Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long have you worked there?
Hi Ben I want to ask you about the legal rights of the company after my resignation and is there any responsibilities standing after leaving the job
I join the company on 14th of October 2013 and they pay cash salary without any deductions but from Jan 2014 they start paying me monthly after deduction the tax and Ni as well
ok let me get my response ready please
Are you there?
can you please reply of my question
Yes as mentioned please be patient as I am getting my response ready
Once you resign from the company and your employment terminates, you will generally have no further obligations towards them. They will be obliged to pay you any money that is due to you for the time you have worked there, including any holidays you have accrued. Once they have paid you that money and you have officially stopped working for them, then that would usually be the end of the matter.
In terms of taxes, these would be your responsibility so you would need to pay any taxes that are outstanding and which may be due to the tax office. You need to calculate if you are due to pay anything to the tax office and that would depend entirely on your earnings so it is an individual matter that will depend on your personal circumstances.
Any other responsibilities will only be related to fraud or negligence on your part. For example, if the company finds out in the future that you have been negligent with your work and that has caused them losses, they can take action against you for compensation. The same applies if you have been guilty of fraud or theft – they can pursue you for anything you have taken or defrauded them for. But apart from that, the relationship ends as soon as the contract terminates.
Cool did I got my holidays pay after my resignation
You did or you did not?
Sorry what did you mean by your last statement - did I got my holidays pay after my resignation
officially I work for them only for three months and I take only three days off which I got paid I want to know what's my legal holiday entitlement at the time of leaving
I already submit the resignation and my last working day is 31st of March
How many days per week do you work?
You are entitled to 28 days a year. For the time you worked there from Oct to Mar you would have accrued 13 days. If you took 3 then you are still owed 10
no no as I says They put me on their books from January this year only
ah ok, from which date?
ok it is 7 days holiday, and if you took 3 then they owe you 4
but legally i am entitled for 28 days isn'ted
A year, yes
oh ho it means if i leave on march so my entitlement is according to the months which I work
Yes it is calculated in proportion. It is 28 days a year. If you worked there for one month it is just 1/12th of 28. If you were there for 2 months it is 2/12th of 28 and so on
ok Thank you so much for your help if you don't mind can you give me the answer of one more question
I am starting the same business which the company have is there any legal complication arises if I started my own the reason I am asking you because of the clients database which I have with me
ok as this is a separate question I can only give you a brief answer but you need to be careful about taking the actual database with you as that would be company property, although if you just contact clients from memory that would be acceptable.
Thank you so much...
you are welcome
