Re: Termination rules & regulation

I've recently given my 1 month notice to company X (according to my appointment letter which I signed, return and kept a copy to myself)

however, there was a *notice, circulated via email to all employees from HR stating that "from now on, all confirmed employees are to give 2 months notice period of intention to leave a position". and my employer is using it againts me.

* I call it a notice because HR didn't ask to sign the notice to show that we agree and abide the new Termination R&R

My question is:
1. since this email circulation came about after I sign my letter of appoinment, can I have the right to refuse the new rule since I didn't sign any new contract regarding my termination? and to my view, this email is just a notice and not a contract.

2. can my employer use it againts me?

3. How to argue my case?

I think you have a point there. You can argue it that way and let the relevant authority decide.
