid back to give. Am worried as this is a dream job which I had been waiting for.


If your prospective employer really means this seriously, then I think he is naive and I would really reconsider the "dream job" angle.

This is irrational. Never heard of such a thing. No company I know of does this.

It is not uncommon to give extra work to an employee who is leaving but does not mean they would try to hold you back AFTER your notice period expires.
Have another THOROUGH talk with your HR about the last working day.
 
Mo-om! You're embarassing me! Can you just read a tiny ad like a normal person?
