Sometimes we are in a situation where we get a good job opportunity but we stuck due to the notice period with the present employer. In general notice period will be in between 1 month to 3 months. If you are also facing the similar situation then you need to write a letter of request for early release.

How to Request Early Release from Notice Period

There are two ways to request early release from notice period. The first one is buying out your notice period from your present employer and the second one is negotiating with your employer for early relieving.

Resignation Letter with Request to Reduce Notice Period

Buying out the notice period

  • Every company has a policy of notice period for relieving the employees. So during the recruiting time, they will tell the employees about notice period and employees can find the details about the notice period in their appointment letter.
  • Some companies may take a bond agreement. So in this case, some companies may mention in order to relieve early you need to pay some amount to the company. If your company accepts that then just pay the amount and join in your new job.

Negotiating with the employer for early relieving

  • In most cases, you can get early relieving by having a proper negotiation with your employer, but this completely depends on your relationship with your top management.
  • So have multiple discussions with your HR and managers and request them for early relieving.

Sub: Request for early relieving

Dear Sir / Madam,

This is a kind of request regarding my early relieving from the company. I know that I agreed to the company terms and conditions regarding the notice period during my joining time. But there are some situations are making me to write this request letter to reduce my notice period to 10 days from 30 days. Because I got a new job in my hometown with some better salary package and they wanted me to join within 10 days.

I promise you that I will finish all the pending works and I will cooperate with you in transferring my duties to other employees. I hope you understand my situation and expecting a positive response from your side because it will help in my rest of career.

Thanking you.

Regards,

___________(Your name).
