I tried looking online for answers on my current situation but I can't seem to find some concrete ones so I want to ask for your help, may it be your experience or whatever.
Anyway, I filed my resignation last Monday. It's supposed to be an immediate resignation, however, my boss is not very keen with it. He stated reasons to me such as there is an ongoing project, he needs people, etc. But I passed it anyway and he told me that he will be passing it to the HR and talk to me afterwards.
Two days after, another boss talked to me about my resignation. She said that few weeks ago during our talk, she thought I was assuring them that I will not be leaving the company. I did not say that, though. She was just asking me if I want to be transferred to another business unit and told her that I prefer to stay in my group.
So after which, she told me that why is the effectivity of my resignation too soon. That I need to serve a 30 day notice which is the company standard. And I told her that I was supposed to use my leaves to file for a terminal leave since I don't have much turnover to do and that I can finish everything in 2 weeks. She told me this is not allowed even as I have checked my contract, there is no clause stating that. Besides, I need 30days to process my clearance loans and others (But then again, with a system as ours, as in geez, nobody who has resigned has ever had a clearance.) And I know a lot of colleagues who filed for terminal leaves when they resigned from the company.
So the point is they are just holding on to me but even if they'd give me a counter offer, I prefer to leave the company. What do you think is the best thing that I can do about this?
Thank you very much for reading. It's really long but I appreciate your inputs.
