Today is Friday. I would like to give my notice by the end of this month (Monday) as the notice period only starts from the end of the month in which it is given. If I am too late it could add an extra month which I would like to avoid.
Unfortunately I doubt that anyone from HR will be at the office this month still which means I won't be able to hand it in in person. It's also already too late to send it via mail since they wouldn't be able to read it at the office, even if it arrived on time.
According to German law I can't quit via E-Mail / Fax so what other options do I have? It seems a bit unfair considering I want to quit on time but I can't.
My contract does not specify any rules for the termination process besides the notice period.
I can bring the letter there myself but no one from HR would be able to read it or acknowledge receiving it.
Today I quit my job. I scheduled a meeting with HR and told them I'd like to leave at the end of my notice period. They took it well and right after the meeting I sent them a scan of my resignation and asked for a confirmation, which I promptly received. I then handed the original copy to someone that will hand it over to HR.
I never expected this to go badly to begin with but I wanted to be on the safe side legally. I'm usually pretty paranoid about these things...
