    Working Notice Period and Going on Sick

    Working Notice Period and Going on Sick 16th Aug 17 at 3:35 PM
    Hi

    Need some opinions please, really not sure what to do.

    I have worked for my company for 8 months. They are relocating about 30 mins away in Nov and I have decided not to move with them so found another job locally which I start on 18th Sept.

    I handed my notice is on 15th Aug and asked to finish on Fri 8th Sept, (3 weeks notice) however they have said no and I need to work until Fri 15th Sept, they have put this in writing to me.

    I really would like a week off before I start my new job. How wrong would it be to have a week on the sick.

    This is something I have never done before and would like some opinions.

    Thank you in advance for your replies.

    Hi All

    Quick update. I trained the new person as much as possible to do my job. Did everything I could to help the team in an upbeat positive attitude, but when I asked the question last Thur if I could finish on the Friday, they still said no I was needed this week, just in case!!!!!

    Worked 2 days, so far, with nothing to do, except browse the web, as the new person is doing my job extremely well, thanks to my training. It is so annoying, as me and OH could of had a cheeky week away. Oh well it is what it is.

    I have not asked the new company to delay start, as thought that was unprofessional.

    Thanks all for the replies.
