Hi I work as a regional valuer for a fast selling property

Customer Question

Hi
I work as a regional valuer for a fast selling property company. I signed my initial contract 18 months ago which stated one weeks notice. I now want to leave I handed my notice in last Saturday and understood my last working day was today. This evening I have the owner of the business threatening to sue me if I don't work 8 weeks notice? about 6 months ago we were sent literature about increasing the notice period but because I thought it was unreasonable I wouldn't sign or agree to it. He is now telling me that I emailed him saying I agreed to it which is ridiculous as I wouldn't agree to an increase of notice . I am very conscious to do everything as I should and this is causing me an immense amount of distress he is threatening to sue me for £90,000 I have a young family and this will definitely be keeping me awake tonight. When I handed my notice in last Saturday he verbally agreed to one week but only this evening when I emailed him a good will greeting has he responded in such a way. Please Help. Pete
