On 1/17, I was told in writing by my last employer that my job has ended today but I am entitled to payment in lieu of notice for the next 6 months, and so I was kept on the payroll from 1/17 to 4/24.
On 4/25, I started a new job.
I have a P45 from my previous employer showing the termination date as 4/24.
Which ending date should I use for my job on my resume, 1/17 or 4/24?
I want to reduce the gap in unemployment on the resume as much as possible without "fudging" or being labeled dishonest.
