    Notice Period enforceable? 19th May 19 at 5:59 AM
    Wanted some advice.
    I started a new job, and after a few weeks into it, i know its not for me. So i have decided to hand my notice in and asked what my notice period is. I have been told its 3 months??
    I looked at my job offer letter and there is a notice period clause which just says ‘notice period to be confirmed. See terms.’ But I didnt recieve any terms with the job offer letter. And now I have been given a ‘statement of written particulars’ which says my notice period is 3 months (employer says they had up to 2 months to give it to me, so its still within that time frame).
    Where do I stand on this? Any advice?
