how much notice should you give when you resign?
« on: July 28, 2013, 10:03:42 AM »

It is usually two weeks however you may have to give notice periods more or less than two weeks.

Can you tell us what other notice periods are ideal for resignation notice periods?

When you start your job you will have a contract which will have details of how much notice either you or the employer has to give for you to stop working. It would be common to be on a months notice if you are on a monthly salary, although some jobs, such as ones for the government may require three months notice. If you are on a temporary contract then it is likely that you will be on a day's notice and a person paid weekly probably needs to give a weeks notice.

It is important that you read the contract that you sign, as this will let you know exactly how long you have to work. If you don't do this then you risk being sued or receiving a bad reference and, if you end up working notice that you were not expecting, you could find that you are late starting the next job that you have lined up, which could obviously have negative consequences. Usually, the more notice you can give, the better, as this shows that you are being respectful to the fact that the company will have to replace you.

It depends on your contract.  Usually while you are in probation it is a weeks notice, from there on in very usually it is 4 weeks notice - I've even known companies that say you HAVE to give notice on the first day of a month otherwise you have to wait until the following month before you can leave (so effectively well over a months notice!)
