To sum up his thoughts: despite the employee signing a contract of serving a notice period, the person is free to start working for a competitor the very next day.

Why notice period for months? In order to give the company time to recruit a suitable replacement, employees often require to serve longer notice periods. This is especially useful for high-stakes roles or those requiring rare or unusual expertise. In addition, workers can inform new hires about the company's processes and procedures and discuss any ongoing projects and knowledge transfer to new candidates.

Employee resignation should trigger the start of the notice period. A resignation may be accepted after a certain number of days, or it may be delayed for a period of time if the employee's management is out on leave.


A worker's notice period can be shortened if he or she offers the name of a suitable successor, whom the company then hires.

To conclude Even though Notice Period has benefits, the company is able to find a replacement for the vacated position, while the employee serving in Notice Period feels demotivated. Other Companies desire the immediate absorption of the departing candidate into the new position, but the notice period makes it difficult to absorb new talent. Also if an employee have a good relationship with his immediate supervisor and completes his notice period then his/her supervisor will give an appraisal letter.
