I could do with some advice as soon as possible really...here is the situation...

I handed my notice in on Monday, my notice period is one week. Today the boss found out where I was going, to an ex-client who he has fallen out with, and he wasn’t happy. His words that are bothering me were:

“You know a lot about the company, if anything happens, you don’t have money or a house I can go after, so as my father says, the law of the land lies”

To me that is a threat, my manager told me it wasn’t and that I had misunderstood it, however when I asked her how she understood it she changed the subject.

I have two days left of my notice period, however with this threat I do not really want to continue with it. Do I have grounds to leave without completing my notice period? Is there anything I can do to leave now without breaching my contract?

Thanks again

Hi Rick,

Horrible situation you are in it's a shame when people get nasty, it's not necessary.


Can only suggest options i would be considering....


1. I would definitely go in to work.


2. I would think of telling my new boss. (If you do this in careful way, i.e. that you are loyal employee & would never do such a thing, might make new employer respect you ?)


3. Try and record any further intimidation, on mobile or like or make notes immediately.


4. Make sure there are always co-workers close by to witness anything.


5. Tell old employer you had no intention of divulging anything to new employer, but this behavior is making you reconsider.


Good luck, at end of day if it's too bad on Thursday.. call a sickie on Friday and chill before starting new job.
