I need help from someone/people with knowledge in law, or what I can do in this particularly specific situation, I'm talking to a friend about it at
the moment and probably won't do anything about it as I'll explain, but here's my query;
I asked my manager about 3 and a half months ago to leave my job, as I did not enjoy my job and I didn't think it was for me, the company I work for
give you a 3 monthperiod to look for a job but you still work for them, so we both agreed that I'd work until the 14th May. The closer it got to the
14th my manager asked me if I could work until the 31st May because she's going on holiday for 2 weeks. Today they've just offered me a job I used
to work at (in the same company) until the end of June which I have taken as I desperately need the money.
What do I need legal advise for I hear you say? Well, my friend reckons that without a written notice signed by myself they can't let me go legally,
now I haven't signed anything which states I'm leaving the company...but as it's a small family run business which my mother and I work in the
office for, I imagine the relevant paperwork has been filled in etc. So anyway, my friend says if I took them to court I could get them done for
'unlawful dismissal', because they haven't got a written notice so therefore can't ask me to leave if I say 'I've changed my mind, it's then up
to them whether to keep me or sack me, and if they sack me it would be unlawful, and money would be coming my way.
TLDR: Does having no written confirmation of leaving a job entitle me to sue them for 'letting me go'
