    Giving notice when you've worked there less than a month

    Giving notice when you've worked there less than a month 12th May 18 at 6:32 PM
    As I said in another thread, I've just started work in a day nursery and I'm not enjoying it and am trying to decide whether to stick with it until Sept and then look for a job in Sept (schools) or just cut my losses and leave asap as I think I'm going to have real trouble getting time off work for interviews.
    I haven't signed (or seen) a contract yet. The gov website said that after a month of employment you have to give one week's notice - does that mean you don't have to give any notice if you haven't worked there for a month yet?

    No, you stil have to give notice - you may need them for a reference.

    It would appear the dilemma AI/ bot is back.

    Yes you've read it right - no notice within first month, most won't try and keep someone clearly unhappy in the first month. (been there)

    I had a rarity the other day of 10 working days notice for an interview (boy is that a rarity) on the day I hear I'm unsuccessful in an application that did require next day interview, two more come along by end of day that offer notice on next interviews so it was just as well I got the practise in! (Currently job seeking whilst in work)

    All the best.

    I feel a bit guilty as they took a chance on me and paid the agency finding fee and now I'm a week in and not enjiying it but then again it was their choice to use an agency.

    Not sure what the dilemma AI/bot comment is about?

    I'm worried if I stay there that I'll see a job I want to go for, and they've gone on and on about how hard it is to book holiday due to staff ratios and not having more than one person off etc etc, and I won't be able to get the time off for interview or I'll feel I have to throw a sicky or something which I'd really hate.

    The other life coaching aspect to your dilemma is, do you really want to leave young children without any help one day as you ve just jacked it in?

    No, and if they're reasonable I'll be reasonable but I wanted to know my rights in case they decide to try and take advantage. I'm not the sort to walk out on a job but I feel the need to understand where I stand just in case.

    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    She's asking about her right to walk out without notice. You are talking about her rights to be given notice or remain in work.

    The employer could get cover staff from an agency.

    If the employer did not want this problem, they should've issued a contract with a proper notice period. They've put themselves in this siutation.
