Ben Jones :

Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. You would still be expected to work the full shift, unless the employer agrees to release you early. Whether you are insured for that period would depend on the insurance -policy and the wording in there but generally you should still continue being covered until your shift terminates, even if it technically started on the day before. To cover yourself you may request that the employer re-issues your termination letter to specify that it is either after the end of the duties starting on 30 Jun, or that it will end on 1 Jul
