Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Will you be returning to work at all?
Thank you. Resigning whilst on sick leave is no different to resigning at any other time and the main thing you need to do is follow any specific requirements on resignation detailed in your employment contract. So if it means submitting a notice in writing, to a specific person, then that is what you need to do.
It is entirely possible for you to spend the notice period on sick leave if needed, as long as it is backed up by a doctor’s note.
Does this answer your query?
You are not legally obliged to give reasons for leaving you can keep it as simple or as detailed as you wish
All the best
