I submitted a resignation letter on 24.10.2014 and received a reply (acceptance of resignation) from the management on 30.10.2014.

However, I left the company earlier on 11.11.2014 although my last day of employment should be 23.01.2015.

Please advise whether I'm entitled to the salary for Nov to Jan and or bonus year 2014?

Thank you.

1/ By Employment Act 1955 Act 265 you are supposed to pay the company the 3 months "in lieu of notice". You have given the company 3 months notice. Even though the resignation has been accepted, you should have completed what is in the employment contract. This amounts to absconding and can be pursued in a Labour Court of Law. You should have negotiate a early release from the company and be given B&W to leave early.

2/ If bonus is given under your employment contract, should be given after the completion of 12 months continous work. No pro rata basis.

Consider yourself lucky to get away with it.!

Hi there

Since you had left before the expiration of your notice period, the Company can pursue the payment in lieu of the balance notice period. As to your question, you are not entitled for salary for December and January. You are entitled to your 11 days in November which the Company would say that they want to set off with what you owe them for leaving before the expiration of your notice period. Normally bonus is paid to employees who are still in employment and not to those who have left.
