Resigning before completing 3 yrs & Indemnity entitlement

This post has been read 4349 times!

I have been working as an engineer with one private company since June 2, 2014. I have been pondering of resigning on May 7, 2017 and would be requesting our office to relieve me in 2 months (i.e. July 1, 2017) from resignation date. Would I be entitled to get indemnity. As I would be resigning before one month short of 3 years of completion but would be completing 3 years at the time of relieving. Appreciate your help.

Answer: At the time of separation you should have completed three years and entitled to payment of indemnity. The catch here however is that you will be going against the labour law if you insist on leaving on July 1 because by that date you have put in only 2 months notice period instead of the 3 months mandated by the law. In that scenario your employer can stand on this breach to deny you the indemnity. We therefore advise that you put in the 3 months notice period in full to prevent falling into problems with your sponsor
