Hi

If the contract you signed stipulates one month's notice then this is what you should give, however I would advise being honest with your boss and see what agreement you can reach. Good Luck!

Normally the notice period is 1 week for the probationary period. Then it goes to 1 month up until 2 years of service. After that it depends on the company.

When you hand in your resignation letter take a copy (not your orignal) of the memo with you. .

Career Deadlock

Can anyone tell me about their experiences in dead-end jobs? I find I'm faced with a stark choice. Either I look elsewhere for work and incur a nasty salary drop (one thing they do well at my present location is pay, no problems there), or stay in my menial job that by remaining unchanged for over 6 years makes a mockery of everything the company says about itself. I've remained on rung one for far too long, and after discussing this with an independent party, apparently I'm right; management is failing the staff by leaving them locked exactly where they are. Training? Forget it, you might learn something useful. Then you'll leave and then where will we be? Move within the company? No way, you're too useful to us where you are. Promotion? There's no position and we can't just create one. Besides, if you're good, you'll just go causing problems for us managers. One thing you don't want to do around here is rock the boats of the empire-building little department 'captains'.

So, is it worth prodding the hornet's nest and trying to change the mentality of those in charge, or is it that the fast-track to becoming 'compelled to leave'? Anyone who's been through a similar experience, please let me know how things turned out.

Your statutory legal leave notice is 1 week, unlesss it state in your contract that for the first 6 months, whilst in your probation period it is 1 Month. Finally you only need to give them 1 weeks notice, then walk out of there on the last day!

Given Notice After Probation Period

Hi all, I wanted a little advice... I stumbled upon this webste yesterday and thought i'd pick all your brains on this one........

I worked for a well known stationary company and my probation period was due to end on 27 October 05. My manager was away sick for the week so my final probationary review was not held. On Monday she returned to work. On Tuesday she sent me an e-mail saying that due to her being away sick she had talked her manager on Friday and he had agreed to extend my probation for 1 week - her manager never said a thing to me on the Friday and I did talk to him several times.

As 4 days had passed since the "official" probationary end can she do this?

I raised a query about it all unofficially and low and behold I consequently was not kept on - reason stated was "not what we were looking for". I'm not worried about the job it's just the way in which it all seemed to be done in a cowboy manner. Anyone got any thoughts??

Lots of companies breach employment law. It's not worth you doing it but even if you have not got a years length of service if they breached acas rules (www.acas.org.uk) you can do them for unfair dismissal.

Handed in my notice but now i need to stay.

To cut a long story short i handed in my notice 2 months ago. I had to give 4 weeks notice which would have left me leaving at the end of march.

However my new job fell through so the area manager extended my notice for a month.

However now my month is up and they have told me i will be due to leave in 3 days.

Is there anyway i can get out of this? Reason being my wife has been made redundant and money will be tight, With the way jobs are in my region this will effectively ruin my life.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Sorry, but if you handed in your notice, you have no rights in this. Your employer can choose to vary it as a mutually agreed thing (as they did), or even rescind it on a mutual agreement. But there is nothing you can do to force them to agree. It comes down to whether they still want you / still have a job (it may have been promised elsewhere) / whether they will negotiate. The only strategy would be asking! Sorry.

probation periods???

i worked for a company for nearly 3 years and had long passed my probation period but had to leave for personal reasons. 3 months later i was invited to rejoin the company which i did and 2 weeks after i started they claim im in a new probation period. can they do this???

Yes indeed. Probationary periods are not a legal thing - they are custom and practice. But if there is a break in employment you would normally have to serve another probationary period, and increasingly even with continuous employment they are introduced now for new jobs.
