Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long did you work there for?
Were you initially being made redundant? Also, why did you just leave like that?
Please be patient, you are posting a barrage of messages but each one just resets your question and places it at the back of the queue. If you can just please answer me and then wait then there will be no delays. Also I do have to type up my answer but I am not a typist so it may take a few minutes longer
OK so if you have left with immediate effect and without giving any notice to the employer you cannot expect to be paid for your notice or to get any redundancy. You only get notice pay if you are ‘ready and willing’ to work through your notice period. If you are, the employer can either allow you to work it as normal, or they can decide to send you on your way early but as that is their decision they will have to pay you for the remainder of the notice period. As you are leaving without being prepared to work the notice period, there is no obligation on them to pay you for it. As to redundancy, you would not have been entitled to that anyway as it only applies if your employer is making you redundant, which is not the case here.
In the circumstances, all you can expect is to be paid for your wages up to date of leaving, together with any holidays still outstanding.
Does this answer your query?
Thanks and all the best
Thanks and have a good evening
