Notice period debates
There's a big debate that I missed as I was offline, on whether an employee is obliged to served the notice period.
Rashmi has her views here and Vulturo's is here.
My take is that yes current Indian systems are biased in favour of the employers.
As the balance of power continues to shift in favour of the employees, the rule for notice period will become more and more like the US where there is a 15 day notice period, and the employee is under NO obligation to serve it.
Of course, the employer is free to fire you without a day's notice too.
As the Indian workplace evolves and becomes segmented according to industry a lot of these useless rules will wither away and die.
Amen to that.
