Can an employee resign during his probationary period without notice?
I am currently in a probationary period(6 months) without a compensation in a small organization. I was given the offer letter which states that i need to give 1 month of notice before leaving the company. have completed 4 months as of now and have now got very good offer from an other company. My doubt is, can i resign without giving the 1 month notice as mentioned in the offer letter? are the rules stated in the offer letter applicable to the employees under probation? somebody please clarify.
also am not under any contract or bond right now.
Generally in the probationary period the employee can leave without notice and the employer can terminate without notice. That’s your chance to get to know each other and if you decide you want to move on, that’s your time to do it.
If you have a problem with your lawyer’s employee?
I have a lawyer who is handling my accident case. Lawyer’s employee has written a rough draft of my demand letter to seek my compensation. However, I notice that the employee has missed around $3000 worth of my medical expenses.
Clearly, I’m going to point this out to the lawyer’s assistant, but how do I express my disappointment in this kid of huge inaccuracy? I feel as though the lawyer should apologize and maybe they should compensate me for making this kind of inaccuracy. (Since I’m paying the lawyer, it should not be my job to check their work. In doing so, spending several hours)
As others have said, you are being unrealistic. Even if you are paying your lawyer (and I assume you are not doing so now, but any fee will come out of a verdict or settlement if there is one), lawyers have their clients review this kind of correspondence precisely because it is their job to check for this kind of thing. The client will undoubtedly know his details better than the lawyer will so it is in fact up to the client to check the letter for factual inaccuracies. Just point it out to the lawyer and his employee and review the next draft of the letter. Do it politely. It was just a mistake and it cost you nothing.
