It is a 12 month contract (9 Dec 14 to 9 Dec 15) and I have worked 10 months of the 12 months. During the latter 6 months (post probationary period) the written notice to be provided by both sides is 3 months.
As such I would be content to received the salary up to the end of my contract period (2 months) as it is not clear whether the 3 months' notice should run beyond the end of the contract period.
Many thanks. Is there any urgency to get the resignation letter in first so that the employer cannot make it appear that they terminated me, or does my resignation letter still hold in the event they first send me notice of termination and I refer back in my letter to my verbal resignation on Friday 16 October? In particular I am planning to send a text to my boss now to confirm he is happy for me to lodge my resignation letter with HR tomorrow - I think this will be helpful in demonstrating that I am following the due and proper process, but I also do not trust him not to use this as a heads-up and somehow spin this against me. Does sending the text now also count as evidence on the record of my resignation? Grateful for a swift response if possible.
Hi, I submitted the letter and the resignation was accepted. However, the employer is only offering to pay the notice period until the end of the term of contract (i.e. the 2 months) rather than the full 3 months' notice period. You say above that the 3 months' notice should be valid even though it goes beyond the end of the contract - how robust is this analysis? Are there specific laws that I can refer to in pushing for the 3 months?
