two and half months. we would could potentially suffer financial loss from failing to deliver work we have received. We act for clients on a recurring basis dealing with payroll, tax returns.
It will take a replacement atleast three to four months to settle in.
Trained staff are generally not available or need to be paid 50% more. The individual employed is 20 years old and is paid £8ph plus 28 days annual leave.
He is die to go on vacation next week for two week and wishes to work remaining week and leave.
The individual has just e mailed to say has thought about it and wishes to leave on 21st August but is willing to leave earlier if so required.
I am concerned of the impact on other staff and wondering whether it may be best to let him leave immediately and pay whatever pay and accrued holiday is due on proviso he agrees.
Am I at risk of later being sued for wrongful dismissal.
