Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
I am sorry to hear of your situation. What reason have they provided for wanting to change the date of your resignation and how long have you worked there for?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. The employer cannot do what they have proposed to do. You resigned on the 1st and even if they thought that this was done in the heat of the moment, all they have to do is check with you if that was the case and confirm whether the original decision stands or not. If you confirm that it did, then it simply means that the resignation on the 1st is confirmed and continues. It does not mean a new resignation is submitted on the day you confirm the original resignation stands. So you can assume that your employment would officially terminate at the end of the notice period, having started to run on the 1st.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback - it was my pleasure helping you with your query. All the best
