Hello Alex - when you are ready.
I am not happy and therefore would like to leave as soon as. I want to give notice but not as long as 3 months.
If they want me to work the full 3 months - what options do I have - can I force to leave with shorter notice or use my unused holiday?
I have a senior position but my work does not affect the day to day operations and if I am not there (due to leaving early) they cannot easily show a loss to the operations - can they still justify loss to them, even if my position was new and they may not need the same replacement.I do not have any mid-way projects or assignments which would incur a loss due to my non presence.
Am I legally bound to say where I am going (even if I am not going in the same trade - ie no trade conflict).
Does it matter if I am working half my notice period ie notice period 3 months less 28 days holiday which means I only work the balance 1 and half months?
Thanks Alex - please give me feedback on my next question on working only half the notice period.
I have 2 job offers - and one is in the same industry and a competitor - which means I have a conflict. Therefore am I legally bound to say I am joining the competition - and do I have to name them ? or can I simply say that there is a conflict and to release me asap. I have not accepted either of the job offers - as I am not sure how I can leave early as both require me to start as soon as and 3 months would mean that they will go for the alternative candidates.
So I do not have to declare where I am going? but simply say "i would like to leave immediately as I am joining the competition ? If this is an issue - I might as well take the other job.
I do not have a "no competition" clause in my contract - but I know there is always an issue when someone has left to join the competition - they have been sent on garden leave for their notice period.
I am almost finished.
Any advice from you - my employer is difficult to deal with and won't let me go early and I need to leave early but only work a short notice period of say 1 month. I know he does not negotiate and easy to deal with. The only thing I have is my unused holidays of 28 days.
this has been very helpful and thanks for your advice - last question - knowing the above detail would you be able to send me a draft resignation template so that I can use this to type my resignation letter and hand this (email) in tomorrow. My email address is already provided when I signed in.
I guess I will use your advice and points mentioned above to draft one and hope for the best.
It is with great reluctance that I submit this letter of my resignation. Although my period of employment with xxx has been, on the whole, a satisfying one, but for a considerable time now I have become less satisfied with my work situation. The new role I have been assigned to and the methods and support in performing my duties are making it increasingly difficult for me to be able to fulfill my responsibilities adequately. Therefore it is with regret that I ask you to accept my resignation with effect from today xx Sept. I have 28 days of leave to take and I want to make my last working day as 1st Nov. ....Yours sincerely.... - how do you see the above - anything wrong or should I change anything?
Hello Alex - are you there for this last question?
