Payment against notice period

Assalamualaikum sir, I am working in a reputed company. I resigned my position and I want to leave after 50 days and I am ready to pay the remaining 40 days notice period. But my manager is not approving it. Is it possible to leave after paying 40 days due. Or have I to complete 3 months. Please help me so I can proceed.

Answer: Varying the three month notice period does not have to be in the hands of the employee who has tendered in his resignation. It is only the employer who can decide to waive his rights on this issue. You can therefore not force the employer to accept monetary payment in lieu of all or part of the notice period as requested by the Labour Law.
