    Handing in notice

    Ok, i've just been offered a new job. Line manager has told me to bring my notice in tomorrow. But my new job doesnt start till september. But if i hand my months notice in that'll take me to the end of july and means i wont have any money over august.

    Basically what im trying to ask is...i dont have to hand my notice in yet as long as i give them a months notice?

    Thanks

    I think you only need to give a MINIMUM of a months notice - you should be able to hand a notice in tomorrow, dated for september...

    Suggests your line manager is pushing you so they can get you out the door and another one in.

    To be honest, you shouldn't even consider handing your notice in until you've received the written offer of employment and checked it out.

    Then, and only then, write your letter of resignation quoting your expected last day of work date and ask that your current employer confirm this date and also handle any accrued holiday etc as in whether they are paid or knocked off of your notice.

    Don't let them push you.

    Right, that's what i was thinking Strawberry.

    Thanks kmount. Was starting to worry.

    I've got about 20 days holiday left. So is that what usually happens with holidays...i get paid for them or i take them off my notice?

    Hi

    What they should do is workout your holiday leave pro-rata - so if your leaving date is 31 augustthey should work out what you are entitled to from the beginning of the holiday year.

    I my case that would be one day per month from april to the end of august.

    Hope this helps.

    It's considered courteous to give them as much time as possible though, after all you don't want to leave on a bad footing. Get written confirmation of your new job and make sure you're happy, then write something along the lines of 'giving my notice with effect from (eg) 31st August and if convenient I intend for this to be my last working day'. They can't start looking at recruiting someone else until you've done that, just in case you change your mind, so giving them an extra four or five weeks looks very good on your part.

    Say you had 24 days holiday entitlement running from 1st April - 31st March.

    If you were leaving 31st August then you'd have accrued 2 days for each month inclusive of April itself so April, May, June, July, & August, 10 days.

    In theory, assuming you had taken no holiday in this year from 1st April you should take 10 days off unless you approach your HR and have this as paid usually on the grounds of needing as much time as possible to perform a successful handover to the new post holder.

    Assuming you are working for an LEA give the payroll department a call and ask their advice. They are poorly paid "sh@t upon" souls like us and they will tell you exactly what the score is. In my experience anyways.

    Good advice never say that you are resigning with out saying "last working day is..." in the letter otherwise school could ask you to leave and stop paying from date of that letter.

    Not that they would as could bring a test case to court over it..

    I handed my notice in last month about 17th June, for leaving 23rd July, you can your notice in now, with a date to leave when you want, it is only the notice of leaving, not your 4 weeks notice.

    Are you moving to another school in the LA?

    If so you'll want to have continuous service with said council so make sure you put your last day working as the sunday before you start on the monday. otherwise you missed the weekend and you don't get continuous service (which is stupid i know because we don't work weekends but that's the way it goes)

    I am.

    Excuse my ignorance. Is continuous service to do with pensions and things?
