Refusing Technical Resignation
Facing a problem with joining an autonomous body of government of India? Wondering if one organization can refuse a technical resignation? You can check out the responses from our experts here.
I had taken NOC from my previous employer while applying for the new job.
However, the previous employer didn't accept my resignation from previous job as "Technical resignation" citing the reason that I was in probation period and yet to be confirmed. So, technical resignation won't apply to me.
The new employer is refusing pay protection and benefits of past service, since the resignation at old employer wasn't mentioned as "technical resignation".
My question is..
1. Is my old employer correct that 'technical resignation' cannot be granted during probation period, even if I had applied through proper channel and taken NOC from the employer while applying for the new job?
2. Is the new employer correct that just because the previous employer didn't mention "technical resignation", I won't get the benefit of past service / pay protection.
Please note that both the employers are autonomous organizations under the Government of India.
