I started my 3 month probation period on 7th January, it ends in April.
I received my 2nd pay on 24th February which was paid up to 28th February. I was off sick on 11th February following my first covid vaccine and returned to work on 12th February. My wage slip showed that I'd been paid for 11th.
I emailed my resignation on 25th February due to my struggle with arthritis pain, but told them I am happy to work my 1 week notice. I work shifts and was due back in on 28th.
My employer replied and told me that instead of working my notice and if I transfer back the payment made for 11th when I was off sick, which they say was an error and pay back the shift due to be worked on 28th, they would then end my contract with immediate affect.
I replied and agreed to this, not really understanding what my rights are.
As they asked me not come back in, shouldn't I be entitled to Garden leave? And should I transfer money back to them for 11th and 28th February?
Could anyone please advise?
