Notice period

Postby bigduke6 » 21 Jun 2012, 12:31

So my morning kindy is really starting to piss me off. The incompetence of the management is beyond me.

I do not have a contract with the school, so no obligatory notice period.

What do you think is fair?

I am considering resigning at the end of June.

Jesus Quintana: You said it, man. Nobody
fucks with the Jesus.

Mr.Lahey: The shitabyss!
Randy: Mr. Lahey, not another night of the shitabyss, please?!
Mr.Lahey: Ah, fuck it.

Two weeks is fair if you trust them. However, one of my buddies, who also has a JFRV, gave two weeks notice at a school before. The school told him that he could finish that day of teaching and they would find someone else. Not having a contract can lead to sticky situations. Is your school likely to screw you?

Protect yourself, first. Some schools set themselves up for sudden resignations. If the school is sincere and honest, then give them 2 weeks/1 month notice, I think.

It's not a matter of whether I trust the school. I don't, and never will trust your run of the mill kindy.

Personally, I have never had any trust issues with a school. There have been some minor issues. It has always been turning molehills into mountains, which is pretty common in this country (IMHO).

However, the amount of people that I have heard about, who have had issues when it comes to resigning, predisposes me not to trust them. :no-no:

I will probably give them notice at the end of the month. Depending on how much they piss me off will determine whether I give 1 week or 2 weeks. :fume:

I always thought it was best to give your one week notice on the day you got paid.

That's probably the best bet.

Quit after you get paid, eat the few days that you work. Can't trust someone who hires you illegally.

Can I Quit Without Giving Notice?

Teachers are bound by the Labor Standards act regarding what their responsibilities are to employers. You must follow the provisions outlined in Article 15, with specific attention to paragraph 2:

In the case of a special fixed-term contract for a term of more than three years, a worker may, after expiration of three years, terminate the contract by giving notice to his employer thirty days in advance.

In the case of a worker terminating a non-fixed term contract, the provisions of Paragraph one of Article 16 pertaining to the prescribed time limit for serving advance notice shall apply mutatis.

Article 16 states:

Where a worker has continuously worked for more than three months but less than one year, the notice shall be given 10 days in advance.
Where a worker has continuously worked for more than one year but less than three years, the notice shall be given 20 days in advance.
Where a worker has continuously worked for more than three years, the notice shall be given 30 days in advance.
