I have asked a few questions over here before, so I'm not going to elaborate on any details and just get to the point. You can get the backstory here: Accepting contract elsewhere to circumvent non-compete clause?
So I've been employed for 4 months now at this new company that has nothing to do with the previous two companies. Two weeks ago, I went to visit the offices of the the subsidiary which I previously worked for, but wasn't contracted to, to say hi (It's a thing here). I hinted at - but didn't outright state, that I want to return. Last week, one of the executive officers contacted me and basically offered me an opportunity to return next year January. In other words, they held their word.
Obviously I would jump at the chance, because I felt it was unfair to move me, hence why I broke away from them entirely. They have all but severed ties with the parent company I was formerly employed at, and therefore the NCC would be waived either way.
The company which I currently work at; where the location is good and the pay is not that much more, employ practices which force me to take a few steps back with my skillset. They didn't ask me to sign a contract when I joined, all I signed was an offer letter which stated my remuneration, my start date, my working hours and literally nothing else. The company closes for the year on December 21 and reopens in the second week of January. I want to know if I can submit my resignation on or before the closedown date, since there was no contract, therefore I shouldn't need to give notice? I don't want to leave in a huff, and at least want to serve some form of notice.
One other thing I am worried about, is that, with there being no concrete contract, there is no set remuneration date, and our paydays are very random. Without a contract to bind me to, I'm concerned that they will stiff me if I resign before closedown, which is very much not ideal.
