View Full Version : Resigning help.
If I give three months notice in my resignation, as I want to be nice and notleave them in the lurch as no-one else here can do my job can they make me leave eallier than the three months and not pay me as my contract is just a months notice.
I want to be kind as one day I may want to come back and work for this company as i have worked for our director in various companies my entire working life, but come september it will not be financially viable for us really.
Could you talk to your manager about it. Be open and tell them that you plan to leave in 3 months and will be handing in your notice a month before but wanted to give them a heads up so that they can start to make alternative arrangements.
I'd do as Becci suggests - talk to them informally about leaving in three months but don't give official notice until a month before.
I've always tended to talk to my manager about it, then confirm in writing once everything is sorted out. The letter I've written literally just confirms the last day i'll be working in that position.
If you tell them nicely I'm sure they will be ok.
A nice letter / chat with your manager?
Hmmmm my line manager may make it awkward as she can be a bit funny. I my speak to HR informally then. I just didn't want them to be able to terminate my contract quickly.
Its not like i am leaving to o anywhere else, i am leaving sue to a change in circumstances.
Can you speak to the Director you know? Regardless of that though, if noone else can do your job, then it's not in their interests to terminate your contract earlier than the 3 months' notice you plan to give! Do you have reason to suspect they would do that? If you do, then there would be no need for you to be 'kind' to them at all!
I would try and speak to someone tbh just to get clear advice because you are going outside of your contract and #if# they decide to feel narky about you resigning, then they might hold you to the months notice even though you might give 3 months which you are giving out of kindness and 'thoughtfulness' kind of thing.
Just give them the month, anything else you do may cause complications.
Someone I worked with once gave 3 months notice out of decency and had his contract terminated as soon as they found someone else for his job. He was out of work a good 2 months earlier than he wanted to be.
Bluekat's friend's experience is worth bearing in mind! Look after yourself first :nod:
