Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long is your notice period?
Thank you. You can give notice at any time but if you do not work your notice period, then you would be acting in breach of contract. The issue is that if you were to resign now and give 4 weeks notice, you would continue being employed for that period of time and during that time your employer could still continue with the disciplinary process and even dismiss you before the end of the notice period. An alternative is to approach the employer and negotiate for an immediate release where you give up your right to notice and leave immediately and they agree to drop the disciplinary against you
