I have already joined the new company and have been working for the past 10 days but I haven't received any offer letter or salary breakage slip yet. Is it better to quit the job or continue. I don't know what to do. What will be the problems that occur when I leave the job.?

    Why the hell would you work without having signed a contract?! – ThiefMaster Feb 27 at 11:51

    Something to think about; if you quit tomorrow, would you have any definitive proof that you worked there, were expected to work there, or that they are even obligated to pay you? – user34587 Feb 27 at 11:57
  • What country and what profession is this taking place in? Did you sign anything? – bukwyrm Feb 27 at 11:58

    Which country is that in? In Germany you´d now automatically have a unlimited employment contract with standard conditions and without trial period. This is more of a problem for your employer then yourself. Don´t sign anything you don´t like, you are in a position of power as they already accepted your work. But speak about salary asap, before getting your first payslip! – Daniel Feb 27 at 12:17
  • Check with HR as soon as possible - if there is an industrial accident - are you covered on their insurance? – Solar Mike Feb 27 at 12:53

Is it better to quit the job or continue.

Ask your boss what is happening first.

Never quit a job unless you have a new one or you know you're not going to get paid.

Check with your manager or human resources, when will you be getting paid. If it's not too far in the future then just wait. If it's too far then find out how much.

Chalk it up as a good lesson for future jobs to make sure you have some sort of agreement before taking a new job.

Always be looking as an employer can drop you like a hat for any reason. Always look out for your own interests.

First of all: You do have a contract, so don´t just stop showing up anymore. Unfortunately you did not provide your country, but the base concept is the same in most developed places: You showed up and delivered your work, and they happily accepted your contributions. So you now have kind of a silent agreement that you basically work there.

The problem is, non of the parameters of this contract are defined right now.

  1. If you decide to stay, see that you get those parameters defined, in writing, as soon as possible. You are in a good negotiation position since they already took you on board. State your terms and only sign once the offer is acceptable. Most importantly: Salary, work-times, vacation, and notice periods.

  2. If you want to leave, write a formal letter of resignation and inform yourself if there are any required minimum notice periods in your local law which you ma have to keep.

  3. If you are in doubt weather they treat you fairly or they wont pay you or anything seek legal support. Chances are they ow you some money!
