If you are in your current job under a year you are not obliged to give 4 weeks notice.. Only one week...

Really! im with new employer only 2 months and also hoping to get out ASAP, says on my contract that have to give months notice so does that still stand or would I get away with one week, it would be great if i did.

Daisey, unless your contract states otherwise, below applies. The legislation sets out the minimum periods of notice to be observed by either side on termination of employment. The amount of notice due to an employee depends on the employee’s length of service:3 Length of Service Entitlement 13 weeks to 2 years 1 week 2 years to 5 years 2 weeks 5 years to 10 years 4 weeks 10 years to 15 years 6 weeks 15 years+ 8 weeks Notice must be given directly to the employee concerned. It is not sufficient to give it to their representative, as this does not discharge the employer’s obligations under the Minimum Notice legislation.

daisy201 Doesnt make a difference what your contract states (even though your hr dept will also say different). Once you are only in a company a certain amount of time. As highlighted in the earlier that is all the notice you are obliged to give..

december07, if u check in your contract it should say if there is a probabtion period usually its a 6 month prob and during that time if u hand in your notice its only a week u have to give , otherwise if after the 6 months are up and u got confirmation that your probabtion is up then u have to give the month , thats what happened to me! god it must be bad after 2 months u want to leave! although i know how u feel , the first day in this job and i should have left, would have saved myself a year of misery
