Re: Handing your notice in after the notice period

Basically you shouldn't give the impression you don't intend to fulfill your contractual obligations, and quit according to the notice period on your contract.

However if you ask nicely most employers in these troubled times will let you go early especially if you have 3 months to go.

The agreement after you serve notice on when you are leaving is confirmed by the retirement confirmation you get from HR shortly after quitting.

If you state in your letter you'd like to be released by date x, you may find they confirm you may in the confirmation as that is the document showing what both parties have agreed to.

Just ask. A few years ago I successfully reduced a month from my notice period. Besides they realize you'll be much more professional during a mutually agreed shorter period.
