1 month and 1 week

I don’t want a phone call
Expert:  C.Cornel replied 5 days ago.

No need for the phone call, it's merely an automatic suggestion done by the site.


In accordance with your employment agreement and the duration you have been employed, you must give a 2 month notice in writing.


However, I would advise to potentially negociate the duration, as it is slightly excessive, given the amount of time you have been employed.


Thank you.

Even though it says ‘except in the case of probabtion’

Which I’m on 6 months probabtion and I’ve only done one month
Expert:  C.Cornel replied 5 days ago.

Correct, that particular term applies to the company exclusively and not to you, I am afraid.


Thank you.
