    Default Giving notice

    My daughter has been offered a job as a PCSO, her training is to start on the 8th of January.

    For the past 2 weeks she has been trying to hand in her notice but kept getting 'we are busy at the moment, we will get back to you tomorrow' and as you know tomorrow never comes.


    I told her to just print off a short letter...I am giving notice from..... and hand it to her department manager which she did on Friday, but she is worried that they are going to make a fuss and try to stop her finishing for the 8th of Jan! She is worried that no one has got back to her, also she is unable to contact HR as they have all been split up to different sites, due to the asbestos problems they are having in the main building!

    As she handed in her letter of resignation in time can they try and make her work after the 8th?

    Hi Sparks.

    Following your PM, I've moved the thread to the employment section of CAGicon. People should be along to advise later.

    What does your daughter's contract say about resigning please?

    Thanks Honeybee

    I believe it just says to give 1 months notice, they did try to say she had to give 2 months but when she checked her contract it says 1 month!

    Well if she'd like advice on resigning, it would be in your daughter's interest to give us enough information to advise appropriately.

    The employer can't stop her giving notice !!!

    If she handed in the letter on 8 December, and her contract said 1 month's notice, then her employment contract will come to an end on 8 January.

    The employer can't make her work longer. The employer can ask her to work longer but she does not have to agree.

    Perhaps it would be sensible for your daughter to keep a copy of the letter she handed to her manager. If anyone queries her finishing date she can simply show them a copy of the letter.

    There is no way she can work for them after the 8th, her training starts then for 6 weeks and has been told she can bnot miss even 1 day of the training.....her new job is a PCSO

    We can't change the law for her. Her notice period ends on 8th January. If she leaves a day earlier it is unlikely the employer will sue her, but nobody here can give that guarantee. She should have handed in her notice when she originally intended to - but hindsight is a wonderful thing. There's no such thing as too busy to accept notice. You write your notice, date it, sign it, hand it over. End of story.
