Terminated – 3 mnts notice given, can I work at new company?

My services have been terminated by my company and have been issued a termination letter with 3 months notice. Now I’ve got a new job offer and they want me to join within a month; can I join the new employer immediately given this situation? Kindly advise.

Name withheld

Answer: The three-month notice period given to you is for your good but if you don’t want to take advantage of it, you can forego it upon a mutual agreement with your current employer. You can therefore seek audience with the employer or write officially to him informing him of your intention to forgo two months of the 3-month notification period. We believe the employer will not stand in your way since he wants you to go anyway.
