My daughter works University and is nearly at the end

This answer was rated:

My daughter works for a University and is nearly at the end of her 6 months probation. She hates it and wants to leave. She has never signed a contract. The HR Dept say she has to give one month's notice. I think this is wrong. Am I right? Please help
Hello does the contract she was issued with state she must give a month's notice?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
She has never been issued a contract
If she was never issue with a contract then you are correct. A contract, even if unsigned, could have stipulated a specific notice period which she may be bound by but in the absence of such she will only have to give a week's notice which is the minimum legal notice someone who has been working with an employer for over a month must give. So in this case it is a weeks notice unless here was a contract issued which stipulated a longer period, which you have confirmed is not the case.
