What is Relieving Policy?

Like recruitment, the resignation process also consumes a reasonable amount of time to help employees take off all the liabilities from the organization. No loopholes must be found after your employee leave the organization. It calls for enforcing the resignation process along with a proper formated relieving letter to conclude it. A relieving policy outlines the guidelines to offer a letter absolving the responsibilities of the employees in the organization. It also takes assurance from employees not to disclose any of the confidential information after termination for specific years. Under this letter, the employees are asked to settle their dues from the accounts department, if any. Moreover, it helps the organization regain its belongings from the employees, which can be certain documents, letters, equipment, mobiles, sim-cards, ID, etc.

The letter takes employees’ confirmation on all the above-stated requirements, and it is regarded as an official notification of the end of employment with the organization. Employees can ensure after the appointment of the letter that they are exempted from the duties with the current organization and can be a part of any other organization.
