Without coming across as a ****, a contract of Employment works both ways mate, proper notice etc, breach of contract etc. 1 week notice, your sound.........however do a one and you could be on a 'Sticky Wicket'.

You should make it clear to your employer that you are formally resigning. You can give your resignation verbally, unless your contract of employment says otherwise. However, it's always a good idea to put it in writing, saying:
•how much notice you are giving
•what your last day will be

If you want to explain your reasons for resigning, putting it in writing will make it easier to organise your thoughts.

Give your employer the right amount of notice. By law, you must give one week's notice if you have worked for your employer for a month or more. Your contract may demand longer.

Remember that:


•your resignation can't be taken back, unless your contract allows it, or your employer agrees
•you will get your final pay on your normal pay day unless your contract says differently - you don't have the right to ask for it any earlier
•as long as you have given notice in accordance with the terms of your contract, your employer must accept your resignation

What is an employment contract?

An employment contract, or ‘contract of employment’, is an agreement between an employer and an employee which sets out their employment rights, responsibilities and duties. These are called the ‘terms' of the contract.


Your employment contract doesn’t have to be in writing. However, you are entitled to a written statement of your main employment terms within two months of starting work.

The employment contract is made as soon as you accept a job offer. If you start work it will show that you accepted the job on the terms offered by the employer, even if you don’t know what they are. Having a written contract could cut out disputes with your employer at a later date, and will help you understand your employment rights.

You and your employer are bound to the employment contract until it ends (usually by giving notice) or until the terms are changed (usually in an agreement between you and your employer).

I've read all the crap off adviceguide.org but the fact that I have nothing in writing and they have no signature off me must stand in my favour?

Whether it's right or wrong, Paddy is correct, you must be aware of these rules when it comes to cases like these so they can't spin rules on you. If you are fully clued up on what the score with the law is you are in a much stronger position and they will be less likely to try rip you off.

beware of hanging on to firms van, if employer reports you to police for "driving without the owners consent" you have not a leg to stand on and the insurance will be invalid in most cases as you are no longer an employee of the company (block Insurance).

I know it can work in some cases but in others you will end up in a heap of sh*t :worried:

Honestly. Every firm that wanted to send me for it i jacked first. Dont remember what film but I AM NOT A NUMBER. When you got advanced scaffs asking how to do jobs then somethings wrong. In my eyes i was taught by one of the best (Ken Dixon RIP) and he told me from the start if you want to learn, listen and you will or fcuk off now. As far as im concerned i know what i can do and dont ned a bit of paper to tell me. I havnt got a marraige certificate but i know shes my wife.
