Hello, if you resign with immediate effect without your employer's consent then technically you will be in breach of contract.
Your employer will not need to pay you notice pay if you resign in this manner. Technically if you are in breach of contract you can be sued for damages by your employer.
This would only occur if the employer is likely to suffer a financial loss as a result of you leaving early such as losing contracts or work.
It is unlikely that an employer can demonstrate such a loss so this is very much a theoretical risk.
If you have any further questions please ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
Hi he is not entitled to withold notice pay if you do not achieve the tasks he sets you. You would be able to claim unpaid notice in the event he did try to do that.
Yes. As I explained before a claim in breach of contract can be brought at any point a contract is breached. It is only unfair or constructive dismissal claims that give rise to a minimum 2 years service.
